BLOG: McDavid ready to meet expectations

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

SUNRISE, FL - Since he was playing midget in Toronto, Connor McDavid has had high expectations. He was granted exceptional status by Hockey Canada and has played above his age group right up to junior, where he has had a highlight-filled career with the Erie Otters.

He has dealt with the outside pressure his whole career and that won’t stop him from working to be the best player he can be.

“My expectations for myself exceed any of those that are put on me,” said McDavid. “It’s something that I can’t really worry about. I’ve just got to make sure I’m playing my game and doing all that because if I meet my expectations the chances are I’ll meet your guys’ as well.”
