Connor Bedard is also to play

Connor Bedard could find the flaw in an armored tank if two points were in play, but when it comes time to pull out the shoulder shots, he doesn’t give up either.

On Wednesday, the 17-year-old center took part in a game between high caliber prospects ( Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game ). Bleached from the score sheet, the one who is currently ranked first among North American skaters by the NHL’s Central Scouting has made his presence felt in another way.

Some talk about a sneaky shot. Me, I prefer to talk about a youngster who plays hard to win, even when it doesn’t count.

It is true that Bedard arrives in the blind spot of his target and that he does not content himself with jostling it. At least it doesn’t come close to hitting the head.

This isn’t the first time the #98 has shown what he’s made of with something other than his stick. Even against a defender trying to get in his way, he may have the last word.

Teemu Selanne has already prepared Connor Bedard’s place in the Ducks locker room . Can someone politely tell him that the Bell Center is where the future star of the circuit will end up?

We cross our fingers.
