On the final day of the regular season, Edmonton Oilers star center Connor McDavid may have suffered a serious injury. After being hurt, he stayed down for several minutes before being helped off the ice.

Once he went down, he knew he was seriously injured, he was holding his knee before Oilers medical staff was able to help him. He was hurt in a collision with the net on Saturday night against the Calgary Flames.

McDavid had to get the aid from teammate Zack Kassian, along with a trainer, to get off the ice. Before he collided with the net, he was challenged by Flames defenseman Mark Giordano.

The Oilers are expected to give an update on the condition of their star following the game. They are hoping for the best and hope that it is not a torn ACL, which would likely mean the end of his 2019-20 season before it even started.

The 22-year-old Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada native was the No. 1 overall pick by the Oilers in the 2015 NHL Draft. This season, he has scored 41 goals and 75 assists for 116 points in 77 games.

The 41 goals are tied for his career-best, as he also had 41 goals during the 2017-18 season. The 116 points; however, are a career-best for the star center.
