Connor McDavid Could Be Ready For Opening Night

from Paul Gazzola of EdmontonOilers.com,

On Wednesday, Oilers President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Ken Holland, as well as Head Coach Dave Tippett, updated the status of Captain Connor McDavid, who suffered a torn PCL in the final game of the 2018-19 season and has been recovering since.

"First off, the doctors are making the final decision," started Holland, speaking before a crowd of reporters outside the Oilers Dressing Room.

McDavid said he would like to suit up for a pre-season match before the '19-20 regular campaign begins but is keeping that decision up to the medical staff.

"Secondly, we're going to err on the side of caution but obviously if the doctors sign off and Connor wants to play, then we'll play him in the pre-season," Holland continued.
