Bedard has quickly become one of the biggest stars currently in the NHL, with one of the largest rises in popularity for any rookie in a professional sports league. After being drafted first overall in the 2023 draft, he has captured the hearts of fans on the ice and the eyes of the media in various interviews with esteemed names in hockey.

After recovering from surgery for a broken jaw caused by New Jersey Devils defenseman Brendan Smith, this 18-year-old has made huge strides in his comeback and has continued to work hard to make the Blackhawks a standout team. Even during this recuperation period, his head coach Luke Richardson joked about how he could not be kept from working on his game after practices were done for the day, though still making sure to follow medical guidelines.
"Really? He's out there? He's been begging, and I think— I think they said it's okay. He's not allowed to take a slapshot, so he's not allowed to really clench, so... if they see that they might pull the— pull the rug out from underneath him. I think he's just a year in, and you know, it'll be good for him to get moving. He just has to be very careful."

"The Hawks can't keep Bedard off the ice. After practice, he's back on the ice with Samuel Savoie"

"Think it was also reported that he was on the ice before practice, left during practice and returned right after practice. 🌟👍"

Beyond his unbeatable work ethic, Bedard further demonstrated his upstanding character after an interaction with a fan became a viral sensation.

After a major update on the player's injury, Bedard was able to return to the ice on February 15th in a game against Pittsburgh. Since then, he has had some minor mistakes, but more successes than failures overall, by a longshot. Yet, his gameplay would only be a potential near-match for the type of person he revealed himself to be.
As pre-game warmups were taking place, Bedard took the chance to give a young fan a puck from over the glass. Ensuring this interaction went smoothly, Bedard remained in front of the glass, tapping it to signal to everyone which fan was to keep this token. Given this wholesome interaction, it is no wonder he has quickly become one of the most beloved players currently in the NHL.

Though the Chicago Blackhawks are currently one of the worst-performing teams, they are lucky to have a player who will surely help them in their rebuilding period. It will be fascinating to see what lies in store for this young star's future.
