Connor McDavid Embroiled In Cheating Controversy Over New Video

Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers is no stranger to making headlines.

The 25-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most talented players in the NHL and frequently lands in the news for his on-the-ice exploits.

This week, McDavid managed to find himself in the headlines for something other than his play.

In a now-viral video, a sheepish looking McDavid appears in what some believe looks like a compromising position.

With social media being what it is, fans understandably had some strong reactions to the clip:

That said, some eagle-eyed fans immediately came to McDavid’s defense:

Big picture, cheating has been a hot topic of conversation in the sports world over the past few weeks.

Between Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James having to fend off salacious rumors and Barcelona star Gerard Pique’s private DMs getting leaked – it has been one thing after another.

You can hardly blame folks for being suspicious.

Will McDavid come out and address the idle rumors and speculation one way or the other?

Time will tell.
