Connor McDavid: Unplugged … the Oilers Star on Hall Trade, Lucic Signing, and More
TORONTO — Connor McDavid won’t bid adieu to his teenage years for another five months, but he certainly doesn’t talk or act like a kid.
Or, for that matter, play like one.
“I’m not some 18 year old kid anymore,” declared McDavid, who must feel like a grizzled NHL veteran with the amount of life-rattling experiences he has gone through over such a short span.
Always known as a kid who flashed maturity far beyond his age, the past 19 months have brought with it a mixture of concentrated highs and lows that would have left the heads of most ordinary teens spinning with confusion.
But, as we all know, there is nothing “ordinary” about Connor McDavid. As such, the adversity that has smacked him in the face over that span has helped make him stronger both physically and mentally.
