Ryan Rishaug, a hockey analyst on Sportscentre (TSN), has raised concerns about Connor McDavid's fitness and health. According to Rishaug, McDavid is not playing at 100% of his capability, as he lacks his usual breakaway speed and agility on the ice. Despite being productive and still a valuable player for the Edmonton Oilers, Rishaug believes that McDavid needs to be 100% healthy for the team to go far in the playoffs.


Rishaug's comments came after the Oilers' recent game, in which McDavid played but didn't seem to be at his usual level of performance. Despite this, McDavid has still managed to score 12 points in the first seven games of the playoffs, tying him for third place in the league.

It's worth noting that playing through an injury is not uncommon in hockey, and McDavid's ability to remain productive on the ice while potentially injured is a testament to his skill and toughness. However, if the Oilers want to go deep in the playoffs, they will need McDavid to be at his best, which means ensuring he is fully healthy and recovered.
