In Saturday's game versus the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers' captain Connor McDavid suffered a lower-body injury, according to insiders Ryan Rishaug and Mark Spector.

Just emerging, this report suggests McDavid's absence from the lineup is due to day-to-day labeling.

"Officially, McDavid has a lower body injury and is day to day. Questionable for tmw v. VGK.
Injury happened with roughly 5:00 to play in Calgary Saturday.
Sounds like an injury, but not a major one. With playoffs around the corner, they'll be careful."




"McDavid day to day with a lower body injury. Knoblauch says McDavid will make the call on whether or not he plays tomorrow night. It's not the same issue he missed 2 games with earlier in year. Priority will be making sure he's healthy for playoffs vs playoff chases."


McDavid's injury looming over the Oilers' roster could affect their performance in the upcoming game.
