It was an announcement that we all knew was coming but it was still big news, Connor McDavid is the new captain of the Edmonton Oilers. He’s the youngest captain in NHL history and the 18 captain in franchise history (15th if you start counting in 1979, which you shouldn’t).

This morning Ryan Batty joined Adrienne Pan on CBC Radio's Edmonton AM to talk about the team’s decision to name McDavid captain. You can listen to the segment below.
