Connor McDavid recounts Gretzky calling him when he was 15
Probably No. 1 overall pick Connor McDavid joined the show to talk about his future in the NHL.
McDavid said he has several nicknames …. but he doesn’t like them because “all hockey players suck at giving nicknames.” Dan suggested “The Frozen One” … like the Chosen One.
McDavid said that Wayne Gretzky called him when he was 15 to introduce himself. He said he was in a car with his buddies and had to turn the music down in a panic.
McDavid said that he grew a beard after this year’s playoffs and it “was a bit patchy.”
