Connor Bedard takes the NHL by storm

Connor Bedard, the overall first pick in the NHL draft, has been nothing but thoroughly impressive throughout his campaign with the Chicago Blackhawks despite the wary state of the franchise this season.

Blackhawks are currently last in the Central division of the Western Conference with a record of 11-25-2 in 38 games. The recent loss to the New York Rangers adds to their disappointing losing streak. They have had a major injury crisis with 6 of their forwards out and Anthony Beauvillier being the latest person on the injury list.

Connor Bedard makes history

Despite the prominent issues looming over the Blackhawks, the best news is the arrival of generational talent Connor Bedard. In his first season, he has shaken up the NHL community. With 15 goals and 18 assists, totaling 33 points in the first 38 NHL games, he is averaging almost 0.40 goals per game and 0.87 points per game. Connor Bedard has put up these numbers despite the unavailability of the top stars of the franchise.

Once they return from their injuries, the numbers will hopefully be even more impressive. He’s already well on his way to posting 30+ goals this season and thus has the chance at becoming the first rookie since the COVID-19 pandemic to post such numbers.

The centerman’s control at top speed and his ability to create plays for his teammates, coupled with his lethal finishing has impressed the NHL community.

Connor Bedard is one of the 32 players selected by the NHL to feature in the 2024 NHL All-Star Game on February 3rd. The game will take place at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. He is also likely to take part in the skill games before the match.
