On his biggest stage yet, Connor McDavid was impressive. The projected first-overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft helped Canada capture gold at the World Junior Championship, and displayed his skills throughout the tournament. McDavid finished the run, tied for Canada’s lead in scoring, with 11 points (3-8-11) in 7 games.
Oilers General Manager Craig MacTavish attended the tournament and gave his thoughts on McDavid.
“He’s a generational player for sure,” MacTavish said. “He’s going to be, along with (USA’s Jack) Eichel, I’ll say he’s going to probably be the most dynamic player that we’ve seen and he’ll be the most productive in my mind. Pretty impressive skill set.”
