NHL's top player out with injury

Published October 23, 2023 at 4:37 PM

The Edmonton Oilers will be without Connor McDavid for 1-2 weeks with an upper-body injury.

McDavid did not play the entirety of the third period during Saturday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

The NHL's reigning Hart trophy winner and Art Ross winner of the past three seasons has eight points in five games to start this season.

After posting a record setting power play percentage last season, the Oilers are currently fifth in the NHL with a 30.0% power play.

The Oilers' start has not been up to their standards as a playoff contender, the team sits fifth in the Pacific Division with a record of 1-3-1 and a goal differential of minus seven.

With their captain out for the next couple of weeks, the Oilers will turn to Leon Draisaitl to lead the offense and get their season back on track.
