Expert drops bombshell about Connor Bedard and Matvei Michkov

BY MARCO    JUNE 7, 2023  (7:03 PM)
The draft is just around the corner, and barring a huge surprise, Connor Bedard will be a member of the Chicago Blackhawks.

In fact, the only possible surprise, even if we don't believe in it, would be if Russian Matvei Michkov were selected before him. That would be quite a turnaround.

According to prospect expert Corey Pronman, Michkov's potential is enormous, even greater than Bedard's.

"Michkov may be the best draft-eligible prospect I've ever seen in my life in the offensive zone. (past the opposing blue line) He may be the best prospect I've seen in that regard, or if not, he's not far off.


His offensive skills and instincts are truly incredible. He's a scoring machine. He's a unique player, with the potential to create immense offense in the NHL if everything falls into place, which isn't certain yet though." - Pronman

We're talking about a great connoisseur who saw the best grow up before joining the NHL. That's no mean feat!
