Justin Braun will likely find himself up against Connor McDavid a fair amount of the time in the Sharks' first round series.
Though Braun won't be the only player tasked with containing McDavid, that will be among his key duties. "He gets his eyes up, he’s going to make plays," Braun said. "If you can get on him early – good gap in the neutral zone will be huge. Other than that, you’ve just got to play those guys hard." McDavid won the Art Ross Trophy so containing him is going to be a major challenge, but if the Sharks can pull it off then it will go a long way towards winning the first round series.
