Connor Bedard's is the talk of the town around the hockey world.

The future first overall pick in the upcoming draft is rewriting history at the World Junior Championship. His performances have been absolutely sensational as he has almost single-handedly dragged Team Canada to this year's semi finals.

Rarely has there been such a dominance of an undrafted player at this tournament, compared to all the other participants, who are mostly a year or two older than Bedard.

The player who is expected to be the next big thing in the NHL is producing at a rate never before seen in the history of Team Canada, but also in the history of the WJC.


He is even threatening a record that was never thought to be beaten, that of legend Peter Forsberg. At the 1993 WJC, the Swede concluded his tournament with an unimaginable 31 points.

As mentioned by RDS journalist Stéphane Leroux, the former Colorado Avalanche star had 22 points in his first five games. He had nine more in the last two games of the tournament.


Bedard had 21 points in his first five games. It seems unlikely that he'll be able to score nine in his next two games.

Where Bedard's performance becomes even more amazing is the fact that he's doing this at the age of 17, Forsberg was 19 at the time of his record.

It's just incredible!

Although it is rather impossible for Bedard to participate in this tournament again, as he is expected to play an important role in the NHL next year, the most amazing thing is that he still technically has two more years to participate in the WJC.
