is one of the league's brightest new stars. When he gets hit his teammates take that as a personal call-out. This was exactly the scenario that happened today.
Bedard Leveled During An Electric GameConnor Bedard
is having quite possibly the best game of his young NHL career. Through two periods Bedard has a pair of goals including a highlight reel goal after a takeaway.
His outstanding performance was interrupted by a huge hit laid by Dmitry Kulikov
Bedard took a hard hit from Kulikov
This led to a major response from Blackhawks veteran forward Nick Foligno
Foligno Drops The Gloves To Protect Bedard
After the massive hit, Blackhawks forward Nick Foligno
immediately stepped in to protect his teammate.
Foligno shows that no one will be able to get away with trying to bully Bedard. This was not the first time in the game that Bedard had been hit hard though. Earlier in the game Panthers star Matthew Tkachuk
got into a shoving match with Bedard as well.
Despite the many attempts by the Panthers to throw Connor Bedard
off of his game, he is having the best game of his career. Maybe his play along with the response from Foligno will deter teams from trying this approach in the future.
WAS THE HIT BY DMITRY KULIKOV DIRTY?
