Oilers seek additional opinions on Connor McDavid injury

Connor McDavid flew into the post at high speed, slamming his leg and requiring the trainer’s assistance to get off the ice as the Oilers play their final game of the season.

Earlier this week the Edmonton Oilers sent Connor McDavid for second and third opinions on his leg injury while they formulate a recovery plan, sources tell Sportsnet.

It remains unknown, at least publicly, what the exact nature of the injury to his leg is. We do know that a post-game X-ray last Saturday was negative, revealing no fractures.
