Oilers' McDavid has fractured clavicle, out months

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."

New Jersey Devils goalie prospect Scott Wedgewood is supporting the team with a mask featuring "Seinfeld" character David Puddy.

"It's something I've wanted for a long time," Wedgewood told the Albany Devils website. "I'm a huge 'Seinfeld' fan. Growing up, my oldest brother Mark loved it, got me into it. He has all nine seasons, I've seen every episode.

"When I was first drafted by New Jersey, one of the first things any of us said was, 'The Devils!' the tribute line David Puddy says in the TV show called 'The Face Painter.'"

Wedgewood, the 84th pick of the 2010 NHL Draft, is playing for Albany in the American Hockey League. The 23-year-old has yet to make his NHL debut.

The first NHL regular-season game between Edmonton Oilers rookie Connor McDavid and Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby will not take place until next season after McDavid sustained a fractured clavicle Tuesday that will sideline him for months.

"You could tell he was really starting to get comfortable and feeling good out there, so it's definitely unfortunate, just kind of a fluky thing," Crosby said Wednesday after the morning skate prior to playing at the Vancouver Canucks.

Crosby and Pittsburgh play at Edmonton on Friday; the Oilers visit the Penguins on Nov. 28.

Via the Elias Sports Bureau, Seguin is the first former Bruins player to score a hat trick against the team since Nov. 7, 1996 (Mariusz Czerkawski: 3-0—3 w/ EDM).

* Elias adds that Seguin's six hat tricks since joining the Stars in 2013-14 are the most in the NHL in that span. Seguin has seven hat tricks since entering the NHL in 2010-11, tied with Steven Stamkos for second-most in that span behind Corey Perry (8).

DMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers will be without center Connor McDavid after the No. 1 selection in the 2015 NHL Draft sustained a long-term, upper-body injury on Tuesday.

McDavid went crashing into the end boards after taking a shot on net late in the second period of a 4-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers at Rexall Place.

Oilers coach Todd McLellan confirmed McDavid would be out long-term. General manager Peter Chiarelli is expected to provide an update on McDavid's status Wednesday.

McDavid came down the left wing, shot, was checked, fell, and slid into the end boards with 1:44 remaining in the second. He was being defended by Flyers defensemen Brandon Manning and Michael Del Zotto.

"He's disappointed, it's disappointing to get injured," McLellan said. "It's his rookie year, things are going really well and he wants to be part of the group, which he still will be, just not in a uniform for a little while. I have a 19-year-old, I can't imagine how he would feel if he was in the NHL in his first year and got hurt."

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly is expected to miss 6-8 months after fracturing his left femur in the first period of a 5-3 loss to the Dallas Stars at TD Garden on Tuesday.

Kelly left 1:40 into the game and was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital. He will have surgery Wednesday.

Kelly, who had two goals in 11 games, was not hit before he went down near the Stars bench and grasped his left leg.

"Well, you hope we can somehow compensate for his loss, but I think people are going to realize how important he is to our hockey club, not just on the ice but also in the dressing room and around the team," Bruins coach Claude Julien. "He's a guy that is extremely respected by his teammates, and on the ice he's given us everything we've asked for.

"He's been moved around in all different positions, never says a word, but just thrives on the opportunity to play in those spots that we've put him. He was a very versatile player that we really counted on. No doubt he'll be missed."
