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."

Kopitar took a hit to the head from Blues right wing Ryan Reaves late in the first period, skating in from behind Reaves. Kopitar finished the period but did not return to the game.

Devils prospect sporting 'Seinfeld'-themed mask

Wednesday, 11.04.2015 / 5:20 PM / News

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.

Crosby calls McDavid injury 'definitely unfortunate'

Wednesday, 11.04.2015 / 4:38 PM / News

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.

Jon Lane - Staff Writer

For the sixth straight year USA Hockey will host its annual Try Hockey For Free Day, an initiative encouraging children ages 4 through 9 to participate in the sport for the first time.

The first of their two events will be Nov. 7, with the second taking place Feb. 20, 2016, as part of Hockey Weekend Across America.

Try Hockey For Free Day is part of USA Hockey's Come Play Hockey Month in November.

According to USA Hockey, Try Hockey For Free Day has opened the doors to hockey for nearly 100,000 children, including a record 28,446 in 2013-14, and optimism is high it will come close to or even exceed that mark this year.

"The good news is it’s become kind of a staple on the hockey calendar," said Pat Kelleher, USA Hockey's assistant executive director of development. "The one this weekend comes at a time when everybody is excited and enthused about the start of the season. The NHL is in full swing as is the American Hockey League. College hockey and junior hockey are both in full swing. It’s a great time for everyone across the country to join forces to give families that haven’t been exposed to hockey an opportunity to try the sport."

Fantasy top 60 defensemen: Buy low on Muzzin

Every Wednesday during the season, fantasy hockey contributor Brian Metzer provides in-depth defenseman analysis. From updated weekly top 60 rankings to trending players and more, Metzer is your go-to guy for fantasy D-men advice all season long.

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin took a hit from Colorado Avalanche forward Blake Comeau during a preseason game Sept. 27 that left him with what the team called an upper-body injury.

That injury lingered as the regular season began. While Muzzin has played all 12 of the Kings' games, he wasn't doing so at 100 percent.

He was a minus-6 in his first three games and went seven games without a point. Some of that was due to the Kings losing their first three games. But health also played a role.
