McDavid's NHL MVP defense begins with defensive improvement

Connor McDavid did not take much time off after he and the Edmonton Oilers were swept out of the playoffs in the first round.

The unanimous NHL MVP returned to the ice in July and worked hard to improve his defensive game with an eye on building off a 105-point season in just 56 games. McDavid's preparations take another step this week, skating with more than a dozen other players at the annual BioSteel pro hockey camp, and becoming a better all-around player is his focus.

"This is one of those weeks where guys are really trying to ramp it up and dial in their details, and I'm no different," McDavid told The Associated Press. "I'm trying to keep the details where they need to be, and that way when it comes camp it's not just a light switch."
