The Edmonton Oilers can’t catch a break. After all these years of suffering, losing Gretzky, ineptitude, etc… the hockey Gods have punished them once again. Just when you thought the tide had turned for the franchise getting the first overall pick in the star-studded 2015 draft, perennial superstar/phenom/rookie Connor McDavid will be out “Long Term” after suffering an upper-body injury during a violent crash in Tuesday night’s game vs. the Philadelphia Flyers.
Coach McLellan says @cmcdavid97 has an upper-body injury that will keep him out long term.— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) November 4, 2015
The incident occurred during a one-on-two rush in the Flyers’ zone, when McDavid went flying into the boards…
Up to this point: McDavid had recorded five goals and seven assists in his first 12 NHL games, leading the league amongst all first-year players.
