Connor McDavid was drafted on Thursday.

Though the Erie Otters star isn't eligible for the NHL Draft until 2015, when the 17-year-old Toronto native is projected to be the top pick, McDavid was drafted 77th overall in the annual KHL draft by Croatian team Medvescak Zagreb.

Conceivably, McDavid could forgo his final season in the OHL next year and sign with Medvescak, but that would seriously compromise McDavid's NHL draft stock rendering such a move beyond unlikely.

McDavid  finished fourth in the OHL in points with 21 goals and 78 assists.
