Havoc breaks loose as Connor Bedard stands up for injured teammate after cheapshot

In a highly anticipated matchup tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks are facing off against the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, the first period brought a concerning incident as Blackhawks forward Philip Kurashev found himself on the receiving end of a boarding hit by Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev.

Kurashev, who has been dealing with off-season injuries and underwent surgery, is a player the Blackhawks have been closely monitoring. The hope is that he emerges from this incident unscathed.

What stood out in this moment of adversity was the unexpected defender coming to Kurashev's aid none other than the number one overall pick, Connor Bedard. This act underscores Bedard's emerging leadership qualities, and it raises the prospect of him being a potential future captain candidate for the Chicago Blackhawks, a position the team currently lacks.

Bedard's willingness to step up in defense of a teammate, especially as a young player, speaks volumes about his character and potential influence within the team.



As the game progresses, the incident adds an extra layer of intrigue to Bedard's role with the Blackhawks and sparks discussions about the team's future leadership dynamics.
DO YOU THINK CONNOR BEDARD SHOULD BE NAMED CAPTAIN OF THE BLACKHAWKS?
