Report: Connor McDavid to play regular season game in Buffalo
For one night at least, Connor McDavid will call Buffalo's First Niagara Center home.
The Sabres, who surely lead the NHL in press conferences this summer, have scheduled another one for Thursday to announce that McDavid's Erie Otters and the Niagara Ice Dogs will stage a regular-season Ontario Hockey League game at the FNC.
"He’s definitely the best player in the world for his age," Erie teammate, and Capitals first rounder, Andre Burakovsky told The Washington Post. "He could be in the NHL right now. He’s an unbelievable player. In my opinion he’s the new [Sidney] Crosby. He could easily be the best player in the world in a couple years.”
A sneak preview of the franchise savior? Someone in the Sabres marketing department deserves a raise.
