Former Avs player compares Nathan MacKinnon to Michael Jordan

Published August 3, 2021 at 9:53 PM

While we have known for quite some time that Colorado Avalanche superstar Nathan MacKinnon is an absolute beast on the ice, most may not know how meticulous and demanding he is as a leader in practice and off the ice as well.

For most competitors, the desire to win rises above everything else, which makes it much more of a priority for a true competitor to eat clean, work hard and to not waste time and energy in practice covering up the mistakes of others - instead, holding them accountable and working hard to help teammates improve as well.

During an interview with a Russian media outlet, former Avs defenseman Nikita Zadorov provided a bit of his insight into what MacKinnon does for himself to ensure optimal performance every night and how much he demands from his teammates both in games, at practice and away from the rink.

Per Zadorov, MacKinnon shells out hundreds of thousands of dollars per season on a personal dietician, a live-in doctor/physiotherapist and a chef to prepare all of his meals.
