“I think I can be a lot better” – Connor Bedard

Young Connor Bedard passed his first test at Chicago Blackhawks training camp by collecting two assists in his first exhibition game on Thursday, but he seems to remain hungry and his rivals only have to Behave.

The original pick in the 2023 National Hockey League (NHL) draft assisted on Phillip Kurashev’s second-period goal before allowing Andreas Athanasiou to score the decisive overtime goal in a 2-1 win over the St. John’s Blues. Louis. Additionally, the 18-year-old had a busy night at the United Center, where many fans were on hand to see him in action. He took five shots in more than 21 minutes of play and won 10 of his 16 faceoffs.

However, number 98 has more to show, according to him.

“I think I can be a lot better,” he said, as reported by NHL.com. Personally, I don’t think I excelled. It’s very good to get the victory. Even though it’s a preseason game, there’s nothing better than winning. I felt comfortable with the systems, which is good. In the defensive zone, I was very comfortable, but I believe I am capable of better.

Despite his somewhat strong opinion, Bédard managed to impress his chief instructor Luke Richardson. The latter should in principle take the necessary measures to become even more familiar with the frenetic pace of the NHL between now and the inaugural meeting of the campaign scheduled for October 10 with Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“I think he was good. He really wanted to score. There were a few sequences where he wasn’t a suspect. (…) But he reads the game very well, estimated the pilot. He made an incredible pass for the winning goal and we saw a lot of that. He’s just comfortable with the puck, he likes to skate through traffic. He will have no problem playing with the biggest players in this league and the toughest players. He has the particularity of finding the right thing to do at the right time.

Effective everywhere

For his part, Hawks guard Kevin Korchinski said he was dazzled by Bédard’s play without the puck.

“The main point was his defensive game. He’s a guy who applies our system perfectly within our territory. This aspect often goes unnoticed, so it’s great to see this.

Additionally, the rookie likes when there is more space on the ice, like in overtime. He notably completed a sequence of 1 min 31 s and could very well have continued it.

“Yes, I like hockey. I want to be on the ice, he remembers. With everyone at home, I was already playing three-on-three, probably five or six days a week. It was my greatest pleasure in life.

“Indeed, I didn’t want to leave the ice. »
