EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers will be without center Connor McDavid indefinitely after the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft fractured his left clavicle Tuesday in a 4-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers.

McDavid had surgery Wednesday and will be out months, Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli said.

"Connor is such a special player at such a young age, that it's disappointing," Chiarelli said. "Today feels like a loss, where we won last night, but it feels like a loss. But we'll get by it. We have a good staff here, we have good players, and we do have a little momentum here and we'll build on that."

McDavid was injured with 1:44 remaining in the second period when he hit the end boards with Flyers defensemen Brandon Manning and Michael Del Zotto.

"What's important is just to move forward," Chiarelli said. "We're going to be missing him for a while and we have good players and we're getting a good player back (forward Jordan Eberle). Teams suffer catastrophic injuries and teams figure it out. It's something that the team, the guys, have to step up. They will miss Connor, but he will be back. He'll be like a trade acquisition when he comes back, which will be nice, and we move on."
