Trailer: New documentary shows Connor McDavid’s difficult rehab after potential career-ending injury
On April 6th, 2019, during the final regular-season game of the Edmonton Oilers’ 2018-19 schedule, Connor McDavid went crashing into the Calgary Flames net and suffered a terrifying and potentially career-ending injury.
It was later revealed that McDavid’s injury was a Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) tear in his left knee, something that came with a recommendation for surgery and carried a 10-month rehabilitation and recovery. McDavid opted for an advanced non-surgical rehabilitation program with the aim to return for the first game of the Oilers’ 2019-20 regular reason, just six months away.
Sportsnet had full access to McDavid and his rehab entire team throughout the off-season and documented it in a new feature called “Whatever It Takes,” which is slated to debut following the NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Friday, January 24th.
