Poor MacKinnon. His teammate and friend Jonathan Drouin is being used by the coach as an offensive player while he's toiling away on the 4th grinder/checking/defensive line - and it's actually skewing people's view of him draftwise! Not saying he's the surefire #1 overall pick, but considering his role on Team CAN, of course one is going to be underwhelmed by his point totals when his line isn't supposed to really be an offensive line at all (and he's not being used as a center!).

As in the SSS, if MacKinnon were centering Drouin and Huberdeau, watch out.
