Oilers head coach Todd McLellan had updates on three players on Monday. 

On Connor McDavid, who did not skate and has been battling illness: 

"When he gets healthy he'll be back out there with his teammates."

On Anton Slepyshev, who did skate and rotated in on the fourth line. 

"I don't think he'll be playing tomorrow. We'll see how he is in Detroit. But he won't be available tomorrow."

On Andrej Sekera, who also took part in the full practice: 

"He's going in the right direction but, again, we're talking December. Once the calendar turns, we can start talking about how close he is. But nothing until December."
