For all the non playoff teams around the NHL, many general managers have their eye on Connor Bedard. The prize in the upcoming NHL draft is a generational talent that many believe could be even better than Connor McDavid.

I'm talking about 17 year-old hockey phenom Connor Bedard. Bedard has recently lead Team Canada to back-to-back World Junior gold medals, shattering records along the way.

Bedard's popularity has gotten so big that Wednesday night fans sold out the Saddledome, home of the Calgary Flames, and 19,259 seats to watch a junior hockey game between the Calgary Hitman vs Connor Bedard and the Regina Pats.

Bedard would score the Pats first goal of the night on a perfect snipe most NHL goalies would of missed.



Bedard would also score the game winner in a Shootout leading the Pats to a 6-5 comeback win.
