We know Connor Bedard to be one of the most superstitious players in the NHL. Before and after periods of the game, he only wants to handle his hockey twig so he is very careful and detailed in handling it.

Recently, a reporter asked if he had forgotten his stick, apparently not having done his homework on Bedard.

Before and after games, Bedard leaves his stick against the wall to ensure no one touches it.

As a successful player he has habits, and despite their awkwardness, those habits are part of his practice.

Since he scored 143 points doing it in the WHL, it makes sense why he kept doing it.
