When asked why he chose it, Bedard explained,
"I just picked it when I was like 6 years old, liked it, and no one had it at the time in the NHL, so I thought that was kind of cool. Yeah, I think when I was young, drew the higher number, and it stuck with me."



It's a simple yet meaningful choice that has become a part of Bedard's identity in the NHL.
