Edmonton Oilers Captain Connor McDavid recently revealed he played through the entire playoffs with an abdominal injury and will likely need surgery this offseason.

Despite this, McDavid managed to score an incredible 42 points during the Oilers' playoff run, which ended just one game short of the Stanley Cup. His performance, which earned him the Conn Smythe Trophy, is even more impressive given the severity of his injury.
The war of attrition took its toll on the Oilers. Head coach Kris Knoblauch didn't divulge any information Monday night after the loss, but both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl have been playing through significant injuries, Oilersnation has learned. McDavid has played through an abdominal injury that likely requires surgery, while Draisaitl has been banged up too, I've been told. He's believed to be dealing with a broken rib and finger. It's nothing new for a laundry list of players to be dealing with injuries after deep playoff runs, and surely we'll hear of more in the coming days." - Oilers Nation

Additionally, Leon Draisaitl was dealing with finger and rib injuries, which affected his performance in the final series, where he scored no goals.
Connor McDavid waited for all his teammates after the Game 7 loss.

A true captain 👏

McDavid's focus now shifts to rehabilitation, aiming to be fully refreshed for the fall season, where he'll seek revenge against the Florida Panthers who ended Edmonton's attempt at rallying from an 0-3 deficit, falling 2-1 in Game 7.
