Connor McDavid…

of the OHL’s Erie Otters is out 5-6 weeks with a broken pinky.  He suffered the injury in a fight with the Mississauga Steelheads’ Bryson Cianfron.

McDavid has been putting up Gretzky-esq number this season and was projected to be the first or second pick the the 2015 NHL draft. In 18 games he has recorded 16 goals and 35 assists for 51 points and a +34.

I was looking forward to going to Sarnia next week to see McDavid play against the Sting.  I guess I’ll have to wait.

FYI: Based on the video above, it looks like McDavid can handle himself as well.
