1 assist on the night in another Otters loss. Still waiting on a big statement game, but he keeps his point streak alive at 7 games.

He's waiting for big Dougie Hamilton and the Ice Dogs and that's when he'll explode for his ''big'' game. Revenge shall be sweet lol.

I am with you on this. When it comes to prospects being consistent is the most important thing too look at imop.

He was the best player on the ice tonight, I was at the game, he stands out. He is very slick with the puck and you can see that he moves to where the puck is going to be. He should have had 4 points on the night easily

Still waiting on his statement game but has a 7 game point streak.... anymore rookies in this league with a 7 game point streak???

15 year old being consistent is more impressive for me then a 4 or 5 point game... the kid burned what could be a top pairing for the Penguins last week...

Agreed. This guy is 15, he's just getting his feet wet. He's something special for sure.

Eh, my post didn't come out so well. Obviously I think a 7 game points streak is a statement in itself. There aren't many kids who can do that, let alone a brand new rookie. He doesn't need to have a big 4 point game to convince people how good he is, but it just seems like one of these games it will happen if his team can just convert on their chances.

Looking forward to watching him play on Friday night on Sportsnet against the London Knights. Hopefully this whole national TV thing doesn't go to his head. If he finds the idea fun, we should see a good game from him.

yes, perhaps I should've been more specific and said Anglo-Scot or Anglo-Celt... anyways, my point was, it's super white, lol. Nothing wrong with it obviously, just teasing... it's funny though. Super generic British/Canadian name.

Josh Yohe,the Penguins beat writer went to watch him play and raved about this kid picking apart Scott Harrington and Olli Maatta.He is making comparsions between Crosby and McDavid. How Sid wears 87 and was born in 1987. How McDavid wears 97 and was born in 1997.They are both Left Handed Centers and awareness was the biggest thing he saw and compared.

Kid is going to be a stud. His speed and 1 on 1 moves is filthy.

His vision, explosive skating, and dangerous 1v1 play. He sees the whole ice like Crosby, and has that similar ability to control the play. He is the only player I have yet to draw parallels with Crosby.

Wow! Huge praise coming from Crosby today.

"He looks like he's got it all," Crosby told The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "When I watched him play, he reminded me of myself."

"I like the way he distributes the puck," Crosby said. "He seems to have all the tools."


"I can't believe Sidney Crosby said that about me," McDavid told the Tribune-Review. "I mean, that's my childhood hero. I'm a Pens fan because of him. I'm totally speechless. I'm amazed."

He reminds me of Duchene when he skates with the puck.
