WHL PHENOM CONNOR BEDARD DEALING WITH SUDDEN LOSS OF FAMILY MEMBER

Apr 7, 2021 à 13h14      TIM TUCKER
Connor Bedard, the 15-year-old who was granted exceptional status to play in the Western Hockey League and is currently on a tear there, is mourning the loss of a special person in his life. According to a statement from his team, the Regina Pats, Bedard's grandfather Garth was killed Tuesday in a car accident near Sicamous, B.C.

"We know how close Connor was with his grandfather, who was one of Connor's biggest fans. Garth was incredibly proud of Connor and took great joy in his grandson's passion for hockey and even more so in the person he has become," said the team.

"Connor will remain with the Pats for his final WHL game this season on Friday, April 9 before returning home to North Vancouver, B.C. on Saturday, April 10 to be with his family."

Bedard currently has 10 goals and 26 points in just 14 games so far this season and is absolutely wowing anyone who watches him play. It's very unfortunate this had to happen in the midst of such a high point in his life. Bedard is the first player ever to receive exceptional status to play in the WHL and just the seventh in CHL history. The list includes names like Connor McDavid, John Tavares, and Aaron Ekblad.

Along with the Regina Pats Hockey Club, we extend our sincere condolences to Bedard and his entire family.
