A shocking revelation occurred tonight in the Edmonton Oilers 6-5 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Brandon Manning in a heated exchange told Connor McDavid that he intentionally broke his collarbone last season. McDavid said via the Edmonton Oilers Facebook page, according to theScore.

You know what, I did all I could defending him last year in the media. Everyone wanted to make it a big deal, say he did it on purpose. He wanted to say some comments today about what went on last year. I thought it was one of the (most) classless things I've ever seen on the ice.  
He said some things, and our guys responded accordingly. But I guess we can put the whole 'if he did it on purpose' thing to rest, because what he said out there confirmed that. It shows what kind of guy he is when he doesn't step up and fight some of our guys.

On the other side, Manning called the Oilers captain "classless" for chirping at him during Thursday night's game. McDavid and Manning pushed and shoved in the first period.
