Connor McDavid is a star center for the C since 2015 and he is one of the most talked-about hockey prospects in years.

Born in Toronto, Canada on January 13, 1997, Conor McDavid grew up playing hockey in his area. Son of Brian and mother Kelly McDavid, Conor is the youngest sibling and has an older brother Cameron McDavid.
When Connor got his first pair of rollerblades just before his third birthday, he instantly rolled around the family’s unfinished basement without falling and just like that his parents knew that Conor wasn't like the other kids.
At 4, the only question was exactly how good he would become. In his first year of hockey, instead of joining the usual swarm of children hacking at the puck, Connor would calmly wait outside the throng, waiting for the puck to emerge. When it inevitably did, he would take off with it, the other children chasing him.
Seeing McDavid's special talent he was given the status of "Exceptional Player" by Hockey Canada, which allowed him to play major junior hockey one year earlier.
On July 5, 2017, McDavid signed an 8-year, $100 million extension contract with the Edmonton Oilers.

Despite having a salary of $832,500 thousand per year, Conor's net worth is still unknown.
In 2011–12 McDavid recorded 79 goals and 130 assists for 209 points in 88 games at the minor midget level and was named the Greater Toronto Hockey Leauge (GTHL) Player of the Year. After gaining so much praise, McDavid was permitted McDavid to play in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) bu the governing body for amateur hockey in Canada.
McDavid first played in an Ice Hockey World Championship (IIHF) tournament in 2013 when he joined the Canadian under-18 team at the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships in Sochi, Russia.
During training camp for the 2014–15 season, McDavid was named the captain of the Erie Otters. In the 47 games that McDavid played with the Otters during the 2014–15 regular season, he registered 44 goals and 76 assists, finishing third in OHL scoring.
McDavid played for Canada at the 2014 World Junior Championship where the team finished fourth. He also represented Canada in the 2015 World Junior Championship in Toronto and Montreal where they won gold on January 5, 2015.
At 19 years old, the versatile center was selected by the Edmond Oilers in the 2015 NHL Draft and was named the captain of the team in October 2016, becoming the youngest captain in the history of NHL.
On November 19, 2016, in a game against the Dallas Stars, McDavid recorded his first career hat-trick in a 5–2 win ending a 10-game goal drought. McDavid became the first Oiler in history to score a hat-trick in an opening night game, which took place on October 4, 2017.
