Connor McDavid took to the ice on Friday ahead of his impending return, but he's now revealed that it won't take place on Friday night against Arizona.

After missing the last Oilers game against the Vegas Golden Knights (a dominant 5-1 victory), many assumed that Connor McDavid would be returning soon, especially after looking great on the ice ahead of practice. While he's not worried about his injury, the Oilers captain has revealed a timetable for his return.
McDavid says he's not likely to go tonight. Said it was a bit of a nagging injury as well as something he tweaked vs Calgary, but he expects to be fully healed up by playoffs. Didn't commit to tomorrow vs Van either. Skated hard for over 30 mins today.

As stated, McDavid believes he will be ready to go for game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman adding that it is just an aggravation of an old injury, and is nothing to worry about according to the Oilers captain.
McDavid added it was an aggravation of a previous issue — but isn't concerned it will be a continuing problem

As long as he's healthy to go for the Oilers in game one, the team should remain optimistic, and while he may fall just one assist short of his chase for 100, the goal is much bigger than that, and he's clearly focused on a deep Cup run.
