Connor McDavid Breaks The Silence on His Crucial Injury

Published October 30, 2023 at 5:16

Much was made about Connor McDavid's injury less than a week ago by the media, where many thought he would be out for at least one to two weeks. However, this did not happen, as he played in yesterday's game held at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton for the Heritage Classic.

The Oilers were playing the Flames, renewing the Battle of Alberta, which is always a heated contest between the provincial cities of Edmonton and Calgary.

After the game was over, TNT's host asked him how he was feeling and how he managed to insert himself into the game even though many thought he couldn't.

He credited the Oilers' training staff, as they worked feverishly over the course of the week to get him game-ready for the Classic.

The Oilers snapped their four-game losing streak by winning 5-2 against the Flames. The Oilers held the shot advantage in the first two periods, with 29 of their 34 shots on goal. McDavid had two assists on the night and was a +2.

The Oilers will have some time off between the Classic and Thursday, November 2nd when they meet the Dallas Stars. Hopefully, they can build off that strong win against Calgary. Game time will be 9:00 PM Eastern.
