Connor Bedard has been in the NHL for about two minutes if you count preseason games but he already looks like a bona fide superstar.

Bedard Stuns NHL Veterans With Moves In Chicago Debut

Bedard's debut has been highly anticipated due to his status as a potential generational player. In just his second shift ever of any kind of NHL action, Bedard pulled off this move that you just have to see to believe.
That transition play followed up by the tow drag deke into a dangerous shot is among one of the most impressive sequences many would have ever seen from a rookie. His confidence level must be off the charts.
Chicago fans were probably expecting him to look sharp this preseason, but embarrassing an opposing defenseman like that might not be something everyone was expecting. If he continues to play like this in preseason the hype for his first regular season game is only going to grow.

Will Bedard Live Up To His Reputation?

The hype surrounding a player drafted 1st overall is always going to be massive but with Bedard, it is exceptionally strong. He is by far the favorite to win the Calder Trophy and is already mentioned in the same breath as players like Conner McDavid. For the first time in several years, the Blackhawks are going to be must-watch television. Just ignore the team around him.
The Blackhawks only fully embraced the tank this past season. They finally traded Patrick Kane and lost Jonathan Toews for the whole season due to injury. With Bedard, they now have the beginnings of a new core to replace those two titans of hockey. The rebuild is far from over, but it should be a little more entertaining with Bedard on the team.
