With the Tigers out of the pennant race I’m looking more and more toward hockey season. It looks like the number one pick in the NHL daft, Connor McDavid is having a pretty good camp for the Edmonton Oilers.
FYI: The Oilers are in town to play the Red Wings on 11/27.
of the OHL’s Erie Otters is out 5-6 weeks with a broken pinky. He suffered the injury in a fight with the Mississauga Steelheads’ Bryson Cianfron.
McDavid has been putting up Gretzky-esq number this season and was projected to be the first or second pick the the 2015 NHL draft. In 18 games he has recorded 16 goals and 35 assists for 51 points and a +34.
I was looking forward to going to Sarnia next week to see McDavid play against the Sting. I guess I’ll have to wait.
FYI: Based on the video above, it looks like McDavid can handle himself as well.
