Connor McDavid was in Buffalo on Thursday to help announce that an OHL game from his Erie Otters team will take place at First Niagara Center in October.

Of course, he was asked about the Buffalo Sabres, which could be the team that drafts him first overall in the 2015 class next June. "It's a great organization from what I've seen," McDavid said. "I know Cody Hodgson pretty well and I hear nothing but good things. They love playing here. Sam Reinhart was so proud and so happy when he got drafted here. It's a great organization and it would be an awesome spot to play." He will be in Buffalo again, along with American top prospect Jack Eichel, before Halloween.

Connor McDavid has reached the 40-point mark.

McDavid has 18 goals and 22 assists in just 32 OHL games. Of course, what makes him remarkable isn't his stats, but the age at which he's producing them. McDavid entered the OHL at 15 and his 16th birthday isn't until Jan. 13. Obviously, he's a long way off from playing in the NHL, but he'll be someone that scouts will keep a close eye on for years to come.

Connor McDavid is reportedly close to signing a multi-year contract with Reebok's CCM Hockey brand.

He would become the youngest-ever hockey player to endorse Reebok at the tender age of 15.

"I won't get into the terms of it, but it would obviously extend into when and if he is in the National Hockey League." McDavid has 17 goals and 37 points in 32 games with Erie this season in his first year of OHL competition after he was granted 'exceptional player' status.
