McDavid will be a main focus throughout this season (The Canadian Press)

MONTREAL — Since Canada's national junior team does not have individual name bars on its jerseys, it's really hard to distinguish Connor McDavid from the other players.

Except for the incongruous combo of wearing an alternate captain's A and full facial protection, because he's 17 years old. And then there was the goal that the projected NHL No. 1 overall choice added to his highlight reel during Canada's exhibition game against the Czech Republic in Montreal. In the second period, McDavid slalomed through the defence pair of Robert Cerny and David Klok, then turned goalie Miroslav Svoboda inside-out as he tucked the puck into the corner.

#McJesus, indeed.

McDavid seems poised to hit his stride. As a 16-year-old sophomore last season with the Ontario Hockey League's Erie Otters, he could beat defenders with his fleetness in open-ice situations, and can often out-think them during sustained set-ups in the offensive zone. Now that the wunderkind has looks bigger, stronger out there," junior players have another factor to worry about when it comes to trying to slow him down.

Fortunately for the rest of the OHL, it only has to account for McDavid for one more season.
