Last night Connor Bedard was almost involved in one of the scariest scenes imaginable as he almost sliced Winnipeg Jets star Mark Scheifele with his skate. After Scheifele tripped the 2023 first-overall pick, Bedard's skates got awfully close to Scheifele's neck and it looked to be mere inches away from tragedy.
