During the Edmonton Oilers' morning practice, Connor McDavid found himself in a painful situation after taking a shot to the wrong spot.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins took a snapshot from the slot, but it ricocheted off the post and hit McDavid, who was not expecting it, pretty hard in the knee. The impact was strong enough to take McDavid down on one knee, and RNH looked skyward in disbelief as the superstar center winced in pain.


However, the good news is that McDavid is okay, and after a few minutes down on one knee, he was able to get back up and continue playing.



This incident serves as a reminder of the dangers that come with playing in the NHL, during in practice and game. Despite the scare, McDavid's resilience and toughness were on full display, as he refused to let the incident slow him down.
