Oilers' 19-year-old McDavid: youngest captain in NHL history

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) The Edmonton Oilers have made Connor McDavid the youngest captain in NHL history.

McDavid will wear the ''C'' despite being 19 years and 266 days old and having just 45 games of NHL experience under his belt.

It might seem intimidating for a player entering his second season to lead teammates who have been around the block a few times, but McDavid said he's more comfortable in this role than he was serving as captain of the North America team at the World Cup of Hockey.
