The Move: McDavid's 'filthiest nongoal you'll see'

Last night, top hockey prospect Connor McDavid and the Erie Otters visited First Niagara Center, and McDavid nearly lived up to all of the massive hype about him with one play.

The move was so cool that The News' Amy Moritz made it the lead to her story on McDavid's visit, which included a goal and three assists in an 8-4 victory over the Niagara Ice Dogs (here's our PHOTO GALLERY from the game).

Edwards tweeted it at ESPN hockey lover John Buccigross, who retweeted.
