Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid skipped Monday's game against the Dallas Stars due to an illness.

It marked the first game McDavid has missed since his rookie season, ending a streak of 222 straight regular-season games played, according to Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels.

The 21-year-old has posted 35 points in 26 games, going pointless in just four contests. Entering Monday's clash with Dallas, McDavid had factored in on 50 percent of the Oilers' goals.
