Connor Bedards Mom Breaks Silence on Having Fans Try to Enter Their Home

Connor Bedard is a rising star in the world of hockey, widely regarded as one of the most promising young talents in the game. The 17-year-old forward hails from North Vancouver, British Columbia, and has already made a name for himself as a top prospect in the Western Hockey League, as well as in the World-Junior Championship this past year.

Bedard bursted onto the scene in the 2020-21 season, becoming the first player in WHL history to be granted exceptional player status and allowed to play as a 15-year-old. He quickly made an impact, tallying 28 points in 15 games for the Regina Pats.

Known for his exceptional skill and scoring ability, Bedard has drawn comparisons to some of the game's greats, including Connor McDavid and Sidney Crosby. He possesses a powerful shot and excellent vision on the ice, making him a threat from all areas of the offensive zone.

With great skill and popularity sometimes comes awful situations, and Connor Bedard's mom has personally spoken out on their recent disasters:

"There are very often people surrounding our house and waiting outside, then they photograph us as soon as we step outside. One day, someone even came through the back of our property, accessed the yard, and started screaming for Connor. And I would say that all this happens more frequently since the last Junior World Championship.

Recently, I had to turn off my cell phone for about ten days because I was receiving too many messages. It was uncontrollable! I've never been used to that, you know? And it's now almost impossible to go to the grocery store or the mall with Connor without being recognized."

Should the Bedard family be getting security for their home, it sounds like it!?
