As you may be aware, there is currently immense enthusiasm surrounding the young talent of Connor Bedard. While his rising stardom carries benefits, it also brings with it certain drawbacks.

Melanie Bedard, Connor's mother, has made a troubling remark that illustrates the extent to which things can escalate.

"There are very often people surrounding our house and waiting outside, then they photograph us as soon as we step outside. One day, someone even came through the back of our property, accessed the yard, and started screaming for Connor. And I would say that all this happens more frequently since the last Junior World Championship."

"Recently, I had to turn off my cell phone for about ten days because I was receiving too many messages. It was uncontrollable! I've never been used to that, you know? And it's now almost impossible to go to the grocery store or the mall with Connor without being recognized."



It's concerning to observe the significant number of fans who have knowledge of Connor Bedard's private address, with some potentially harassing him on his own property. Melanie acknowledges that the majority of individuals are well-intentioned, but it's reasonable to assume that others could be quite distressing.

Our hope is that the Bedard family can soon find some solace, particularly within the confines of their own home. It's possible that matters may settle down after the draft has concluded.
