We’ve talked about this endlessly but I just can’t stop thinking about it. Connor McDavid is already the best player on the universe. He’s said time and time again that he wants to become an even BETTER player and you always end up snickering to yourself because you think: “how can the best player we’ve ever seen become even MORE skilled?”
Well Ryan Nugent-Hopkins just confirmed that the best player in the world is getting better, and he’s seen it with his own eyes.

As the tweet says, Nuge is currently in Red Deer with some team executives doing some business and when asked about Connor McDavid, he said he thinks Davo is getting even faster. As if we needed to hear any more quotes about Connor McDavid to make us more excited for the season. It’s wild to think the fastest player in the NHL right now is only 21. When Connor adds some old man muscle onto his legs he’s going to be 1000x faster and all of our TV’s are going to implode.
With Nuge confirming the fact that Connor is indeed getting faster, we know he’s well on his way to shattering his fastest skater time from last year at the All-Star game and scoring 95 goals this season. The Connor McDavid hype train is leaving the station. You’ll be missing out this season if you don’t hop on it with me.
