Canadian NHL Team Owner Confronts Connor Bedard Following Corey Perry Controversy

As we mentioned last night, a rather disheartening incident involving Connor Bedard and several journalists covering the Winnipeg Jets occurred Saturday morning.

Despite the fact that the Blackhawks' forward seemed clearly unwilling to comment on the false rumors regarding Corey Perry and his mother, the journalists continued to insist in order to get a response from number 98.

However, it has been learned in the last few hours that the owner of the Jets, Mark Chipman, personally went onto the opposing team's bus to apologize to the young sensation. He was also annoyed by the way the journalists treated the rookie during his first visit to Winnipeg and wanted to make amends.

"Darren Pang stated during the Blackhawks game broadcast that the Jets' owner made a significant gesture. He boarded the Hawks' bus to personally apologize to Connor Bedard for the persistent media questions from Winnipeg about the fabricated rumors in the Corey Perry situation." - Jeff Agrest



Wow! It's very rare for an owner to go to such lengths, but we absolutely must commend him for this action, showing great class towards the Blackhawks' forward.

Hopefully, this issue will finally be resolved, and the top overall pick in the last draft can fully focus on his game without having to respond to such unnecessary questions.
