Connor Bedard Creates NHL History With Ideal Assist Against Red Wings

Connor Bedard Creates NHL History With Wonderful Assist Against Red Wings

On Thursday, Connor Bedard tied the team record for the longest road point streak by a rookie and added another outstanding accomplishment to his Calder Trophy resume.

Lukas Reichel scored his second goal of the season in the first period after the Chicago Blackhawks forward made a brilliant feed to him.

With a goal or an assist in seven consecutive road games, Bedard has equaled Darryl Sutter, who set the record 43 years ago. Connor Bedard is now tied with Sidney Crosby, Steve Yzerman, and Sylvain Turgeon for the second-longest road point streaks in NHL history by a player who is 18 years of age or younger. With a 16-game rookie point streak in 2013–14, Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon stands alone.

In 21 games this season, Bedard has already surpassed all rookies in points (18) and goals (10).

Among players who are eighteen years of age or younger, he became the third-fastest player in NHL history last week when he scored 10 goals.
