Connor Bedard Navigates NHL Debut Amidst Controversy

As Connor Bedard, the first overall pick in the NHL draft, readies himself for his debut with the Chicago Blackhawks, he's seeking guidance from some of the game's biggest stars. However, he recently found himself on the receiving end of unsolicited and inappropriate advice from former NHL player Cam Janssen.
Janssen's Inappropriate Remarks
Cam Janssen, a retired NHL player with stints in both the AHL and NHL, co-hosts the "Cam and Strick" podcast alongside Andy Strickland. In a segment from their podcast, Janssen suggested that Bedard should seek the company of an older woman, commonly referred to as a "cougar," to handle his daily needs and personal desires.
Backlash and Online Sharing
These inappropriate comments immediately drew widespread criticism and were deemed disrespectful and offensive by many. Although the segment was eventually deleted from the podcast, a recording found its way onto social media platforms, further fueling outrage.
Janssen's Background
Cam Janssen, now 39 years old, boasts a professional career that includes 336 NHL games split between the New Jersey Devils and St. Louis Blues. Despite his experience in the hockey world, his remarks about Bedard's personal life were unwelcome and considered highly inappropriate.
Focusing on Bedard's NHL Journey
As Connor Bedard embarks on his NHL career, the spotlight should rightfully be on his promising talent and potential contributions to the Chicago Blackhawks. Inappropriate comments from others within the hockey community should not overshadow the excitement surrounding Bedard's debut.
