Ref Helps Connor Bedard Avoid Embarrassing Rookie Mistake After Penalty
BY SKY NOVEMBER 13, 2023 (3:54 PM)
As this year's top draft pick, Bedard has been making waves recently. In Thursday's faceoff against the Lightning, he displayed his prowess, accumulating four points with two goals and two assists. The momentum continued into Sunday's clash with the Panthers, where he showcased his skills with two more goals.
However, even rising stars experience their fair share of hiccups. During the game against the Panthers, Bedard encountered a minor setback in the first period.
Penalized and skating toward the box, he needed a gentle reminder from referee Jean Hebert on where the penalty box was.
Bedard, resilient as ever, quickly rebounded from this momentary lapse. In the same period, he redeemed himself with a standout goal, skillfully taking the puck from a Panthers defender and burying it in the top corner of the net from a challenging angle.
This impressive play overshadowed any earlier confusion with the penalty box, leaving a lasting impression from Sunday's game.
