McDavid Gets Injured in Game Against Winnipeg


In the final moments of the third period, Connor McDavid was off the ice, staying put on the bench. Remarkably, he was sidelined during the last four minutes of the game.

Post-game, Oilers' head coach Jay Woodcrost shed light on McDavid's situation.

From @EdmontonOilers Jay Woodcroft on @cmcdavid97 "I didn't walk back there yet but it looked to be more muscular. I'll have an update tomorrow".

The good news? It doesn't appear to be a major injury.

A Devastating Loss in a Tight Affair

McDavid had a significant presence in the game with 20:48 of playtime. This was even with him missing the crucial ending and the overtime period. He delivered two assists, made two hits, took a shot, maintained a +1 , and secured 66.67% of his faceoffs.

The Oilers aren't off to the start they wanted. Let's hope someone in the organization leads the team back to the victory road.
