Connor Bedard's return is welcome news for head coach Luke Richardson.

As well as Nick Foligno and Tyler Johson returning from injury, others are on the way as well.

Earlier this week, Andreas Athanasiou resumed skating, so the team will soon have more NHLers back.


According to Richardson, this will increase team competition within the group, and this will drive them to do their very best.



It won't be necessary for players to be flashy or create highlight reel plays to keep or win a spot, he said.

The focus isn't solely on scoring points, but rather on being a leader, performing well on each shift, and demonstrating the level of motivation necessary to succeed.

This is a great message for a team, which lets players know expectations moving forward.

Considering how hamstrung Richardson and the Blackhawks are by injuries, he has done a great job managing talent.

With a 14-35-3 record, the Blackhawks will be looking to improve that record tonight by defeating the playoff-bound Vancouver Canucks.
