Nathan MacKinnon linemates with hometown idol Sidney Crosby at 2015 IIHF Worlds

PRAGUE, Czech Republic — When you enter the arena in Cole Harbour, N.S., one of the first things you see is the massive glassed-in display dedicated to its most famous native son.

Nathan MacKinnon walked by Sidney Crosby’s display case every time he carried his hockey bag into the rink as a minor hockey player.

“Yeah, that’s been there a long time. It’s been there ever since he made the NHL. About 10 years now,” said the 19-year-old MacKinnon, the second superstar in a decade produced by the community of 25,161.

“I used to stop and stare in there almost every day and look at all Sid’s stuff and dream,” he said.

“It wasn’t just because Sid was from the same hometown. It was because I heard so many good things about him.

“It’s a small town. Things get around. Good things and bad things. But it was all good things you heard about Sid. He wasn’t just a good role model for me and every other kid in Cole Harbour, I think he’s been one for every kid across Canada.”

Friday MacKinnon opened the IIHF World Championship playing on the same line and producing three points with him in Canada’s 6-1 win over Latvia.

“It’s cool,” he said after practice and team photo here Saturday.

“It’s funny how it’s worked out. I was such a huge fan. I idolized him. I wanted his picture and autograph and all his stuff and that sort of thing. Now I’m not just playing with him at the world championships I’m on the same line with him. It’s a pretty cool experience.

“I look at differently now, being in the NHL myself now, being sort of friends with him now and skating during the off-season with him and everything. We’re actually now pretty close. We talk a lot. But he’s still my role model from the same hometown.”

Drafted No. 1 overall by the Colorado Avalanche, MacKinnon won the Calder Trophy as the rookie of the year in the NHL last year. He scored 24 goals and produced 63 points.

This year, missing 18 games with injures, his goal total dropped to 14 and his point total to 38.

Last year as an 18-year-old in the tournament, MacKinnon managed a goal and four points for the eight games Canada played in Minsk in finishing fourth. If he gets an assist Sunday against Germany, he’ll have matched that on opening weekend.

He had a goal and two assists against Latvia.

Crosby became the youngest player to lead the tournament in scoring in his only previous appearance as an NHL rookie in 2006 with eight goals and eight assists. He had a goal and an assist versus Latvia back then and a goal and an assist against Latvia Friday, although this goal was his first ever since he turned pro on a penalty shot.

While MacKinnon recorded 200 points in 50 games as an atom aged player and 110 and 145 points as a bantam, he really wasn’t on Crosby’s radar playing in Pittsburgh.

“It wasn’t until a little bit later. It really wasn’t until his first year of junior,” said the captain, who had no clue about the kid’s future when he was signing autographs for him.

Unlike Crosby, who played his junior hockey for Rimouski, MacKinnon was able to stay at home and play in Halifax for the Mooseheads.

“I heard a few things about him, but I didn’t get to know him until junior. That’s when I started to skate with him and stuff and could tell he had a lot of skill and I could see he had a great attitude.

“To end up playing on the same line as him here at the world championship, is fun.

“Looking back there were guys in the NHL I looked up to that were good role models, guys you wanted to follow in their footsteps so I feel good that I was able to do that for him a little bit. I think the fact we’re both from Cole Harbour and playing on the same line together is kind of unique so I’m trying to have fun with it.

“I didn’t suggest the line or anything. I was with Ryan O’Reilly and Jason Spezza at first and then showed up in Prague from Vienna and we were on the same line.

“Hopefully I can help him a little bit and he’s going to push me, too. He’s fast and full of energy so maybe that can help, too.”

PRAGUE, Czech Republic — Taylor Hall had a hat trick to lead Canada in a 10-0 rout of Germany on Sunday at the world hockey championship.

Cody Eakin had a pair of goals for Canada (2-0), while Aaron Ekblad, Claude Giroux, Tyler Ennis, Sidney Crosby and Matt Duchene also scored. Martin Jones earned the shutout with 18 saves.

Dennis Endras and Danny Aus den Birken split time in net for Germany (1-1).

Crosby corralled a bouncing pass from Ryan O’Reilly and put the puck over the right shoulder of Endras at the 11:58 mark of the first period for a 1-0 lead.

Just 23 seconds later, Hall gave Canada a 2-0 lead, taking a feed from Edmonton Oilers teammate Jordan Eberle from behind the net and snapping it past Endras.

O'Reilly earned his second assist of the game, stealing the puck behind Germany's goal-line and passing it out to Eakin, who tapped the puck in to the net for a 3-0 lead.

Eakin's backhand off a rebound for his second goal in two minutes 21 seconds for a 4-0 lead heading to the first intermission.

Duchene passed back to Hall on a 3-on-2 breakaway then crashed the net, screening Endras as Hall's shot went into the German net early in the second period.

Ekblad chased Endras from the net, sweeping in unmarked from the blue-line to one-time a pass from Jake Muzzin for a 6-0 Canadian lead.

Giroux helped Canada pile on, re-directing a goal-line pass.

Giroux set up a goal a little over seven minutes later, feeding Ennis in the slot. Again, Germany's weak centre defence left Ennis virtually unmolested as he swatted the puck in.

Hall's third of the game capped a five-goal second period. Duchene sent a cross-ice pass to Hall, who slammed it past Aus den Birken.

Duchene was awarded a penalty shot in the third period and made no mistake for a 10-0 lead.

I wonder how much of Hall's great play is based on the fact that the new Oiler Management is expected to trade one or more of their underperforming first round draft picks and he doesn't want to be "that guy". :lol:

Or he could hope to get traded to Montreal so they could have another underperforming forward.

Wow, Canucks got exactly 6 more games than the Oilers this season and thoroughly embrassed by the Flames, Way to Go !!! :lol:

:P Man you guys are really going to be sour once the Dynasty engages.

The bald headed guy already said he's not trading any of the core, he as some good prospects and 7 picks in the first 3 rounds. We'll see if he can make another Chara quality deal with those assets.

Sorry I'm not a Canucks fan but if the bald guy was smart he'd sell off one of his current high priced assets for some depth and try and keep his picks because, the culture of losing would appear to be firmly ingrained in those other 3 #1 picks. So, expecting the drafting of McDavid to fix all the issues borders on delusional especially considering the Oilers have been doing that same thing over and over again and expecting different results. :wink:


So I guess we'll have to wait and see if the bald guy can pull of a Chara like deal or if it's gonna be more like a Sequin deal because, if he can't the sure thing Dynasty is gonna be alot farther off than you Oiler fans think.
