BLOG: “Be ready,” Edmonton

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

BUFFALO, NY - It is clear that Dylan Strome holds his Erie Otters teammate, Connor McDavid, in high regard. McDavid, the top-ranked prospect in the 2015 NHL Draft has had a lot of success so far in his hockey career and Strome has been witness to the type of player he is.

Strome was asked what Edmonton fans might see from McDavid, should he go first overall in the draft as expected.

“Be ready is all I can say,” Strome said. “He’s going to do some things to get the whole arena going ‘ooh’ or ‘ahh’ and doing something like that. They’ll see it and it’s pretty spectacular to watch. If anyone can get into a practice, that might be even more impressive. What he does out there to some of his teammates and some guys on the team. It’s fun, he’s fun to watch and he’s pretty special so they’ll get to love him.”
