EDMONTON - Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid left Monday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers with what appears to be a shoulder injury.
With the Flyers leading 2-1 and 1:44 remaining in the second period, McDavid had a partial short-handed breakaway but fell awkwardly and was ridden hard into the boards by Philadelphia defencemen Michael Del Zotto and Brandon Manning, who also lost their balance on the play.
McDavid left the ice favouring his left shoulder. He was seen wearing a sling in the hallway behind the dressing room and did not return for the third period.
McDavid, the first overall selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, had 12 points in his first 12 games and was named the Rookie of the Month for October.
