Edmonton has been called home by a lot of great players in NHL history, including two of the greatest players in NHL history.

Both Wayne Gretzky and Connor McDavid have a few things in common, with two of those things being they were scouted at such a young age and they’ve both worn the ‘C’ for the Edmonton Oilers.

Before the coronavirus pandemic, the two got together for a special sit-down with GQ and GQ Sports, and The Great One recalled the first time he reached out to a young McDavid.

The two discussed things like the love for hockey in Edmonton, their favourite moments as an Oiler, what it’s like to win in Edmonton, their lives off the ice, their biggest regrets, and much more.
