Afternoon Line- Ken Holland

“I managed some great players in Detroit: Yzerman, Fedorov, Shanahan, the Russian Five, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Lidstrom, Chelios. I’ve not managed anybody like Connor. He’s 22. Zetterberg and Datsyuk just became Zetterberg and Datsyuk until they were 25 and 26. They played in the NHL at 21 and 22 but they were just support parts, and they grew into being ready to carry the torch and have a team compete for a Stanley Cup. When you factor in Connor’s age and what he’s accomplished, he’s already got on his résumé a Hart Trophy and leading the league in scoring once or twice.  I haven’t managed anybody close to Connor McDavid.”

-Ken Holland, GM of the Edmonton Oilers on The Fan590 in Toronto today.  Bruce McCurdy of the Edmonton Journal has more.
