Connor McDavid's Controversial Acceptance Speech



Connor McDavid, this year's recipient of the prestigious Ted Lindsay Award, has made a splash not only with his career-high 153-point campaign, but also with his acceptance speech at the NHL Awards ceremony.

The award, conferred annually, recognises the most outstanding player of the regular season, as voted by his peers.

McDavid, the star player of the Edmonton Oilers, took the opportunity during his speech to extend thanks to fans across all NHL arenas for the energy they bring to each game, creating an unforgettable atmosphere.


Yet, it was his playful jab at the Calgary Flames fans that stole the show, generating laughs from the audience in Nashville.

A Subtle Dig and Laughter



In a moment of candid humour, McDavid, who's known for his sporting rivalry with the Flames, did not shy away from teasing the opposition's fanbase.

This light-hearted moment was met with chuckles at the ceremony, leaving a memorable imprint on the event. He said:

Lastly, to all you hockey fans out there — even you Flames fans — you guys bring the energy to all the buildings across the league. It makes it special to play in front of you guys every night.


McDavid's moment of humour, wrapped in a heartfelt thanks to the fans, clearly demonstrates why he is not only a leading figure on the ice, but also a fan-favourite of it.
