Bedard Sets NHL Records with Breakout Performance Against the Lightning
BY RYAN HOLLINGSWORTH NOVEMBER 10, 2023 (10:30)
The Blackhawks faced the Tampa Bay Lightning, a team that, by all accounts, should have secured a victory, given their recent back-to-back Stanley Cup wins, making them the favourites against the Blackhawks.
However, the Lightning were missing a crucial element in their game – goaltender Andrei Vasilevsky. In his absence, Jonas Johansson tended the net, and the Blackhawks seized the opportunity, winning the game 5-3.
Bedard contributed two goals and two assists, marking his first multi-point game of his young career. This performance also established a new record for the youngest player in Blackhawks history to achieve a multi-point game of at least three points.
It is widely anticipated that Bedard will continue setting the tone for the Blackhawks, accumulating points and accolades as the team emerges from the basement in the coming years. While this is enjoyable to watch, the team is still navigating a rebuilding phase, which entails more losses as they position themselves for another lottery draft pick.
The Blackhawks' next game is scheduled against the Florida Panthers on Sunday, November 12th, with the game set to begin at 1:00 PM Eastern.
