Connor McDavid is the best prospect the hockey world has seen for quite a few years. But the teenager still has a bit of growing up to do.
Well, growing up combined with some physiotherapy and rehabilitation as well after he fractured a bone in his hand during a fight in a game with the Erie Otters.
Playing in the Ontario Hockey League last night, McDavid ended up in his second fight of the season. After being fed up of the constant hits and slashes he has to take as the best player in the league, he retaliated. And it didn't end well for the youngster.
During Tuesday’s matchup between the Otters and the Mississauga Steelheads, McDavid left the game with a right hand injury and failed to return to the ice.
The injury occurred as McDavid got into it with Steelheads skater Bryson Cianfrone during the second period, during the scrap - which McDavid was dominating by the way - as the 17-year old missed Cianfrone and drove his hand into the glass behind him, fracturing a bone in the hand.

McDavid received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the fight, as he removed Cianfrone’s helmet during the scuffle, he can be seen clutching his hand in pain as he skates off.
That was all before McDavid had already managed to rack up two points in the game, which brought his tally for the 2014-2015 OHL season to 53 points in 19 games - putting him on course to break Sidney Crosby's long-standing record in the league.
That shows you just how much of a prospect Connor McDavid is. And if you didn't know already, he's a much better skater than a fighter.News Now - Sport News
