Edmonton Oilers wonderkid Connor McDavid doesn't turn 20 years old until January 13, but on Wednesday, he was named captain of the Oilers and the youngest team captain in NHL history:
McDavid is 19 years, 266 days old, which is 20 days younger than Gabriel Landeskog was when the Colorado Avalanche made him the youngest captain in league history in 2012.
McDavid also became the Oilers' first captain since the 2014-15 season when Andrew Ference relinquished his role and opted to become an alternate captain alongside Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
