Connor Bédard impresses in his first match

In his second appearance in his first preseason game with the Chicago Blackhawks, Connor Bedard brought the spectators at the United Center out of their seats.

The first overall pick at the most recent National League (NHL) amateur auction took possession of the puck in the defensive zone, before weaving between several St. Louis Blues players thanks to superb feints. However, the shot number 98 of the sequence was rejected by Joel Hofer.

Check out Connor Bédard’s best moments in the video above.

During the second period, Bédard collected his first point with the team on Philipp Kurashev’s goal. The first city had redirected the shot of defender Kevin Korchinski. The Blues goaltender repelled this first threat, but Kurashev grabbed the rebound to put the puck in the back of the net.

Finally, in overtime, Connor Bedard launched Andreas Athanasiou on a breakaway and the latter did not fail in the task, deceiving the vigilance of Will Cranley with a backhand shot to give his team a 2-1 victory.

The young rookie finished his night of work with two assists, five shots and a playing time of 21:42, the highest total among Chicago forwards.

The Hawks’ next game is Saturday against the Minnesota Wild.

A first goal for Tyler Toffoli with the Devils

During the New Jersey Devils’ 3-2 victory against the New York Rangers, former Montreal Canadiens Tyler Toffoli stood out offensively by scoring his first goal with his new team on Thursday night.

Jesper Bratt and Michael McLeod were the other two scorers for the Devils. New York Rangers defenseman Erik Gustaffson, who previously played for the Habs during the 2020-2021 season, also scored in the second period.

Igor Shesterkin played the first two periods of the game for the Blueshirts and stopped 20 of the 21 pucks aimed at him. Quebecer Louis Domingue subsequently appeared in front of the Rangers cage, allowing a goal.

Penguins and Capitals win

The Pittsburgh Penguins won 3-1 against the Buffalo Sabers on Thursday night. In the victory, Drew O’Connor scored two goals. Lars Eller, now standard bearer for the Pennsylvania club, delivered a pass.

For Alex Ovechkin’s first preseason game this season, the Washington Capitals won 4-3 against the Detroit Red Wings. The Russian legend’s teammates almost saw their lead disappear completely when Robby Fabbri reduced the score to 4-3 late in the third period, but the damage was already done.
