Connor Bedard's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Dec. 19th: "Bedard plays with incredible pace and skill, overwhelming opponents with his otherworldly ability to score. He’s a bit undersized, but Bedard is an absolute force, scoring from all over the ice."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 14th: "Will spend a month at the world juniors and still return to the WHL as its points and goals leader."

Ben Jordan - Smaht Scouting - Nov. 25th: "He compliments his above average skating legs, with the ability to process the game at lightning quick rates. He already has an NHL caliber shot even from tough angles, and a ridiculously quick release."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Nov. 15th: "He has tremendous individual skill and creativity, while also being an elite passer and goal-scorer who can make highly skilled plays at an NHL pace. He’s the most imaginative player with the puck on the ice while also being a goal-scoring threat from the dots."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 1st: "His release is lightning quick. There’s the pinpoint accuracy from tough angles. There are the little delays and stutters he uses to create separation and get to his spots."

Nick Richard - Dobber Prospects - Oct. 20th: "He is already a world-class shooter with great feet who processes the game at an elite rate, he layers his puck skills and vision on top of one another to string plays together with the very best of them, and he has a competitive fire that keeps him engaged at all times."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Oct. 19th: "No indication of draft year nerves. Has started the season flirting with a two point per game pace."

Steven - Daily FaceOff - Oct. 3rd: "Bedard is as well rounded as they come, and with an NHL-ready shot, he won’t need much time to adjust in the NHL. Bedard has superstar potential."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - Sept. 27th: "Bedard is absolutely dynamic in everything that he does as he’s a complete package offensive powerhouse. He’s got elite level IQ and awareness as he’s able to quickly evaluate the situation and pick out routes for him to generate a quality opportunity."

Bob McKenzie - TSN - Sept. 22nd: “Well,” said one NHL head scout, “I suppose anything is possible, but when you look at how [Bedard] shoots the puck, his innate ability to score goals and you project him as an elite goal scorer who could very well get 50 or 60 in the NHL, how does a team picking first overall pass on that?”
