Edmonton Oilers meet Florida Panthers in Game 1 of Stanley Cup final

SUNRISE — Connor McDavid will make his Stanley Cup final debut as his Edmonton Oilers face the Florida Panthers.

Game 1 is tonight at Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise, Fla.

The 27-year-old McDavid is a three-time Hart Trophy winner as the NHL's most valuable player.

He's also a five-time Art Ross Trophy award winner as the league's highest points getter.

Despite that, McDavid's never been able to play for a Stanley Cup.

He was selected first overall by the Oilers in 2015 in an NHL Draft held at the Panthers' arena in South Florida.
