Connor Bedard's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "Bedard will inject immediate optimism into the Blackhawks organization and give the team a brand new centerpiece to build around."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "Whether using his all-world curl and drag shot, setting up for a one-time shot, a quick release off the rush, or using a defender as a screen and feathering it through traffic, Bedard is able to score a number of ways."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again: Bedard can do things with the puck that nobody else in the sport can replicate. Iím not talking about him compared to other prospects in this draft. Iím talking nobody"

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "His ability to process the game, the strength heís built up over the last two-plus seasons and that competitive fire all allow him to play without much concern that the only way he was not naturally gifted was in the height department."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "Bedard is a highly imaginative puckhandler and a very creative passer. That, combined with the fact his wrist shot is a top-tier NHL weapon from anywhere in the offensive zone, makes him a projected nightmare for NHL coaches to stop on the power play."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "After scoring 71 goals and 143 points in 57 regular season games, Bedard followed it up by scoring 10 goals and 20 points in just seven playoff games with Regina."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - May 5th: "Doesn't have lightning fast speed, but he's incredibly elusive due to his puck skill and ability to beat opponents under their hands and through their feet with the puck on his stick. Incredible release."
