Prior to tonight, Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid had been out 37 straight games with a fractured collarbone, and it’s been safe to say the Oilers haven’t been the same since the injury.
The 19-year-old McDavid, who is playing in his first game at age 19 tonight, had 12 points, five goals, and 7 assists in 13 games with the Oilers up until the injury, and he finally returned tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
And of course, McDavid scored, and he scored in a pretty sweet way:

The Oilers are also playing some sweet hockey right now, as they likely win their 20th game on the season, leading the Blue Jackets 4-1 after two full periods.
