Connor McDavid is healing ahead of schedule and may return to the Oilers in mid-to-late January, according to Mark Spector.
McDavid was originally expected to need until March to heal from his broken clavicle, but Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli confirmed the report on Thursday. "He’s been in the pool, been lifting weights. There are no soft tissue injuries, which is important," Chiarelli noted. "When you get a break like that, oftentimes there is accompanying soft tissue injuries. That slows down the recovery." McDavid had five goals and 12 points in 15 games prior to the injury, and had potted a point in 10 of those games including seven straight. Nov 27 - 12:16 AM

Connor McDavid spoke to the media Monday for the first time since he suffered a broken clavicle.

"I still haven't been reevaluated by the doctor since surgery," McDavid said. "I'm supposed to go see the doctor today and get some test done, then I'll see him again tomorrow and I'll have a better idea of all that tomorrow." The rookie sensation was injured back on Nov. 3 against Philadelphia.

Connor McDavid (broken clavicle) is out for at least two months.

That would put McDavid's best-case scenario return at early January. After entering the league amid tremendous hype, he scored five goals and 12 points in his first 13 games. While this injury is a terrible setback, we think he'll go back to being a major point producer once he's healthy.

Don Cherry on Coach's Corner said that the hit on Connor McDavid which broke his clavicle, was deliberate.

Cherry is the E.F. Hutton of hockey in that when he talks, people listen. "They (Flyers defensemen Brandon Manning and Michael Del Zotto) should have let up a little, you'll see as (McDavid's) going down they give him a little shot," Cherry said. "(He) doesn't have a chance, that's all I got to say. Look at that." That should be the talk around the water cooler on Monday. In other McDavid news, he had surgery and there was no shoulder separation so that's good news. He is out indefinitely.

The Edmonton Oilers have placed Connor McDavid (broken clavicle) on the injured reserve list.

This is no surprise as the wunderkid could be out three to four months after going into the boards hard Tuesday. He was the leading candidate for the Calder Trophy and he could still win if he misses only three months. He is quite a hockey player and comparing him to the NHL greats may not be too early.

Pittsburgh GM Jimmy Rutherford loved the fact that Connor McDavid has a high threshold for pain.

McDavid broke his clavicle on Tuesday when he went into the boards but he got up after a few seconds and just went to the bench where he stayed until the end of the period. "What was so impressive was he didn’t lay on the ice. He wasn’t whining," Rutherford said. He held his shoulder a bit and actually picked up his stick, then he went and sat on the bench. If that doesn’t tell you something about a guy, apart from his ability."

Connor McDavid is expected to have surgery Wednesday to repair a broken clavicle.

He is out indefinitely and GM Peter Chiarelli said that McDavid will miss "months" due to the ailment. McDavid was injured Tuesday night against Philadelphia when he crashed into the end boards.

Connor McDavid's upper body injury is going to be long-term.

Oiler's coach Todd McLellan confirmed what we all feared after the game. He called it an "upper-body" injury but if you saw the incident it was pretty clear it was a shoulder injury. Needless to say, its rotten news for the Oilers, fantasy owners and the entire NHL.

Connor McDavid exited Tuesday's game against the Flyers because of a left shoulder injury.

The Oilers have already announced that he won't return to the game, and some reports have surfaced saying that he left the arena in a sling. McDavid got tangled up with Brandon Manning and Michael Del Zotto in the Flyers' zone before crashing into the boards awkwardly. Click on the link below to watch the replay of the injury.

Connor McDavid has been tabbed as the NHL Rookie of the Month for October.

He led all first-year players with 12 points in 12 games. The 18-year-old had a bit of a slow start before he went on a seven-game scoring streak. McDavid faced some strong competition for the honor with Max Domi, Artemi Panarin, Nikolaj Ehlers and Colton Parayko enjoying strong opening months of their careers as well.
Nov 2 - 3:04 PM

Connor McDavid's point streak ended at seven games.

McDavid was held off of the scoresheet on Saturday. He now has five goals and 12 points in 12 games. We'll have to see if the end of this point streak leads to him cooling down significantly, but we're optimistic about the chances of him bouncing back relatively quickly.
Nov 2 - 8:28 AM

Thanks to a pair of assists in Thursday's 4-3 win over Montreal, Connor McDavid's point streak has reached seven games.

After out-muscling PK Subban and then using his quick hands to evade Andrei Markov, McDavid was able to spring Benoit Pouliot for a one-on-none breakaway from the offensive blue line inward. Pouliot rang true, tying the game at three mid-way through the third. For McDavid it was another shining example of how special he can be. He now has seven assists and 12 points in 11 games to kick off his career.
Oct 30 - 12:25 AM

Connor McDavid is on a six-game point streak.

McDavid kept it alive by registering an assist against Minnesota on Tuesday. That brings him up to five goals and 10 points in 10 games. For as much hype as there was surrounding him going into the season, it seems fair to say that he has lived up to those high expectations thus far.
Oct 28 - 10:25 AM

Connor McDavid extended his point streak to five games with an assist in 3-2 loss to the Kings on Sunday.

McDavid seems to have really found his groove with eight points in his last five games. Jonathan Quick robbed him of a goal with less than five seconds to play with a remarkable save. We have only begun to scratch the surface of McDavid’s tremendous offensive upside. If you’re lucky enough to have him in dynasty leagues, don’t let go of him. The Oilers are set up for a very long time with him. Benoit Pouliot and Taylor Hall were the goal scorers for the Oilers.

Connor McDavid's goal and assist Friday pushed him to the top of the rookie scoring race.

Well that didn't take long. McDavid is tied with Max Domi and Artemi Panarin with eight points but leads the way since he has five goals while Domi has three and Panarin two. McDavid has a four game points streak in which he has four goals and seven points. There is no need to tell everyone that he is already turning into a star in the NHL at the tender age of 18.
