Edmonton Oilers general manager Ken Holland expects Connor McDavid to be ready for the start of training camp after suffering a knee injury in the team's regular-season finale in April.

"He's doing good," Holland said, according to the team. "I've seen him twice this week ... he's rehabbing.

"I expect to see him on the ice at training camp. 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."

McDavid injured his posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) after crashing into the post at nearly full speed but didn't require surgery.

The 22-year-old is coming off a career 116-point season, and his 324 points over the last three campaigns leads all players.

Two big and obvious holes in Edmonton Oilers roster. Can Ken Holland fill them?.
This is the Edmonton Oilers roster as the team heads into the key moment of the off-season: It’s got two big and obvious holes in it, with the team needing a right winger who can slot into the Top 6 forwards and a goalie who can challenge Mikko Koskinen for the top job. This does not sound like an impossible task for Holland, though former Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli came up short last year, with only one of his forward bets, Alex Chiassson, paying off, and Tobias Rieder, Drake Caggiula, Jesse Puljujarvi, Milan Lucic, Kyle Brodziak, Ryan Strome, Ryan Spooner and especially Milan Lucic failing to pay. Sam Gagner, Colby Cave and Ty Rattie were somewhere in the middle.
