Connor Bedard's Rookie Gaffe

In the lead-up to what promises to be a memorable NHL debut, Connor Bedard, the young prodigy, has already made headlines for an unexpected reason.

In a light-hearted yet rule-breaking moment, Bedard took to the ice for his rookie lap during warm-ups without wearing his helmet, violating NHL regulations.

Seems like he's not too concerned about that $2,500 fine, Gary.

As a result of this transgression, Bedard faces a fine of $2,500. It's likely, given the minor nature of the infraction, that the Chicago Blackhawks, his team, will shoulder the penalty.

This incident serves as a reminder of the NHL's rule, introduced after the 2019-20 season, that mandates players to wear helmets during warm-ups, similar to the introduction of the NHL visor rule.
