Sportsman of the Week Ending 5/22/2022


The National Hockey League Stanley Cup Playoffs hits full stride after an exciting opening round, the Top eight teams are battling for a spot in their Conference Finals.  One of the more intriguing battles is the "Battle for Alberta" in which the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames are battling to be the only Canadian team left in the playoffs.  The familiar foes have lit the lamp at a near unprecedented rate with 36 goals scored in the first four games.  Nobody was a bigger force for either team than the Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid.  McDavid tallied 9 points in the first three games, with 2 goals and 7 assists while skating to a +6 Plus/Minus.  The 25-year-old former number one overall draft pick has cemented himself among the elite in the league.  Can he lead the Oilers to their first title since 1990, and the first Canadian team championship since the Montreal Canadiens championship in 1993?  Stay tuned, but he is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
