Connor McDavid’s run-in with Oilers fans became the most awkward picture ever

Connor McDavid looks wonderfully uncomfortable.

Connor McDavid is a huge NHL star.

Well, burgeoning. He’s just 20 years old but could be the MVP this season. And his Edmonton Oilers are back in the playoffs after a decade-long absence!

So naturally, fans want pictures with him. It seems like McDavid doesn’t:

One can imagine how this played out:

Jimmy: “Can you take a picture with my wife and me?”

Connor, smiling: “Sure!”

Jimmy: “Great!”

[Jimmy & Rosalina swiftly obliterate Connor’s personal bubble]


When Edmonton makes a statue of McDavid one day, please let it be of this moment.
