It's always amazing for fans to get a peek into the mindset and techniques of NHL stars, especially when they're talking about each other. A recent video surfaced of McDavid mic'd up on the Oilers bench, trying to break down the strategy of Nathan MacKinnon and explain it to Zach Hyman so the Oilers could take advantage of it.


You know what I wanna start doing on those, but I don't wanna do it ‘cause I don't wanna get you killed sometimes, is do what Nate does sometimes. He just takes off and goes like, mash ‘em, you know? You just have to flip it up, but sometimes it'll bring that guy to you.

It's an incredible look inside the strategy and communication going on the Oilers bench, and it also shows some great leadership from McDavid. Clearly, McDavid is picking up on effective trends around the league and using that knowledge to make his own team better.


It's a great look into the relationship of one of the NHL's best duos in McDavid and Hyman, and fascinating as a hockey fan in general. With this kind of analysis and communication happening on the bench, the Oilers have another tool on top of their great talents to make the team even better.
