The most exciting part of a Draft is never knowing who’s actually gonna pan out. Even though clear non playoff teams tank every year to get high draft picks if anything, those are the least reliable of any selection. Heavy lies the crown sort of thing.

Welp… not the case with the new Mayor of Edmonton Connor McD. I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t absolutely tear it up the NHL this season. Dangles like this don’t grow on trees..

 

 

And forget the skills, how about the leadership? Not bad for an 18 year old. WAIT WHAT HE’S ONLY 18??! WTF.

 

 

 

All hail the new KING OF THE NORTH!
