Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid tests positive for COVID-19

Deeply concerning to say the least, and on a number of levels. But any interpretation of the foregoing over and above its simple message would be premature speculation, so let’s just take the words at face value and wait (anxiously) for further hard news.

For now our thoughts are all with the player, and the person. We fervently hope that the symptoms remain mild, and wish Connor a full and speedy recovery.

More to come in the days ahead, no doubt.
