TORONTO — Connor McDavid didn't want to answer any questions about his knee. The brace hugging the superstar's left leg and an accompanying limp said enough.

Speaking at a promotional event Tuesday morning, the Edmonton Oilers captain declined to discuss his recovery from the injury suffered April 6 after he crashed into a goal post during the team's regular-season finale against the Calgary Flames.

X-rays came back negative, but the results of a subsequent MRI found a small tear in the centre's posterior cruciate ligament.

The Oilers announced at the time McDavid wouldn't require surgery, but the brace on the two-time Art Ross Trophy winner's knee was clearly visible under his black pants Tuesday, appearing to stretch from halfway up his calf to the mid-point of his thigh.

The 22-year-old, who was on hand as an ambassador for Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities to surprise a group of kids at a park in Toronto's north end, wouldn't say how rehabilitation has been going or if he's been on the ice.

"We're here just to celebrate Jumpstart and the opening of the new playground," said McDavid, who initially thought he'd broken his leg in the moments following the collision. "That's all I'm focused on (today)."

The injury wrapped up a miserable 2018-19 for the Oilers, one that saw them fire head coach Todd McLellan in November before handing general manager Peter Chiarelli his walking papers in January.

Edmonton finished 11 points back of the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference as the franchise missed the playoffs for the third time in McDavid's four campaigns in Edmonton.

The keys to the Jets' offseason

The keys to the Jets' offseason With the postseason down to just two teams, most squads are now well into their offseason planning. What storylines lie ahead around the league in what is shaping up to be a likely busy NHL offseason? Next up in our offseason keys series is a look at the Winnipeg Jets. Expectations were high for Winnipeg after making it to the Western Conference Final in 2018. Most of the team was returning, and then GM Kevin Cheveldayoff added Kevin Hayes at the trade deadline with the hopes that he’d have an impact like Paul Stastny did the year before. Unfortunately for the Jets, they didn’t fare as well in the postseason this time around as they were ousted by St.

Speaking at a promotional event Tuesday morning, the Edmonton Oilers captain declined to discuss his recovery from the injury he suffered April 6.

Edmonton Oilers ’ Connor McDavid , right McDavid left his team’s season finale with a left leg injury after a hard collision with the net McDavid ’s recovery has been an ongoing story for the Oilers . Two weeks ago, general manager Ken Holland indicated McDavid might not play in the pre-season at all.

The Newmarket, Ont., product did his part for a top-heavy roster, winding up second in league scoring with 116 points (41 goals, 75 assists), but it wasn't nearly enough for a club that has failed to reach the post-season 12 of the last 13 springs.

"There was a lot of moving parts, a lot of things going on," said McDavid, who's signed through 2025-26 with an annual salary cap hit of US$12.5 million. "Fire a coach, fire a GM — that's a lot of change for one season.

"It was an emotional ride, and I'm looking forward to a little stability."

McDavid and the Oilers hope that stability will come in the form of two new hires — GM Ken Holland and head coach Dave Tippett. Holland and McDavid, who won the Hart Trophy in 2016-17 as league MVP, have exchanged texts and plan to meet in person soon, while Tippett spoke briefly over the phone with his new meal ticket.

Holland joined Edmonton after a long career in Detroit, where he helped guide the Red Wings to Stanley Cup victories in 1998, 2002 and 2008 as GM.

Pending restricted free agent Jesse Puljujarvi plans to play in NHL next season

Pending restricted free agent Jesse Puljujarvi plans to play in NHL next season Even with interest from the KHL, Jesse Puljujarvi seems focused on playing in the NHL next season. Where he’ll do that though is still up in the air, as several reports have come out explaining that a trade may be the best outcome. Now the player himself admits that is a strong possibility, as Puljujarvi spoke to Finnish outlet Iltalehti and explained he may be wearing a different jersey next year. He also revealed that he’s back skating after the hip surgery that ended his 2018-19 season prematurely. Puljujarvi, 21, was the Oilers’ top pick in 2016 going fourth overall after Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine and Pierre-Luc Dubois.

Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid is detailing in a documentary his recovery and rehab process from the major knee injury he sustained " Connor McDavid made the decision, he wanted to rehab this," former Maple Leaf and current fitness trainer Gary Roberts said in the trailer for the

"He comes with lots of experience (and) is a guy that's been wildly successful," McDavid said. "I'm really happy with that and really looking forward to working with him."

Tippett, meanwhile, has coached nearly 1,200 combined regular-season and playoff games in the NHL with Dallas and Phoenix/Arizona. He worked previously with McDavid as an assistant for Team North America at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey and spent the last year as a senior adviser to Seattle's expansion franchise.

"He's been around for a long time and has had lots of success and coached different styles of hockey — coached offensive, coached defensive," McDavid said. "He has all the tools."

Speaking at the NHL's annual scouting combine in Buffalo, N.Y., over the weekend, Holland said he hopes McDavid is excited about the future in Edmonton.

"We all want to win, and we're all hopeful we can put something together here and get more competitive," said Holland, who owns the eighth pick at the upcoming draft in Vancouver. "At the end of the day you've got to have hope.

"You've got to have hope and belief that you're going to be good."

McDavid and Leon Draisaitl (105 points in 2018-19) give the Oilers an impressive 1-2 punch after finishing second and fourth in scoring last season, but it's no secret there are significant holes that need to be filled pretty much everywhere else.

"Lucky it's not my job to decide that," McDavid said in sidestepping a query about what needs fixing. "There's lots of people higher up that figure that stuff out.

"I've just got to worry about playing."

But how patient is McDavid willing to be with the rebuild in Edmonton, one that could take a lot more than one season?

"That's not a question I'm going to answer."

Just like the ones about his injured knee.
