Connor McDavid is the projected first-overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft for a reason. 

The Erie Otters center displayed part of the skill set that NHL general managers are drooling over on this brilliant individual effort in an Under-20 exhibition game against the Czech Republic on Friday.

Look, we know it's a rather meaningless game at a national junior team summer development camp, but, quite frankly, it's been a long summer and this goal is as nice as we might see when the hockey season actually gets going.

So grab a cold one, enjoy, and take heart: Hockey will be back for real very soon.
