Connor McDavid opens up on personal journey to the Stanley Cup Final

The Oilers had their last practice ahead of Game 7 on Sunday. Following the practice session, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl answered reporters’ questions during a media availability in Sunrise.

When asked to describe the long-term journey of his career leading up to the current moment, McDavid mentioned the ups and downs he has had to go through to reach the present point in his career. The Oilers captain said:

“I could do a lot with that question. That's a pretty broad question. Um, what's it like? You know, it's been a long road to get to this point.”
“It's been a lot of ups and downs, a lot of lessons along the way. A lot of lessons. But it takes a lot, it really does,” he added.

McDavid was then asked about his experience of the past week and how the team handled the pressure and the process of proving doubters wrong after being down 0-3 in the series. In response, he said that his team had played some of their best hockey lately.

“Yeah, it's been fun. It's been fun to be a part of,” Connor McDavid said. “The group has played some of our best hockey over the course of the last seven, eight days. So, we feel good about where things are at, but with that being said, it comes down to one game.”

The Panthers will host Edmonton at Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise, Florida, on Monday for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
