Showing respect for your opponent is one of the most cherished traditions in hockey.

When your opponents offer praise, it demonstrates that they hold your skills in high esteem.

Connor McDavid has achieved a new personal best by scoring 124 points in 65 games.




McDavid Praises Matthews



Yet, he couldn't help but acknowledge Matthews' incredible shooting talent by stating:

"I'm not like one of those guys like Auston Matthews."

McDavid is one of the greatest players in NHL history and is likely to win the Rocket Richard trophy, but he still opted to throw the compliment Matthews' way.

By paying Matthews this compliment, McDavid is demonstrating humility and respect, qualities that are not always exhibited by the league's elite players.
