There are some players in the NHL who may not have the most obvious connection to the game’s most famous instrument, the electric guitar.
The Edmonton Oilers’ Connor McDavid, a player with an affinity for the instrument, was born in Edmonton, but he is more than likely familiar with electric guitar as a kid.
The Edmonton Oilers were among the first teams to debut electric instruments in their inaugural season in 1996-97.
The Oilers won the 1997 Stanley Cup, and they were named to the 1995-96 All-Star Game, when McDavid was a rookie.
McDavid, now 23, has been playing the instrument for several years, and has also recorded a song called “Electric Drum Set.”
He is one of several players who have a connection to electric instruments through their own playing.
McDonald is one such player.
He’s also known as a big fan of electric drums, but McDavid has been known to use his drums on the ice.
He played the drums at the 2009 Sochi Olympics.
McKenzie Friesen is another of the most recognizable players with an electric drum set.
The Vancouver Canucks captain was a member of the 1990 World Cup of Hockey, and he was also a member the 1995 All-Stars.
In 2005, Frieson played the first electric guitar concerto ever recorded.
He has also had a few other notable connections to the instrument.
He was the drummer for the Boston Bruins for three years in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and in 2013, he was the head drum technician for the Edmonton Oilers.
Friesen played with the Boston Red Sox from 2006-2010, and with the Washington Capitals in 2013-14.
In 2017, Frysen played a concerto for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
In a recent interview with Hockey News, Fryingen talked about how he is excited about playing with the Edmonton organization, and that he thinks the team’s current lineup is the best in the league.
“I think they’re the best team in the world,” Friesent said.
“The best in hockey.
The best in any sport.”
McKeenan’s hockey blog is dedicated to highlighting the best of the best.
He also has a weekly podcast, which is also called The McKeenan Show, where he shares his thoughts on the NHL, sports, and everything in between.
