Today, before the Blackhawks' 6PM puck drop at the United Center, Connor Bedard wore a Chicago Blackhawks jersey with the Captaincy badge for the first time, giving a hint about the team's future leadership.

Bedard showed up at the game wearing an old Chris Chelios jersey, showing respect for past team leaders as tonight is Chelios' jersey retirement ceremony.


With the Chicago Blackhawks in a rebuilding phase and no current captain, speculation arises about Bedard's potential as a future leader, much like Connor McDavid did in Edmonton once he arrived and made a major impact.


His confident demeanor while wearing the Chelios' captain jersey suggests readiness for potential leadership roles ahead.


If all goes as expected, Bedard could follow Jonathan Toews as the next Blackhawks captain, a role known for its significant responsibility and high expectations.
