When Edmonton Oilers rookie phenom Connor McDavid injured his clavicle early in the season, we knew we were missing what could've been a rookie season for the ages.
But we didn't know exactly what we were missing until Tuesday. The first overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft made his grand return from a months-long injury absence at home against the Columbus Blue Jackets and immediately showed off his skills.
Midway through the game, McDavid led a rush up the ice, split two defensemen and deked out the goalie for an incredible score.
McDAVID. IS. BACK.https://t.co/J2vjqimBcJ— NHL (@NHL) February 3, 2016
This kid is going to be such a joy to watch. Thank goodness he's back.
