  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Stands out in loss

    Bedard scored a power-play goal and added two assists in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    One of Bedard's helpers also came on the power play, and he had a second goal overturned when the play was reviewed for being offside. The 18-year-old phenom has picked up right where he left off prior to his broken jaw, amassing six points over three games since his return. He's up to 17 goals, 22 assists, 10 power-play points, 128 shots on net and a minus-24 rating through 42 appearances.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Two points in Saturday's win

    Bedard produced a goal and an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Senators.

    He also chipped in a team-high five shots on net, two hits, a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating. It was Bedard's first multi-point performance of 2024, as the dynamic rookie missed six weeks due to a broken jaw, but the 18-year-old has three points in two games since his return and more big fantasy nights should come soon enough. Bedard remains the Calder Trophy favorite despite the missed time, with 16 goals and 36 points through his first 41 NHL contests.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Notches assist in return

    Bedard (jaw) logged an assist, four shots on goal, two hits and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

    Bedard set up Philipp Kurashev for the Blackhawks' lone tally Thursday. This was Bedard's first game since Jan. 5 -- he missed 14 contests with a broken jaw. The 18-year-old had gone three games without a point prior to the injury. He's at 15 goals, 19 helpers, 122 shots on net, 27 hits and a minus-24 rating through 40 appearances this season. Bedard should continue to see big minutes on the top line as long as he stays healthy.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Ready to return Thursday

    Bedard (jaw) is expected to make his return Thursday against Pittsburgh, per Sportsnet's John Shannon.

    Bedard hasn't played since Jan. 5 because of his jaw injury. The 18-year-old rookie has 15 goals and 33 points in 39 outings in 2023-24. His absence has left a huge hole in Chicago's offense, which has averaged just 1.43 goals per game during Bedard's recovery. Now that Bedard's back, he's likely to serve on the top line and first power-play unit.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Nearing return to practice

    Bedard (jaw) will remain in a non-contact jersey for one more week before starting to practice next Monday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Bedard appears to be right on track for a six-week return to action after undergoing jaw surgery back in January. The rookie phenom was mired in a five-game goal drought prior to getting hurt, registering just one assist and eight shots during his slump.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Out at least six weeks

    The Blackhawks announced Wednesday that Bedard underwent surgery to repair a fractured jaw and will be out for approximately 6-to-8 weeks.

    Bedard suffered the injury during Friday's 4-2 loss to New Jersey. Before getting hurt, Bedard was the frontrunner for the Calder Trophy with 15 goals and 33 points in 39 appearances in 2023-24. Jason Dickinson is likely to play a bigger role for the Blackhawks during Bedard's extended absence.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Lands on IR

    Bedard sustained a fractured jaw Friday against the Devils and was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

    Bedard was hurt after taking a big hit from Brendan Smith early in the first period Friday. The 18-year-old Bedard has 33 points (15 goals, 18 assists) through his first 39 games, though he'd been held to just one helper in his last five contests. With Nick Foligno (finger) also heading to IR, Chicago will need to bring up some reinforcements from the AHL to round out their lineup.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Exits Friday's contest

    Bedard (undisclosed) will not return to Friday's game against the Devils.

    Bedard took a big open-ice hit from Brendan Smith about halfway through the first period and went straight back to the locker room. Bedard logged 3:05 of ice time before suffering the injury. The team should have an update on his status before Sunday's tilt against the Flames. The star rookie has 15 goals and 33 points through 39 games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Helps out on power play

    Bedard registered a power-play assist, two shots on goal and a minus-3 rating in Sunday's 8-1 loss to the Stars.

    Bedard saw a five-game point streak end Friday against the Stars, but he was able to get back on the scoresheet in the rematch. The rookie center finished December with five goals and 10 assists over 15 appearances. He's still leading the rookie points race with 33, including eight on the power play, through 36 outings. Bedard has added 115 shots on net, 21 hits and a minus-19 rating this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Scores both goals in win

    Bedard scored two goals on five shots, added two hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Jets.

    Bedard opened the scoring in the first period and then ripped home the winner 2:15 into overtime. The latter goal was his first NHL overtime marker, though it's fair to assume it won't be his last. This was his third multi-goal effort of the season, and it extended his point streak to five games (three goals, five helpers). The rookie center is up to 15 tallies, 32 points, 110 shots on net, a minus-13 rating, 19 hits and 12 PIM through 34 appearances.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Deals two assists

    Bedard notched two assists, six shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Bedard helped out on both of the Blackhawks' first-period tallies. He also made a pass as part of the build-up to the game-winning goal in the third, but it was three touches before the tally, so he did not receive a point on the play. The 18-year-old has three two-assist efforts as well as one goal over his last five outings. For the year, the rookie sensation has 28 points, 100 shots, 10 PIM and a minus-13 rating through 31 appearances, living up to the hype as the No. 1 overall pick this year.
