Bedard Steps in When Kurashev Gets Borded From Behind
During the Blackhawks-Lightning game, a scary hit from Mikhail Sergachev sent Blackhawks player Philipp Kurashev head-first into the boards. The dangerous and borderline dirty hit drew a crowd from the Blackhawks.
Leading the charge for the Blackhawks was rookie phenom Connor Bedard, showing that he is more than just an offensive player. Bedard was the first to confront Sergachev before the larger crowd drew in, which was pretty gutsy for the 18-year-old.
Bedard Is Impressing All Over The Ice in His Rookie Season
Bedard is living up to all of the hype he received leading up to the season. He has 9 goals and 4 assists for 13 points in 14 games. He has broken several records for the youngest player to hit certain scoring milestones. He has even earned high praise from the Great One, Wayne Gretzky.
There's no question that the Chicago Blackhawks have found their centrepiece for the rebuild into the future. It will be up to them to find the pieces to surround Bedard with in the future.
DO YOU THINK BEDARD WILL WIN THE CALDER?
