Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid continues his move into the spotlight, earning a spot on the cover of NHL 18.

Connor McDavid landed the cover of EA Sports NHL 18.
The game will be available worldwide on September 15, per Sportsnet’s Steven Loung.
EA Sports also provided a trailer for the upcoming game, which includes some impressive graphics and a three-on-three arcade mode:
#NHL18. Built for the new NHL. Young Stars Edition 👉 https://t.co/x3Iwl52oZV https://t.co/Y36reNNfzK
The game is labeled the “young stars edition,” which makes McDavid the perfect choice for the cover.
Despite being just 20 years old, the center led the NHL with 70 assists and 100 points, winning the Ross Trophy in the process. He also named the Ted Lindsay Award winner Wednesday as the league’s most outstanding player.
Beating out finalists Sidney Crosby and Brent Burns for the award showed just how good McDavid already is at such a young age.
Considering he has already led the Oilers to the second round of the playoffs, the sky is the limit for the young player.
