Throughout the league, there are many prospect showcases that take place right before training camp.

Many of the discussions around these rookie camps have been about Connor Bedard and the season he may have.

His first unofficial game would see Bedard record a Hat-Trick against the St. Louis Blues. Despite his exceptional performance, he wasn't the only one who had a stellar game Saturday night.

On the same night, Columbus Blue Jackets, third-round pick Adam Fantilli scored a hat-trick as well. Moreover, he outscored Bedard with five points.

Against Detroit Red Wings prospects, Fantilli's first goal sparked the rally to score 7 goals in the second period.

As his last goal, Fantilli would score an empty netter to complete his hat-trick.

A 10-goal performance by the Blue Jacket gave Fantilli 5 points, which was one more than Bedard, who had 4 points.

A great battle against the two rookies on their rebuilding teams will be exciting to watch as these two continue to develop in the NHL.
