Connor McDavid won’t turn 20 until January, but the prospective Edmonton Oilers captain doesn’t want anyone thinking of him as a teenager anymore.

The bar is already set incredibly high for the 19-year-old this season and while he wouldn’t divulge details on personal goals, McDavid did offer some insight into his own expectations for his sophomore campaign.

"I just want to go in and have a good (training) camp and show everyone that I’m not some 18-year-old kid anymore," said McDavid on Monday morning at the annual Biosteel Camp.

McDavid will first represent Team North America at the World Cup next month and then try to eclipse the dizzying performance he put on last year for Edmonton. Though he missed 37 games due to a fractured clavicle, McDavid put up 48 points in 45 games for a fourth-place finish in the rookie scoring race.

He performed on a level not seen from an 18-year-old since Sidney Crosby, also a much-hyped prospect who posted 102 points in his debut season for the Penguins.
