Captaincy a defining moment of Connor McDavid’s MVP-worthy season, says Oilers coach

The defining moment of Connor McDavid‘s standout season happened off the ice, according to his coach.

  • Happy McAnniversary! Edmonton marks 2 years since Oilers won Connor McDavid lottery

  • Connor McDavid calls NHL’s decision to skip 2018 Olympics a ‘bit upsetting’

  • NHL stars in awe of Connor McDavid: ‘It’s incredible how fast he is’

    Todd McLellan says the introduction of McDavid as team captain on Oct. 5 sent a message to the young centre about the confidence the Oilers had in him, but also their expectations of him.

    The 20-year-old responded by posting 100 points to win this year’s Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s scoring leader and earn a nomination for the Hart Trophy that goes to the player judged to be the most valuable to their team.

    On Tuesday, McDavid was also announced as one of the finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award for most outstanding NHL player as selected by members of the National Hockey League Players’ Association.

    “It happened the day that he was told he was going to lead this group,” McLellan said Tuesday. “(We) sewed a ‘C’ onto his jersey.

    “I think that elevated his, not sense of value, but just his priority list in the locker room for lack of a better explanation.

    “He realized he was going to have to be on the forefront and produce on a nightly basis, not only offensively, but defensively, practice habits, carrying the spirit of the team, answering for the group and he’s done a real good job.”

    If McDavid wins the Hart on June 21, he would be just the third player under the age of 21 to do so after Sidney Crosby (2007) and former Oiler Wayne Gretzky (1980).

    “It’s special and it’s something I’m very proud of, but it’s a credit to be able to play with this group of guys and play with the players we have in this room,” McDavid said. “Definitely makes playing hockey a lot of fun.”

    Crosby, a two-time winner, joins Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and McDavid as this year’s nominees.

    “He’s a guy I grew up watching obviously and to be up for this award with him, pretty cool,” McDavid said of Crosby.

    McDavid compiled 30 goals and 70 assists playing all 82 games this season, and led the Oilers to their first playoff appearance since 2006.

    Crosby, now 29, totalled 44 goals and 45 assists in 75 games.

    Bobrovsky, 26, posted a 41-17-5 record., a goals-against average of 2.06 and a save percentage of .931 for the Blue Jackets.

    McDavid and the Oilers lead their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal against the Anaheim Ducks two games to one into Wednesday’s Game 4 at Rogers Place.

    Pittsburgh was also up 2-1 in their Eastern Conference semifinal against the Washington Capitals.

    A Stanley Cup featuring Crosby and McDavid is a tantalizing prospect, but Crosby’s long-term status was unclear after suffering a concussion Monday.

    The hit on Crosby by Washington defenceman Matt Niskanen was the talk of the hockey world Tuesday, but McDavid declined to join the chatter.

    “I saw the play. It happened so fast, I don’t have too much of an opinion on it,” he said. “You never want to see someone get hurt obviously, especially at this time of the year.”

    McDavid, a six-foot-one, 200-pound centre from Newmarket, Ont., was nominated for the Calder Trophy last year despite a rookie season cut short by 37 games due to a broken clavicle.

    Despite his poise and performance, his sophomore season wasn’t always smooth sailing.

    “It was my first full regular season and there’s a lot of ups and downs,” McDavid said. “There’s a lot of times when you’re not playing your best hockey and you’ve got to get back to it.

    “Earlier in the year, I think I had a 10-game goal drought or something like that. Everyone was harping on me then.”

    He’s had Gretzky close by this season to help him deal with the stresses that come with hockey success and responsibility at a young age. Gretzky was named vice-chair of the Oilers Entertainment Group shortly after McDavid was introduced as team captain.

    “Now especially, more than ever, I’ve had to rely on him and talk to him about certain things,” McDavid said. “Just going through this whole thing for the first time.”

Paparazzi facing heavy fine for Kate Middleton topless photos

French prosecutors asked a court on Tuesday to impose a heavy fine on celebrity magazine Closer if it is found guilty of invading the privacy of Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, by publishing topless photos of her in 2012.


Laurence Pieau, the editor of Closer; Ernesto Mauri, chief executive of Italian publisher Mondadori, the magazine’s owner; and two photographers from a Paris agency who are suspected of taking the pictures appeared at a court hearing in the Paris suburb of Nanterre to answer charges brought under French privacy laws.

