I love how TSN somehow got a hold of his GTHL stats (mentioned in this clip at 0:36) but the OHL couldn't.

The exact number is 209 points in 88 games.

He reminds me of a faster Patrick Kane, have rarely seen anyone handle the puck like that at top speed. He is very Russian-esque reminded me of Yakupov but he may actually be closer to Pavel Bure style wise than Yak himself.

Just watched the All-State Canadians game, and WOW..Kid has incredible speed and hands. Seemed like he could blow by defenders at will, and had a great soft touch on his saucer passes. Not to mention the dekes...

Clearly ahead of his age group's learning curve.

This kid could be scary good, though. Wow was he fantastic today.

On a side note, I can see Tavares coaching one day. Face-wise, he totally looks the part.

I think it's his demeanour.

I think it had more to do with coaching against

Hallsy sure looks like a hockey player. Or a donkey.

Is it just me, but all the TOP END ELITE talent seems to coming out of the greater Vancouver area and the greater Toronto area. Ok, not all, but these two areas are spitting out a lot of talented players at a rate far above others in the country. anybody else noticing the same?

Considering the population distribution... Toronto should be producing a great deal of players. Saskatchewan still outpaces its own population by a lot in terms of producing hockey I would say.

For a John Tavares, there's still a Matt Duchene from Halliburton. For a Pietrangelo, there's still a Doughty from Ottawa. There's good players from all over but obviously the places with the most people will probably produce the most players..

Sorry for nitpicking but Doughty is from London. Good point made though, the high end talent is rather spread out.

Getting really excited to see what McDavid can do in the OHL.

What are some realistic expectations for him as a 15 year old? Tavares had 77 points so I would assume McDavid should be around there if he truly is the next big star.

It wouldn't be to big of a stretch to predict a 25-35 season for the kid, with potential to do more damage. A lot more damage.

Three and a half weeks until the Knights season opener and McDavid comes to town, I'm excited.

Yikes, that's some rough defensive work for 20 black in that first video. Gets absolutely burnt at the offensive blue line, and then has terrible positioning on the goal by McDavid, basically laid down at the weakside post and let him walk to the net.

I was at that game. Both were primary beauty assists. Hes a real playmaker and has excellent vision and at protecting the puck. He was in a whole other league compared to everyone on the ice. Strome never played that night or dane fox so it wasnt hard to be leaps and bpunds ahead of everyone on the ice

He should get plenty of ice time so if he is capable he should have the chance to put up those kind of numbers.

I was very impressed with him in the all Canadians game, and I'm very excited to see what he does this year.

Actually per capita Edmonton is the best city at producing NHL talent followed by Ottawa/Gatineau.

Unless Edmonton has 116 NHLers currently playing, it falls short of matching a city like Welland (pop. 50,000) for example, which has a 1 to 7,000 ratio, and has produced 7 current NHLers: Nathan Horton, Paul Bissonnette, Dan Girardi, Dan Paille, Andre Deveaux, Matt Ellis & Cal Clutterbuck.

I've only seen him play once in that game on TSN, but let me just say that he stuck our like a sore thumb there...just so much better than everyone.

Thunder Bay Ont, has to be close but has 100 000 pop, but big names such as eric, jordan, marc staal, Tommy and Taylor Pyatt, Sharp, Auld, Bortuzzo, Letowski(not active), taylor chorney(birth), also ryan and greg johnson

also looking forward to seeing mcdavid start the season, erie shouldnt be as bad as they usually are, they have dansk now in net and a young team that was even younger last year so many of the players have a couple years under their belt
