Connor McDavid Has a Broken Collarbone
Seems like the Edmonton Oilers still can't buy a break.
But the Philadelphia Flyers just gave them one.
Two of their defensemen actually doled it out -- legally, on a hustle play -- to phenom Connor McDavid:
It appeared the Oil's haul of four straight No 1 overall draft choices was getting its collective act together in a string of four one-goal decisions against quality opponents. Even after McDavid donned a sling, Edmonton had enough to post a 4-2 triumph over the Flyers.
McDavid's injury just deflated a brace of highly anticipated events:
- He would've matched up against the Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews on Sun 8 Nov;
- His Toronto homecoming is on the docket for Mon 30 Nov; and
- He could've spent some serious one-on-one ice time against No 2 pick Jack Eichel when the Sabres hit the Northlands on Sun 6 Dec.
This is surely disappointing to Canadians everywhere.
