Connor McDavid, Oilers
The NHL youngster was the top overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft at the ripe age of 18, and despite dealing with an injury during his first season, he still finished third in the Calder Memorial Trophy voting for rookie of the year. McDavid trains five or six days a week during the offseason and uses squats, deadlifts, cardio training, and agility drills to stay in shape.
McDavid received a lot of hype coming out of the Ontario Hockey League due to his scoring and playmaking ability and some have pegged him “The Next One,” a potential heir to Sidney Crosby and Wayne Gretzky as one of the best hockey players ever. That’s quite a bit of pressure to put on a teenage kid’s shoulders, but McDavid proved during his first season that he could skate with the big boys with this defense-splitting goal against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
