If there’s one generational thing about Connor Bedard the Blackhawks should take with the No. 1 draft pick, it’s the roast he delivered to NHL analyst Paul Bissonnette live on TV. national.
On Monday, Bedard joined the “NHL on TNT” pre-game crew for a chat ahead of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals in Las Vegas.
When host Liam McHugh asked Bedard what it was like to sit on an all-star panel with Wayne Gretzky and Henrik Lundqvist, the 17-year-old released an all-time tweet out of nothing.
“It’s pretty crazy,” Bedard said. “I’m super grateful. Like, the NHL doing this is amazing for me and the other three prospects to come and see some really great players on this panel…and Biz is there too.”
Everyone let out a warm chuckle.
The jab was also internet endorsed, quickly going viral.
In a sport where its stars aren’t quite known for their off-ice charisma (I’ve had Manila records with more personality than Connor McDavid), it seems Bedard could be a game-changer for the league at more ‘a title.
