McDavid recorded an assist and three hits in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Canadiens. He also won all seven of his faceoffs. Obviously, McDavid is much more well-known for his scoring. He's already posted five points and 16 shots on net through three games. The 24-year-old had gone 14-for-30 at the dot entering Saturday, and his career faceoff rate stood at 44.1 percent. Don't expect the dominance on the draws to continue -- he'll more than make up for it on the scoresheet.
McDavid netted a hat trick on nine shots and added an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks. That's more like it. McDavid was held pointless in Wednesday's season opener, but he came back with a vengeance Thursday. It's the 13th four-point game of his already illustrious career. Fantasy managers don't necessarily expect this on a nightly basis, but it's well known the 24-year-old superstar can sometimes win a game all by himself. He'll turn his attention to the Canadiens on Saturday and Monday.
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.
The Oilers announced that McDavid (illness) tested positive to COVID-19 and is currently self-quarantining. So far, it sounds like Edmonton's captain has experienced very mild symptoms, which is a great sign. McDavid will likely self-quarantine until he's able to provide a negative test result. Barring a drastic change, this shouldn't affect his status for next season.
McDavid supplied two assists and four hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 4. McDavid had a hand in both of the Oilers' goals Friday, but for the third time in four games, it wasn't enough. McDavid added five tallies and four helpers in the playoffs to his 34-goal, 97-point campaign in the regular season. It's a virtual lock that the 23-year-old forward will be a top-three pick in fantasy drafts for season-long formats in 2020-21.
