Top prospect Connor McDavid shoots, puck explodes


In case you needed another reason to be hyped about Connor McDavid: He literally caused a puck to explode during Tuesday’s practice by firing a shot off the crossbar.

Jay McKee, who is McDavid’s assistant coach with the OHL’s Erie Otters and a veteran of 802 NHL games, provided some photographic evidence:

McDavid is an early frontrunner to be selected with the first overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft and is regarded as a potential franchise cornerstone. He has 11 goals and 34 points in 12 OHL games this season.
