“He’s got a bruise on his knee or above his knee,” Oilers coach Dave Tippett told reporters Monday. “We’ll see where he is in the morning. I wouldn’t rule him out [Tuesday] but I’m not saying he’s in, either.”
McDavid, 23, was injured in Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators.
He said that this ailment isn’t related the posterior cruciate ligament injury he suffered last April in the regular-season finale.
“It’s a completely different part,” McDavid said. “Nothing that was hurt before hurts now. That’s good news. We’ll see how it feels and worry about it [Tuesday].”
