How Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl Were Almost OHL Teammates

Could this single pick back in 2012 have changed Draisaitl’s future and the outlook of the Edmonton Oilers? Take my hand, let’s take a trip down memory…


Looking at the 2017 NHL Awards

For the first time in a long time, I’ll actually be watching the NHL awards ceremony come June 21st.
