Oilers' McDavid recovering but no timetable for return

TORONTO -- Edmonton Oilers rookie center Connor McDavid said he is recovering better than expected from a broken left clavicle but is not sure when he'll be able to return to the ice.

McDavid said he no longer feels pain from the injury, which occurred when he crashed into the end boards Nov. 3 against the Philadelphia Flyers. He was expected to miss four months.

"Obviously it is healing well and I feel like it is a little ahead of schedule," McDavid said. "It feels good and I'm going to start doing everything, but at the end of the day I've got to let it heal."

McDavid said he is not skating yet and does not know when he'll be able to play again.

MacInnis family tradition stays strong with Kitchener

Ryan MacInnis celebrated his milestone games last weekend in fine fashion.

MacInnis, 19 and in his third season with Kitchener of the Ontario Hockey League, had one goal and three assists in wins against Sarnia and Sault Ste. Marie.

The games were his 157th and 158th in the OHL. They matched and surpassed his father, Hockey Hall of Fame member Al MacInnis, who played for Kitchener from 1980-83.

"I remember the first time I visited Kitchener with him," said Ryan MacInnis, recalling the banner-raising ceremony to honor his father in November 2008. "I was only 12. Of course, I didn't know I was going to play here back then. But it's been pretty cool."

Al MacInnis' banner hangs from the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium rafters alongside ones honoring other legends like Scott Stevens, Paul Coffey, Bill Barber and Larry Robinson. There are photos of the older MacInnis in action on the concourse of the building and there is the 1982-83 team photo, when he was part of Kitchener's first Memorial Cup championship team.

It's not only cool for Ryan, a 2014 second-round pick (No. 43) of the Arizona Coyotes, but for his father too. Al MacInnis, in his role as father and as senior adviser to St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong, makes a couple of monthly visits to watch his son play for his old junior team.

Fantasy All-Access: Atkinson, Rask worth watching

Sean McCullen - Staff Writer

Every Monday, staff writer Sean McCullen identifies potential waiver-wire pickups and points out lineup moves and schedule impacts for fantasy hockey.

No American-born NHL player has had a point streak as long as the 19-game run Patrick Kane will bring into the Chicago Blackhawks' game against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.

He set the record Saturday with a first-period goal against the Los Angeles Kings, passing Eddie Olczyk (Toronto Maple Leafs, 1989-90) and Phil Kessel (Boston Bruins, 2008-09), who each had an 18-game streak. Kane also had an assist in the second period.

Kane has 11 goals and 20 assists during his streak, which began Oct. 17, and he is the runaway most valuable player of fantasy hockey so far.

Although the players included in this week’s Waiver-Wire Watch likely won't produce at Kane's level, each has been on an impressive recent run and is worth considering as a fill-in for an injured or slumping player.

NEW YORKDallas Stars left wing Jamie Benn, Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and Montreal Canadiens center Alex Galchenyuk have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Nov. 29.

The 26-year-old Victoria, B.C., native and reigning Art Ross Trophy winner paces the NHL with 18 goals and ranks second with 35 points in 24 outings this season, including 8-6—14 during an eight-game point streak and 6-2—8 during a four-game goal streak.