Closer magazine, a weekly round-up of celebrity gossip, published in September 2012 a series of photos of Middleton, the wife of Prince William, second-in-line to the British throne, topless while on holiday in southern France.

Britain’s royal family began legal action against the magazine for what it called a “grotesque” breach of privacy after publication of the pictures, taken as the royal couple relaxed on a balcony of a chateau in the Luberon region.

The pictures rekindled memories in Britain of the media pursuit of William’s mother, Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997 while being chased by paparazzi.

The two photographers, present in court on Tuesday, denied having taken the photos, saying they had been unable to find out where the royal couple were staying.

“We went round and round looking for bodyguards, British cars … We didn’t see anybody,” one of the photographers, Cyril Moreau, told the court.

Court documents said that mobile phone records showed that the two photographers were in the vicinity of the house at the time.

A lawyer for the magazine sought to justify publication of the photos on public interest grounds, saying they disproved rumors circulating at the time that Middleton might be anorexic.

Jean Veil, lawyer for the Duchess of Cambridge, said the article which accompanied the photos was only a pretext for publishing the pictures.

The court will hand down its ruling on July 4.

Angelo Musitano, notorious Hamilton mobster, killed in shooting

Hamilton police are investigating the fatal shooting of notorious mobster Angelo Musitano.

Homicide unit Det. Sgt. Peter Thom said Tuesday night that officers were called to a Chesapeake Drive house, near Rockhaven Lane, in Waterdown at around 4 p.m.

Thom said after police and paramedics arrived, Musitano was found inside a pick-up truck with multiple gunshot wounds. He later died at hospital. Musitano is the city’s fourth homicide victim of 2017.

Thom said it’s believed the shooting was targeted. He said witnesses reported seeing a man with a heavy build wearing a dark toque, black jacket and beige pants leaving the scene in a dark-coloured, four-door sedan.

Angelo Musitano is the younger brother of Pat Musitano. In 1997, the Musitano brothers were charged with first-degree murder in ordering the death of Hamilton mob boss Johnny “Pops” Papalia. Three years later, they were sentenced to 10 years in prison for conspiracy to commit murder in the shooting death of Niagara crime boss Carmen Barillaro.

The hitman for both murders, Kenneth Murdock, took a plea deal and named the Musitanos as the men who ordered the killings.

The Musitano brothers were released from prison in 2007.

Pat Musitano’s SUV was set on fire in the driveway of his St. Clair Boulevard home in the fall of 2015.

Meanwhile, investigators are looking for surveillance video from the area. Anyone with information is being asked to call police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.


B.C. Election 2017: Key developments from Day 22

VANCOUVER – A look at some key developments from Day 22 of the B.C. election campaign for each of the parties:


— NDP leader John Horgan promised investments into health care while campaigning in Kamloops on Tuesday, calling a shortfall of family doctors in the area a crisis.

— He says the NDP would invest in a new patient care tower at Royal Inland Hospital and build urgent care facilities across the province.


— Liberal Health Minister Terry Lake, who isn’t seeking re-election, showed up at the campaign stop to dispute the New Democrats claims that 30,000 people in the area are without a family doctor, saying no party can improve access to primary care overnight.


— Liberal Leader Christy Clark appears to be making the dispute with the United States over softwood a key election issue while campaigning in Merritt.

— Clark promised a hefty $70 per tonne carbon tax on U.S. thermal coal that’s shipped through the province’s ports, making it uncompetitive in the global market.

— She says it’s the right time “to send a strong message” to the U.S. administration and “lumber barons” that the province will not back down after the Americans imposed a 20 per cent levy on Canadian softwood, threatening the sector in B.C.


— Green Leader Andrew Weaver attacked the NDP during a campaign stop in Vancouver, saying the party has made “disturbing” multibillion-dollar promises without saying how they would be paid for.

— Weaver says the New Democrats’ plan to end MSP premiums is not “fully costed” compared to the Green’s strategy.

— He also says his party has introduced two bills in the legislature to try to get the ride sharing industry going, while the New Democrats’ plans for the industry lacks information.
