Connor Bedard is a Canadian ice hockey player. He currently plays as a center for the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League (WHL) and is considered one of the top prospects for the 2023 NHL Entry Draft.

Since then, he has been noted for his impressive offensive skills and hockey IQ, earning him recognition as one of the top young talents in the sport. With his natural talent and drive, Bedard is poised to make an impact at the next level and is expected to be a top pick in the upcoming NHL draft.
