The Chicago Blackhawks have found themselves in a rebuild for the last 2 years or so. Luckily for them they won the Connor Bedard sweepstakes and gave that rebuild a push forward. Many were wondering if Bedard would become the immediate face of the franchise and leader in the locker room. We now have an answer to these questions.

Blackhawks Make A Huge Decision That Affects Bedard

Connor Bedard has been showing off his all world potential during the recent rookie tournament that Chicago is in. He had a hat trick in the first game and looked every bit as good as everyone thought he would.
This led many to wonder how much responsibility the Blackhawks were going to give Bedard in year one. An NHL captain has massive responsibility in creating a culture for an organization. This was something many were wondering if Connor Bedard was ready for year one. Now thanks to a new report we have our answer about a potential for captain Connor Bedard.
It seems as though the Blackhawks will continue on without a captain in year one. They will still have plenty of leadership in the locker room while they likely prep Bedard for the captaincy.

Following In Massive Footsteps

If and when Connor Bedard does become captain of the Chicago Blackhawks he will have massive shoes to fill. Bedard will be following up Jonathan Toews who is considered one of the most successful captains in both franchise and NHL history.
Under Toews' captaincy the Blackhawks found themselves in the middle of a dynasty. They won three Stanley Cups and cultivated one of the best eras in franchise history. Now Connor Bedard will be looking to do the same for the city of Chicago.
Bedard won't be alone though as the Blackhawks are building a good young core. Players like Frank Nazar and Kevin Korchinski among others have a very bright future. This year will be an interesting measuring stick for how far along the Blackhawks rebuild is.
