Darren Dreger spoke with NBCSN’s Liam McHugh on Wednesday, giving more details on Connor McDavid‘s injury situation.
The most direct news for Edmonton Oilers fans: the best-case scenario for McDavid’s return would be a window of seven-to-eight weeks.
Hopefully you note that it’s a best-case scenario, although hockey players – especially ones as devoted as McDavid – sometimes beat even optimistic outlooks.
Still, this is a broken clavicle we’re talking about, so it could be a significantly bigger problem for all we know.
Dreger provides more sensory details in the video above, including talk of a “clean break.”
