Connor McDavid On The Non-Calls Against Him

from Sportsnet,

Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor McDavid has fired back, in his own way, about not drawing nearly as many penalty calls as other elite-level players.

When asked if he feels he’s deserving of getting more calls, McDavid was brief but pointed.

"Guess I just gotta shut up about this," he told reporters during media availability on Thursday.

It wasn't immediately clear, but there was a sense McDavid was responding to critics that he shouldn't get preferential treatment and should just play.

“Yeah and he complained about it a little bit, that he wasn’t getting the calls," former NHL coach John Tortorella, now an ESPN analyst, said last week. "Quite honestly, just shut up. Don’t talk about it."
