Touted NHL draft prospect Connor McDavid left his OHL game Tuesday night with what appeared to be a right hand injury, according to Victor Fernandes of the Erie Times-News.
According to Fernandes, McDavid, who plays for the Erie Otters, sustained the injury during a fight with the Mississauga Steelheads' Bryson Cianfrone in the second period, with McDavid missing Cianfrone with a punch and accidentally hitting the glass.
The center received five minutes for fighting and a game misconduct for removing Cianfrone's helmet before leaving the game.
Considered the top prospect for next year's NHL draft, McDavid leads the OHL in scoring with 53 points in 19 games, including two points against the Steelheads on Tuesday.
