An NHL mega-star has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

That superstar happens to be no other than Edmonton Oilers captain, Connor McDavid.

The Oilers broke the news about their captain on Monday night, stating in a tweet that McDavid had undergone COVID testing which revealed a positive result.

According to the tweet, McDavid is quarantining at his home and will comply with all associated health protocols. He is experiencing mild symptoms.

The positive test comes at a time when Canada is experiencing a sudden spike in positive cases, especially in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec where cases are rising by the thousands per day.

This is the first positive COVID test reported in the NHL since training camp in the Return to Play format. The NHL recorded no positive tests throughout the two-month bubble format in Toronto and Edmonton to officially finish the 2019-20 season.

The Oilers have not played since early August, when they were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Chicago Blackhawks in the Qualifying Round.
