Connor Bedard's All-Star replacement may shock you

Published January 7, 2024 at 4:55 PM
As a result of Brendan Smith's hit on Connor Bedard, Connor Bedard recently suffered a fractured jaw.

Given how much of a bottom-dwelling team they were last year, the team has had to rethink who will represent them at the All-Star Game.


It seemed all right this year as star rookie Connor Bedard was set to make his first All-Star appearance, until the New Jersey Devils game.

Jason Dickinson will replace Bedard at the All-Star Game, as, based on Daily's line combinations, he is now the team's 2nd line center in the wake of Bedard's injury.

In 39 games this season, Dickinson has experienced a career revival, much like Max Domi and Andreas Athanasiou who have benefited from Luke Richardson's coaching style.

He has scored 13 goals and provided 6 assists in 39 games this season, totaling 19 points.

In 2022-2023 Dickinson posted his first 30-point season with the team and seems determined to be as successful if not more this year, as he gets to experience his first All-Star game nod.
