McDavid could be ready to play by Dec. 21: report

Erie Otters center Connor McDavid, who has been out of the lineup since sustaining a right hand injury in a fight last month, could return to action on Dec. 21, according to the Toronto Sun.

The Dec. 21 return would give McDavid an opportunity to prepare for the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship that is scheduled to begin five days later at Bell Centre in Montreal.

"He is on track and he is probably a little bit ahead of where everyone thought he would be," Hockey Canada vice-president of hockey operations Scott Salmond told the paper. "I think coming out of Toronto he will be ready to practice full on and we are probably targeting around the 21st for his first exhibition game, which would be great."

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
