Blackhawks Head Coach Shares Major Bedard Update



During his media availability Blackhawks head coach Luke Richardson spoke about Connor Bedard's recovery after taking a nasty hit from Devils defenseman Brendan Smith.

Richardson says that Bedard is dealing with swelling in his jaw that has made a timeline difficult to project.


Luke Richardson on whether they Blackhawks have set a recovery timeline for Connor Bedard's fractured jaw:

No. Still just evaluating how he's doing and settling down. It's swollen, so the doctors are giving it a few days to see how it settles.


The Blackhawks like the rest of us will now wait for the swelling to decrease so that a proper evaluation can be done. Once this is possible a more concrete timeline can be given. As that process occurs and more information is reported we will pass that along to you.
