Connor Bedard Has Historic Start To Season

Connor Bedard has had quite the impact on the Chicago Blackhawks already as an 18-year-old rookie. While the team is still near the bottom of the standings, their schedule has been very tough and even then they look better than they did last season. The team has a competent offense this year, thanks largely in part due to Bedard's historic start.

Bedard Scores At Rate Not Seen In 80 Years



Through his first 10 games of the season, Connor Bedard has a cool 5 goals. No Blackhawk rookie has scored that many goals through their first 10 games in nearly 80 years.




This is a testament to just how good of a goal scorer Bedard is. If he is able to maintain this pace, he would score 40 goals this season, matching Auston Matthews' rookie season total. Doing so would put him on track for a hall of fame career.



Bedard and the Blackhawks next take on the New Jersey Devils tonight at 7PM EST.
