The legacy of Connor Bedard continues to grow. The Regina Pats star raked in all of the hardware Saturday at the 2023 CHL Awards in Kamloops, BC, becoming the first junior player ever to win Top Scorer, the David Branch Player of the Year, and CHL Top Prospect in one season.

Lots of silverware for his trophy case. Bedard put up eye-popping numbers in the WHL this season, scoring 71 goals and tallying 72 assists in 57 games for a total of 143 points. The projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft also made his presence felt in the playoffs, scoring 10 and supplying 10 assists in seven outings before Regina bowed out in the first round.

Bedard is proud of what he’s done to this point, but this is just the start of his prestigious career. Via TSN:

“I’m still young and have a lot I wanna do in my hockey career,” he said when asked of his journey. “But like I said, I’ve just been pretty fortunate to be able to play in some of these tournaments and leagues and experience these things that I’ve gotten to experience.

“It’s been a hell of a ride so far and hopefully it continues.”

Bedard is widely expected to be taken by the Chicago Blackhawks later this month, who were awarded the top pick in the recent draft lottery. Many expect the Canadian to be a savior to the franchise, just like Patrick Kane was back in the early 2010s, helping lead them to three Stanley Cups.

Oh, and Connor Bedard was also the first player since Connor McDavid to claim three trophies at the CHL Awards. By the looks of it, he’s going to be one of the greatest players in the NHL in the very near future just like the Edmonton Oilers star.
