In breaking news, this NHL insider just revealed some massive news regarding Connor Bedard's return from injury, and it could be sooner than previously expected.

Insider Reveals Bedard May Return Sooner than Expected



Connor Bedard has been urgently awaiting the greenlight to return to hockey, as made clear in the team's tasking of Nick Foligno to police the young superstar from pushing himself too hard in his return to play. Bedard has been seen on the ice already, however, he is still a long way from his expected return timeline of 6-8 weeks from his jaw surgery.





However, insider Charlie Roumeliotis has just made a shocking prediction that Bedard will return a week early from his original timeline. Roumeliotis has predicted that Bedard will return against the Vancouver Canucks on February 13th.

"I'm going to go with February 13 against Vancouver. The Blackhawks have three days off in between [games] and I believe that Vancouver game would be five weeks and one day from the surgery. I still believe Connor is going to be ahead of schedule. Oh, and by the way, the team he grew up rooting for, so that's my target date for him."


While Bedard is making some significant progress towards his return, this would mean he would be back a full week ahead of schedule. the Blackhawks are likely in no rush to get Bedard back on the ice since they are falling out of contention for the playoffs and Bedard is their future.

We will see how he progresses as more details on his return are revealed.
