Canucks Tease Connor Bedard Ahead Of Sunday Afternoon Matchup

Connor Bedard paid his hometown team, the Vancouver Canucks, a visit today as the Blackhawks visited Vancouver for the first time this season. Bedard famously grew up as a Canucks fan so this game has been highly anticipated by many, including the Canucks X admin, apparently.

Canucks Taunt Bedard On Social Media



The Canucks social media admin made a funny post this morning ahead of the team's matchup against the Blackhawks. The post essentially claims that Bedard is still a fan of the Canucks despite the fact that he now plays for the Chicago Blackhawks. To be fair, it must be hard to have to play against your favorite team growing up when you are only 18 years old.

Canucks fans in every city. 💙




Then again, Bedard seems to thrive under pressure as he put up one of his better performances of the season, despite losing the game 4-3.

Bedard Records Multi-Point Effort In loss To Canucks



The 18-year-old rookie has left his impression on the league already with his goal scoring ability, but tonight he showed off his playmaking ability as he recorded two assists, both on the man advantage.

Bedard is now up to 12 goals and 26 points in 30 games so far in his NHL career. He has already established himself as one of the premier offensive talents in the league. The rookie addressed what it was like for him playing against his hometown team for the first time following the game.


The Blackhawks will look to get back in the win column against a very tough Avalanche team on Tuesday.
