Juat about, or the next mini Gretzky. Either comparison, he's simply exceptionally talented.

They were saying the same thing about Nathan MacKinnon 2 years ago, that he was the "next Crosby".  It's tough to say whether a 16 year old will turn into the next mega-superstar.  Let's see where this kid is at when he's 18.  MacKinnon is still seen as an impact player, but all the "Crosby" talk has died down.

I remember the comparison that was heaped on MacKinnon, and, now on MacDavid. Perhaps it is a bit too early to begin the accolades, but then again, MacDavid may already be termed much more talented than MacKinnon. 

There has to be a reason why Crosby said  that MacDavid reminds him of himself.  :)

Only the second time in thirty years a hockey tragedy has happened in the history of the QMJHL. The news left many junior players shaken.

Scary situation...Montreal prospect Tim Bozon, (chosen in the third round of the 2012 draft), who toils for the Kootenay Ice, has reportedly contracted "a form of  acute bacterial meningitis" called Neisseria Meningitis which is "highly contagious".

Teammates, including the opposition team the Saskatoon Blades (which were his last oponents) are all taking antibiotics as precaution.

Very scary..similar to what happened to Jamie McLennan while in the NHL he came down with bacterial meningitis but thankfully recovered after a scary day of intensive care.  Hope this kid is ok.
