SUNRISE, FL - The overwhelming thought amongst those in the hockey world is that Connor McDavid is ready to play in the NHL next season. The Oilers selected the highly talented centre first overall this year.

If McDavid expects to compete at the high level he’s capable of when he makes that leap, he says he needs to beef up.

“You’ve got to get a lot bigger and a lot stronger and faster and all that,” said McDavid. “You’re playing against men now. It’s a big jump. I have a big summer ahead of me for sure.”

McDavid was named the OHL and CHL Player of the Year this season, and recorded 120 points (44-76-120) in 47 games for the Erie Otters.
