CALGARY - Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid left his team's season finale with a left leg injury after a hard collision with the net against the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

McDavid was helped off the ice by teammate Zack Kassian and a trainer after crashing into the Flames' net.

McDavid fell to the ice after being challenged by Flames defenceman Mark Giordano and then slid hard into the net.

The native of Newmarket, Ont., held his left leg for several minutes after the incident before being helped off.

McDavid is second in the league in scoring with 116 points this season.

The Oilers were eliminated from playoff contention earlier this week.
