Connor Bedard has made history already in his short time in the NHL. Television viewership has never been higher in the U.S. than the games Bedard has played. Now he has arguably his biggest challenge in the NHL ahead of him in Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Both Connor Bedard and Auston Matthews are off to ridiculous starts to the NHL season. Now the two will play one another as they look to keep their respective offensive brilliance up.

Auston Matthews has begun the year with back-to-back hat tricks. He is now looking to set history with 3 games in a row with a hat trick.

Bedard Reveals His True Thoughts On Matthews



In a media availability today Connor Bedard was asked about Auston Matthews and was very complimentary in his answer.

"He's someone that I feel like pioneered a certain shot. He's got 6 [goals] in 2 [games], so he's doing something right. Ever since he came into the league, he's been someone I've loved to watch...so I'm excited to go against him."


Bedard will now look to outshine a star that he grew up watching once again after beating Sidney Crosby in his first career game. It will be interesting to see if they are matched up on the ice together as Bedard and Crosby were or if they will each see other lines.
