MAJOR: Blackhawks Head Coach Luke Richardson Confirms the Worst for Connor Bedard

Unfortunately for fans of Chicago Blackhawks forward Connor Bedard, the young sensation suffered a serious injury during last night's game against the New Jersey Devils.

Defenseman Brendan Smith was waiting for him in his zone and hit the first overall pick in the last draft solidly. Bedard immediately held his mouth and headed towards the locker room.


The organization then shared the information that number 98 would not return to the game for the match, suggesting bad news.



However, after the game, head coach also reported very worrying information, stating that Bedard will have to undergo examinations upon the team's return to Chicago.

«After the game, Blackhawks coach Luke Richardson said the Blackhawks will know more once Bedard has been examined at home.» - Elliotte Friedman

Normally, this kind of update from the coach does not bode well. Hoping that the 18-year-old prodigy is not too affected by this blow to the head.


Major update:

UPDATE: We have placed Connor Bedard (fractured jaw) and Nick Foligno (fractured left finger) on injured reserve.
