Gotta See It: Fan gets ‘creative’ for Connor McDavid autograph

Daren Millard talks with Connor McDavid about the Team North America roster and how he doesn’t think the Canada and USA hockey rivalry will affect the team.

What if you really wanted Connor McDavid‘s autograph but you were a dangerous height above him, with a railing and a security badge preventing you from handing the superstar his jersey?

Mmmm… drop.

During McDavid’s first voyage to Philadelphia, a fan at Wells Fargo Center lowered a No. 97 sweater to him at the arena’s loading dock, tossed down a Sharpie, got the Rookie of the Month’s signature and then reeled his prize back up more than 20 feet.

Sportsnet’s intrepid Gene Principe caught the action on his cellphone:

“They’re pretty creative sometimes,” McDavid told reporters Thursday. “That was one of the more creative ways to get an autograph I’ve seen.”
