Connor McDavid was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy after the Stanley Cup Finals, and now we know why he didn't come out to accept it.

The Finals were a thrilling display of hockey's highs and lows, ending with the Edmonton Oilers' dramatic Game 7 loss after attempting a comeback from a 3-0 deficit. Despite the loss, Oilers captain McDavid took home the Conn Smythe Trophy, given annually to the Stanley Cup Playoffs MVP.
Controversy arose when McDavid was absent during Commissioner Gary Bettman's announcement, prompting backlash. Insider Elliotte Friedman has since revealed the official reason: McDavid wanted to be with his team, a decision that makes sense for a leader. However, the NHL should have anticipated this when awarding the trophy to a player from the losing team. Ultimately, this may not be remembered as a mark against McDavid. Considering everything the team endured to reach that point, it's understandable why he chose to support his teammates instead.
