Twitter reaction: Connor McDavid crashes, out long-term

Edmonton Oilers forwards Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins talk about the injury to rookie sensation Connor McDavid.

No one wanted to see this.

Less than one month into 18-year-old Connor McDavid‘s freshman campaign and just one day after scooping NHL Rookie of the Month honours for October, the Edmonton Oilers centre suffered a broken collarbone when he crashed into the boards Tuesday night in Philadelphia.

With 12 points through 13 games, McDavid heads to the sidelines for months, opening a gaping hole in Edmonton’s lineup, the Calder Trophy race, and the league’s excitement.

Here is a sampling of the reaction on Twitter to McDavid’s injury, which occurred during unlucky Game 13, during his unlucky month of November.
