Connor Bedard has unfortunately been unable to participate in the NHL All-Star game due to doctor's orders.

However, he will still be a part of the festivities and skills competition. During the event, he had the opportunity to interact with other NHL players, including Sidney Crosby and others.

Recently, Sean McIndoe of The Athletic criticized Bedard and the Chicago Blackhawks.




Despite playing 39 games for the Blackhawks, McIndoe insinuated that Bedard hasn't been playing with legitimate NHL players on the team.

However, this insinuation is disingenuous and paints the Chicago Blackhawks as an AHL team, rather than a rookie team that is stacked with veteran players like Seth Jones and Nick Foligno, who are tasked with leadership.

The team has been a place for many NHL players to rejuvenate their careers.

Bedard has passed to true NHL players on the Blackhawks, but McIndoe seems to have made a snide remark that is an affront to Bedard's highlight reel 1st half of the season.

Bedard has an impressive 33 points, with 15 goals and 18 assists for the season, on an all-around terrible and rebuilding team.

Not to mention, he has gotten his 1st All-Star nod, during his rookie season. McIndoe should try eating crow.
