Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid injured in season finale vs. Calgary Flames

Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid injured in season finale vs. Calgary Flames”

It appeared to be a serious injury, but the Oilers tweeted that X-rays were negative. Things look fairly positive right now. "I was just anxious about standing up".

"I think that's the respect factor". "To be honest, I thought my leg was in two pieces when I was sitting on the ice". "I'll reach out to him and hopefully get an answer, but it's a 1-on-1".

McDavid entered the game second in the league with 116 points.

Out of the playoffs for the 12th time in the past 13 years and having fired its coach and general manager, Edmonton has set up an offseason that stands to see substantial changes in hockey operations.

The Western Conference-leading Calgary Flames had 11. The Over is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings in Calgary and the Flames are 6-2 in their last 8 games as a home favorite which bodes well for them here against an Oilers side who will have their season come to an end after the game. The guy means so much to not only this team but the organization, the city.

"Obviously, with the result being what it is, if I had to do it all over again, you'd nearly want to see myself let him go and not injure him", he said.

"A lot has been made about what I said in Vegas, but I'd be a complete loser if I wasn't frustrated", he said. It's frustrating and, yeah, it sucks, but we have to figure this out.

"We've got some stuff to figure out".

"Bob and I talked just briefly".

McDavid was confident the team will get it right and reassured Oilers fans he's in it for the long haul. Let's fix this. [It] doesn't matter what has to happen.

McDavid's left leg took the brunt of the impact. The Oilers have missed the playoff in three of McDavid's first four years.

Giordano was assessed a tripping penalty on the play, and McDavid said he was apologetic after the game.

"I know we're not far away". We haven't had picture in there so we'll see. "I appreciate that. Like I said, he was just trying to make a play on the puck". But you can't fault Giordano for trying to make a play on the puck.

"He came around and was really nice and just said "I feel bad" and whatnot", McDavid said. "I want to win and I want to be in the playoffs". McDavid was clocked by CBC, which televised the game, at more than 26 miles per hour on the rush down right wing before he was tripped by Giordano.

Hitchcock said injuries plagued the team, he specifically mentioned a game against Colorado in December where they lost two defencemen when they were already working with a depleted roster. "Part of may game is beating guys wide and going to the net", McDavid said.
