Nathan may not go first overall at this year’s NHL Entry Draft in New Jersey, but there is no doubt the 18-year-old center is an elite talent with a knack for winning.
This season MacKinnon led the Halifax Mooseheads to their first Quebec League title and also their first Memorial Cup championship, while earning MVP honors in the tournament. And MacKinnon doesn’t just deliver on the ice. He was also responsible for getting fellow top prospects Jonathan Drouin and Zach Fucale to the rink.
THN’s Ryan Kennedy caught up with MacKinnon to discuss his whirlwind season and get the inside scoop on his carpool buddies, Drouin and Fucale.
