Edmonton Oilers rookie forward Connor McDavid said he feels good after taking contact in practice for the first time since fracturing his collarbone in early November but it is unknown if he will play in the first game after the All-Star break.

McDavid is practicing with Bakersfield of the American Hockey League but will not play any games for them.

"The whole point of this was kind of to take some contact," McDavid told ESPN.com. "I was cleared for contact right before the All-Star break. I didn't have a chance to do that with the guys [in Edmonton] so it's a good chance down here to take some bumps and really battle hard and test it out and see how it feels. … I've already taken a few [bumps] down here and I feel pretty good."

Lightning's Callahan: Stamkos contract no distraction

Wednesday, 01.27.2016 / 1:45 PM / News

Corey Long - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Callahan said Wednesday he fully supports Lightning captain Steven Stamkos but hasn't spoken with him about his contract situation.

Stamkos, who can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, was offered an eight-year, $68 million contract extension by the Lightning, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported Saturday.

Callahan said Stamkos has worked hard to keep his contract status from becoming a distraction this season.

"We haven't talked about it," Callahan said. "It's part of the business. It's something that's not really discussed among the players. Everybody has to go through it at some time or another, and obviously there's different players that it gets magnified. But he's been great. He's a pro about it. He's been in the League for a while, and I think he understands that. All the guys in here support him."
