Connor Bedard is like no other first overall pick we've seen in years. He's incredible mature, and very hard on himself. Maybe too hard on himself, per his head coach.

Bedard Needs to Change His Attitude To Have Sustainable Success in the NHL



There is no question that Connor Bedard loves the game of hockey. He's become a master of the craft, with a shot that may already be the best in the NHL and hockey IQ that sets him apart.

However, he is very hard on himself, and doesn't take losses well. In the NHL, especially on a rough Blackhawks roster, he'll be seeing a lot of them.

'There's Enough of That'



Blackhawks head coach Luke Richardson has finally addressed his attitude, and has revealed what he has to do to fix them:

"[Bedard is] hard on himself, so we're going to have to lighten him up and make sure he enjoys these times. Because wins in the NHL are hard to come by - and once it starts for real, they're really hard to come by. We have to make sure we enjoy the night and have a little fun when you win a game.

A couple of those hiccups, [like] when we missed an open net or fell down on a 2-on-0, we have to make some humor out of that and make it fun to come to the rink the next day, not tense and grinding the stick. There's enough of that."


Clearly Bedard will have to adjust his attitude, but the base of an incredible hockey player is there. It is good to be hard on yourself, but you have to laugh at the little mistakes!

After all - hockey is still a game.
