How’s Connor McDavid?

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Connor McDavid has not had any setbacks in his recovery from a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and no one is saying that his return to the Edmonton Oilers will be in November or December.

That’s the good news.

Any major knee injury is a six-month rehabilitation project, however, and the Edmonton Oilers captain ran into that goalpost in Calgary on April 6. With the Oilers’ season opener set for Oct. 2 versus the Vancouver Canucks — inside six months from the date of the injury — there are no promises that McDavid will be taking the opening faceoff.

“He tore his PCL,” agent Jeff Jackson told Sportsnet.ca on Tuesday.

“For a guy like him, who relies so much on his skating his edgework, cutting back … You don’t want to have anything go wrong when you’re rehabbing. So it’s been very meticulous, very carefully orchestrated, the progression. But he’s doing really well.
