The Edmonton Oilers are starting the new year off with a bang.

The team announced on Friday, which just so happens to be the first day of 2016, that their young superstar, former first overall draft choice Connor McDavid has returned to the ice for the first time to practice with his teammates since suffering a devastating injury.

This has to be considered a major leap forward for McDavid's recovery, and although the Oilers have not made anything official one has to imagine that this means McDavid will be making his return over the course of the next several days.
