EDMONTON, AB - Oilers General Manager & President of Hockey Operations Ken Holland provided an update Thursday evening on the rehab status of Oilers captain Connor McDavid at a hot stove event with Oilers senior management at Rogers Place.

"He's doing good. I've seen him twice this week," Holland said. "Ten days ago, I drove to Toronto and spent two and a half or three hours with Connor having lunch and talking to him. Then this week on Monday, I was in Toronto for two days, Tuesday with the Competition Committee but I went up on Monday to spend time with Connor again and see where he works out. He's doing good. He's rehabbing.

Holland continued: "I expect to see him on the ice at training camp. [We're] working very closely with our medical team and the medical people that he's got in Toronto to make sure he's getting the best care possible. He's in great spirits. I really enjoyed meeting him. It was the first time that I'd really got to spend more than just shaking his hand in the hallway as a visiting team. He's doing great and looking forward to being on the ice at training camp."
