McDavid (COVID) is skating with Auston Matthews ahead of the 2020-21 season, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

McDavid is back on the ice following his COVID-19 diagnosis back in October as he prepares for the upcoming season. This past year was the first time the world-class center failed to reach the 100-point threshold since his rookie campaign, when he played just 45 games. There is no reason to think McDavid can't produce at that level again in 2020-21, and he should be a near-lock for the No. 1 pick in redraft formats, though teammate Leon Draisaitl could also be in the mix.
