Connor McDavid Tests Positive For COVID-19

Connor McDavid has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a report from the Edmonton Oilers.

As per the Edmonton Oilers official account, captain of the hockey club, Connor McDavid has tested positive for COVID-19. The team released a statement late Monday evening.

The statement reads:

“Earlier today, Oilers captain Connor McDavid underwent medical testing that revealed a positive result for the COVID-19 virus. Since that time, he has been in voluntarily self-quarantine at his home. He will continue to be monitored and will follow all associated health protocols. He is feeling well and is experiencing mild symptoms.”

Really, all anyone can say here is that we hope he is over the virus soon and has no lasting damage. It just goes to show that athletes and young people can get this virus and no one is immune. It’s incredibly unfortunate, but jumping to any sort of assumptions as to how this happened seems premature.

It also goes to show how well the NHL’s bubble system worked during the postseason. McDavid and the Oilers played in the NHL’s qualifying round and the bubble proved effective as the NHL managed to avoid the spread of the contagion. Not one person was reported to have contracted the virus while inside the bubble.
