The Chicago Blackhawks are facing criticism after forward Collin Blackwell delivered a hard hit on Nathan MacKinnon, one of the NHL's top players.

While physical plays are common in hockey, concerns are growing that if the Blackhawks continue targeting star players, other teams may retaliate against Chicago's emerging talent, Connor Bedard.
This isn't the first time Bedard has been in this situation. Earlier in the season against the Florida Panthers, he narrowly avoided a serious injury during a boarding incident.
Seeking payback, the Panthers focused on Bedard, highlighting the potential consequences of the Blackhawks' aggressive style.
A Blackhawks fan shared worries, saying, "If Blackwell thinks it's ok to be running star players, folks are gonna start lining up Bedard." Another fan recalled a similar incident against the Florida Panthers, where retaliation against Bedard was met with a strong response.
As the Blackhawks continue their season, questions linger about the team's approach and the potential risks it poses to their young star, Connor Bedard, as opposing teams may not hesitate to target him in response to perceived aggression.
The team may want to consider bringing in an enforcer to protect Bedard.
