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.
McDavid scored a power-play goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 3.
McDavid's tally with eight seconds left in the second period gave the Oilers their first, and ultimately only, lead of the game. The superstar center has been in fine form with five goals and two helpers in the series so far.
McDavid posted a hat trick in Monday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks in Game 2.
Another game, another three points for McDavid, with the hat trick being the first of the superstar's postseason career. The 23-year-old is exploiting all the weaknesses in the Blackhawks' defense and penalty kill -- one of his goals Monday came on the power play. He's recorded six points in two games, a blazing start to the postseason.
McDavid scored a goal and added two assists, all on the power play, in a 6-4 loss to Chicago in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers on Saturday.
McDavid was dominant on the power play, but he was absolutely dominated in the faceoff circle. Jonathan Toews schooled the young stud, leaving him with just a handful of faceoff wins (4-of-12). McDavid came into Game 1 looking like he was on a mission and three points are great. But the players around him need to tighten their shin pads and play a better team game, or the Oil could be watching this tournament from home. Game 2 is Monday.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
