Edmonton Oilers rookie sensation Connor McDavid avoided damage to the tissue surrounding his broken left clavicle suffered Tuesday in a collision involving two Philadelphia Flyers defensemen, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

Dreger said he was told that McDavid's labrum was fully intact as surgeons repaired a "clean" break of the collarbone, and hypothesized that the best-case scenario for his return is seven-to-eight weeks.

Edmonton GM Peter Chiarelli said Wednesday that McDavid will miss months, not weeks.

The No. 1 overall selection scored five goals and 12 points in his 13 games before the injury.

The Oilers have since confirmed that McDavid did indeed have surgery.
