Oilers' Connor McDavid: Voted best forward by NHLPA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid was voted the league's best forward by his peers in the NHLPA player poll.

McDavid put together another impressive 97-point campaign prior to the league hiatus, though he still trailed teammate Leon Draisaitl for the league lead. If the league is forced to jump right into the postseason or if the rest of the season gets outright canceled, the world-class center will miss the 100-point threshold for just the second time in his career, the other being his rookie campaign in which he racked up 48 points in 45 contests. McDavid received 68.35 percent of the vote followed by Sidney Crosby (14.93), Nathan McKinnon (6.65) and Nikita Kucherov (2.88).

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Doesn't miss beat in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (illness) scored a goal on four shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

McDavid sat out Monday's clash with Vegas but looked awfully healthy in his first game back Wednesday. He drove to the net and out-waited Winnipeg goaltender Connor Hellebuyck for his 34th goal of the season late in the second period to tie the game at 2-2. Despite missing a handful of time due to injuries and illness in 2019-20, McDavid has 97 points in 64 games and is closing in on the century mark for the fourth year in a row.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (illness) will rejoin the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Winnipeg, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

McDavid missed Monday's loss to Vegas due to an illness, but he was able to partake in an off-ice workout Tuesday and skated Wednesday morning, so he shouldn't have any limitations against the Jets. The superstar pivot will retake his spot in Edmonton's top six and first power-play unit.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Iffy against Winnipeg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (illness) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with Winnipeg, Jason Gregor of TSN 1260 reports.

McDavid didn't practice Tuesday, but he was able to participate in an off-ice workout, giving him a chance to return to action against the Jets. The superstar pivot's status for Wednesday's contest likely won't be confirmed until the Oilers take the ice for pregame warmups, so fantasy owners should plan accordingly.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (illness) was not on the ice for warmups and is expected to miss Monday's contest against Vegas, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

McDavid had been on a tear since returning from his quadriceps injury, racking up 15 points in the last eight contests. He was a game-time call Monday, so he'll likely be considered day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's tilt with Winnipeg.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Feeling ill, hopes to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (illness) is hoping he'll be good to go Monday versus Vegas, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

McDavid is feeling under the weather, but head coach Dave Tippett expects him to be on the ice for Monday's big game against the Pacific Division-leading Golden Knights. Look for confirmation of McDavid's status 30 minutes before puck drop.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Provides two power-play assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid had spectacular passes to set up Leon Draisaitl's two tallies in the contest. The 23-year-old center posted four goals and eight helpers in just eight outings in February -- he missed six games with a quadriceps injury. For the season, McDavid has 89 points (31 markers, 58 helpers), 197 shots and a minus-7 rating in 59 appearances.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Dishes trio of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid had three assists in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.

One of the helpers came on a Leon Draisaitl power-play goal. McDavid has six points in two games since returning from a quadriceps injury. The 23-year-old is up to 87 points (31 tallies, 56 helpers) and 188 shots through 57 contests. McDavid's third helper of the game was also the 300th of his career.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Three points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (quadriceps) scored a goal on six shots and dished two assists in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

McDavid is back, and he's scoring like he was never gone despite a six-game absence with the quadriceps injury. He's up to 84 points (31 goals, 53 assists), 186 shots and a minus-7 rating in 56 contests. Despite the lost time, the 23-year-old can still be considered likely to clear the 100-point threshold.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (quadriceps) will play in Sunday's game against the Kings, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

McDavid has missed the past six games, but he'll return to the lineup for this Pacific Division battle. The 23-year-old is expected to center Sam Gagner and Alex Chiasson on the second line, and McDavid will work on the power play as well. It's all-systems-go for the superstar pivot, who has racked up 81 points over 55 games.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: No-go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, McDavid (quadriceps) won't play Friday against the Wild, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Although he won't be available against Minnesota, McDavid will practice with the team Saturday and make the trip for Sunday's clash with the Kings, so he may only be forced to miss one more contest with his quad injury. Check back for another update on the 23-year-old superstar's status ahead of puck drop against L.A.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Will travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (quad) will make the Oilers' upcoming three-game west-coast trip but isn't guaranteed to take part in any games, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

McDavid took the ice with the team during practice Thursday, marking a major step in his recovery process. The road trip would fall into the early portion of his initial 2-to-3 week timetable for return, so it's likely a situation where the team will evaluate him on a daily basis. The three-game set fires up Sunday against the Kings and comes to a close Wednesday versus Vegas.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Rejoining team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (quadriceps) will rejoin the Oilers in Edmonton on Tuesday.

McDavid has been rehabbing his injury in Toronto, so although his return to Edmonton can certainly be viewed as a step in the right direction, his return to game action shouldn't necessarily be viewed as imminent. The superstar pivot is one week into the 2-3 week recovery timetable he was given Feb. 11, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Oilers release an updated timeline in the coming days.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers transferred McDavid (quad) to injured reserve Friday.

McDavid's placement on injured reserve comes as no surprise following the news earlier in the week suggesting he was headed for a multi-week absence. The star pivot's move to the list opened the door for the team to recall Markus Granlund from AHL Bakersfield.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Facing 2-3 week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid suffered a quadriceps injury that will sideline him for 2-3 weeks. General manager Ken Holland told reporters, "He's two to three weeks. That's a normal timeline for this injury. We're hoping less. It's not long-term."

McDavid's injury was originally classified as a charley horse but it appears to be a much more severe issue. The world-class center is in Toronto to undergo further evaluation and begin his rehab, per Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com. Without McDavid out of the lineup, the Oilers will lean heavily on Leon Draisaitl to keep the team in playoff contention.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Uncertain for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid (knee) is unsure if he'll play in Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.

McDavid skated during the first part of Monday's morning skate but left before the team went through line rushes, according to Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com. The center considers it a "charley horse." Considering McDavid sustained a serious knee injury at the end of last season, the Oilers may exercise caution. Leon Draisaitl worked as the No. 1 center in practice in McDavid's place Monday.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Getting checked for injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid was not available to the media after Saturday's 3-2 win over the Predators because he was being assessed by the medical staff, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.

McDavid appeared uncomfortable at points throughout the game, but he still skated 19:27 with an assist, three shots on goal and four PIM over 20 shifts. For now, this is likely a precautionary evaluation for the superstar. The Oilers' next game is Tuesday versus the Blackhawks -- his status should be confirmed prior to that contest. Per head coach Dave Tippett, McDavid has a bruise "on top of his knee," Spector reports. Tippett added the center is fine to the best of his knowledge, and the concern is not too serious.
