Following their Stanley Cup loss, it has been confirmed that Edmonton Oilers' Connor McDavid played through the playoffs with an injury, impacting his performance.

Connor McDavid undoubtedly had one of the most impressive playoff performances the NHL has seen. Though the Edmonton Oilers could not pull out the win against the Florida Panthers in Game 7, he proved successful enough to earn this season's Conn Smythe Trophy.
"A performance for the ages. 👏

With an incredible 42 points in 25 #StanleyCup Playoffs games, Connor McDavid is your Conn Smythe Trophy winner."

However, McDavid not only fell off in the last couple of games against Florida, but he also went for fewer shots on goal throughout the postseason. Fans who noticed this began circulating rumors that the player was nursing an injury while on the ice.
"I've never been more convinced that McDavid is injured in some capacity if he's missing this opportunity"

Now, after the season ended for the Oilers without the Cup, these rumors have been proven truthful. McDavid suffered an abdominal injury that is likely to need surgery.
"— Connor McDavid played though an abdominal injury that will most likely require surgery in the off season.

— WARRIOR"

Other injuries on the Edmonton Oilers

Connor McDavid was not the only injured player on the ice during the playoffs. Edmonton Oilers head coach Kris Knoblauch shared details of a few other players nursing injuries in their race to the Stanley Cup.
"Kris Knoblauch provides an update on the injuries the Oilers were dealing with throughout the playoffs."

With so many valuable players dealing with injuries while out on the ice, the question remains: how might the final battle have gone if McDavid was in full health? Unfortunately, no one can ever know, and he will just have to keep pushing even harder as his career continues.
