Hockey Writer Calls Connor McDavid "Personality-Deficient"

The tradition behind the hat-trick is said to have began in Montreal in the 1950's. When a player scores 3 goals in a game, fans throw their hats onto the ice. There are NHL employees in the stands who are responsible for throwing hats on the ice for a hat-trick. Connor McDavid is not at all fond of this idea and has been called "personality-deficient" as a result.

McDavid scored a hat-trick in game 2 against the Chicago Blackhawks. It was quite awkward watching arena staff throw hats on the ice, but 2020 has been an awkward year.

Here is what McDavid had to say about hats being thrown on the ice in an arena without fans. Does this make him personality-deficient or is this truly not practical or exciting?
