In the NHL, maintaining respect between competitors is a valued tradition. When a fellow player compliments your skills, it is a sign of mutual respect and acknowledgement of each other's abilities. This season, Connor McDavid has set a new personal record of 124 points in 65 games and yes he is taking the opportunity to give praise to his rival, Auston Matthews.


McDavid, who is widely considered the best player in the NHL, is known for his ability to outmaneuver defenders with ease. However, he is not hesitant to acknowledge Matthews' shooting talents, stating

"I'm not like one of those guys like Auston Matthews"



Matthews, who is recognized for having one of the best shots in the game, is still refining his overall game and improving his defense. Despite this, his skills are undeniable, and McDavid's compliment is a testament to that.

Although there is mutual respect between the players, McDavid remains focused on leading the Edmonton Oilers to surpass their competition in yet another successful season.
