Report: Connor McDavid to play in World Championships

Put your money down now hockey fans, Team Canada’s odds to win Gold in the 2018 World Ice Hockey Championships just jumped up dramatically. As our good Swedish friend, Uffe Bodin reported earlier today, Oscar Klefbom spilled the beans and made it official that Connor will be suiting up in the red and white.

Oilersnation, are you there? It’s me, Dustin Nielson

What say you Oilersnation? It’s me, the new guy. You may have heard me on the radio, you may have seen me on TV, but you have never had an opportunity to read anything I’ve written unless of course, you use to visit HockeysFuture.com back in the late nineties. If you did, you would know that…
