CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid injured his left leg and left Saturday’s season finale against the Calgary Flames after colliding with the net.

McDavid was helped off the ice by teammate Zack Kassian and a trainer after crashing into the Flames’ net.

McDavid fell to the ice after being challenged by Flames defenseman Mark Giordano and then slid hard into the net.

McDavid held his left leg for several minutes before being helped off. There was no immediate word on the extent of the injury.

The 22-year-old McDavid is second in the league in scoring this season with 116 points.

The Oilers were eliminated from playoff contention earlier this week.
