NEWS

Covers Preview - Connor McDavid is trying to take Edmonton on a ride it hasn't experienced since 2006 and hopes to keep the Oilers on track when they host the surging Anaheim Ducks on Saturday. More importantly, the play of Edmonton's 19-year-old captain and owner of NHL-bests 23 assists and 34 points is starting to rub off on his teammates - most notably Leon Draisaitl, whose nine goals are on pace to shatter the 19 he scored in his first full season of 2015-16.
