As expected, Connor McDavid rejoined the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.
McDavid had three assists in three games with Team North America during the World Cup. Now that he's back with the Oilers, he skated alongside Milan Lucic and Jordan Eberle. It wouldn't be shocking to see that trio on the ice together in Edmonton's season opener as well. Sep 28 - 5:03 AM

Connor McDavid will report to Oilers camp on Tuesday.

McDavid shone at the World Cup where his speed and moves had his opponents on their heels the whole game. McDavid is a star and it would not surprise us at Rotoworld if he won the scoring title if he can remain healthy. Look for a 90-plus point season from the superstar who doesn't turn 20 until January 13.

Connor McDavid will serve as the captain for Team North America at the World Cup of Hockey.

The 19-year-old phenom was expected to receive the honor and he could be the next captain of the Edmonton Oilers as well. Sean Couturier and Aaron Ekblad will be the alternates for the tournament.

Connor McDavid believes Team North America can surprise at the World Cup.

Team North America will be made up of young players from around the league, but McDavid still thinks they have a chance to do some damage in the tournament. "It's exciting," McDavid said. "There are a lot of good young players that have a lot of speed and skill. I think we have the ability to surprise some teams. "We haven't been all together yet. But in talking with some of the guys, I think everyone has a quiet confidence. At the same time, I think we all understand we're the young bucks, the young guys, and nobody is really expecting too much from us. We'll see how it goes, but I think everyone is excited."

Connor McDavid would be honored if he ended up being named the captain of the Edmonton Oilers.

"Obviously. If I was ever the captain at any point I think it would be one of the greatest honors and one of the accomplishments that I would definitely take the most seriously," McDavid told the Toronto Sun. "I don't want to comment on it too much, but obviously it would be an unbelievable feeling." Edmonton may got without a captain in 2016-17, but it probably won't be long before McDavid is wearing the "C."

Connor McDavid was shocked to hear that Taylor Hall had been traded.

Hall had taken McDavid under his wing and the emerging star lived under Hall's roof last season. "I want to express thanks for all that he’s done for me because he’s done so much," McDavid said. "I’ll never really know how I can repay him, or if I’ll ever be able to, for what he’s done for me this year. He’s a guy who took me under his wing right away. It’s hard to explain how much that means to me." With Taylor Hall gone, the Oilers could be looking for McDavid to take on more of a leadership role despite his age. That said, the Oilers could be adding veterans to fill that leadership void. In particular, there's a lot of speculation that the Oilers will sign Milan Lucic.

Connor McDavid scored the game-winning goal in Canada's 2-0 win over Finland in the Gold Medal Game at the World Hockey Championship.

This is the first time that Canada's won back-to-back gold medals at the worlds since 2003-2004. At 19-years-old, McDavid becomes the youngest player ever to win gold at the U18 World Championship, the World Junior Championship and the World Championship. McDavid finished the tournament with just one goal, but it couldn't have been any bigger. You can watch the goal by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

Connor McDavid has been named a finalist for the Calder Trophy.

McDavid missed a good chunk of the year because of a clavicle injury, but he still managed to post an impressive 16 goals and 48 points in 45 games. The 19-year-old may not have put up the highest amount of points for rookies in 2015-16, but his point-per-game pace will surely put him in contention for the award.

Connor McDavid will be glad to be on the other side of the draft lottery equation this season.

"It was so stressful, not just for myself but for my family," McDavid recalls. "It’s going to be so different for me this year, rooting for my own team to win the lottery instead of sitting down waiting to find out how my life is going to be impacted in so many different directions." With the odds extremely high that McDavid would go first overall, he was essentially waiting for an envelope to determine what city and organization he would live and work in for years to come. This year Auston Matthews, the presumptive first overall pick, is going through that process and McDavid feels for him. Of course, if Matthews goes to Edmonton there will be no shortage of other first overall picks that will be able to relate with him.

Connor McDavid will play for Canada in the 2016 World Championships.

It will give McDavid a chance to extend his campaign after he was limited to 45 games due to a broken collarbone. "There wasn’t much to play for late in the season but I’m definitely excited to play for a championship whether that’s in the worlds or the World Cup (playing for Team North America in September). It’ll be fun," McDavid said. He had 16 goals and 48 points in his rookie campaign.

Apr 1 - 12:24 PM

Connor McDavid scored his 15th of the season to stretch his points streak to seven games.

The NHL's best rookie likely won't win the Calder as he sat out 37 games with a broken clavicle but don't be fooled by the vote because McDavid is heads and shoulders above anyone else including Artem Panarin and Jack Eichel. McDavid has 45 points in 41 games as he also chipped in with an assist. McDavid should be a top five pick next season in most hockey pools.
