With the Condors, he’s scored six goals and nine assists in 15 games.

McDavid, meanwhile, was injured last weekend in a game against the Nashville Predators after a tough luck play that saw him crash into the end boards. He is expected to miss two-to-three weeks without their captain. So far, the Oilers have gone 1-1 with McDavid out of the lineup.
