Connor McDavid’s offseason training continues this week at the Power Edge Pro camp, and TSN posted some great video of the Oilers’ captain having some fun while wearing a mic with former NHLer, Carlo Colaiacovo. Needless to say, Colaiacovo could be one of Connor’s biggest fans.
If there’s one thing that I’ll never get tired of it’s watching Connor McDavid do his thing. I don’t care if that ‘thing’ is during a game or in practice, because the magic he makes with his skates and stick is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Frankly, the tape looks like it’s in slow motion because the dude has wheels unlike anyone else and that becomes apparent when you hear Colaiacovo pump his tires throughout.
I promise that it’ll be worth your time to spend a couple of minutes watching this video.
Now that you’ve all watch the video, there are a couple things I want to point out.
1) Carlo Colaiacovo played 470 NHL games and he’s talking about Connor in a way that makes me think he’s just as big of a fan as I am.
2) I want to thank Brian and Kelly McDavid for giving Connor a spot to stickhandle and work on his hands as a kid because those magic mitts of his are a gift. How he figured out to speed up the wiring between his brain and hands is a mystery to us mere mortals, but it’s fascinating to watch and makes me warm in the bathing suit region.
3) Connor needs to put a quarter in the swear jar. It’s okay, though, I’ll take care of it just this once.
