With tonight's draft lottery, the team to draft Connor Bedard first overall in the 2023 draft has been revealed. Bedard is considered a generational talent, a franchise cornerstone and for one of the teams that tanked this season, it'll all be worth it.

According to tonight's draft lottery results, the team with the first overall pick in the 2023 draft is the Chicago Blackhawks..

Bedard, 17, has been in the spotlight for years now, gradually showing he's too good for the western hockey league since he was granted exceptional status. In 57 games this season he scored 71 goals and added 72 assists for 143 total points.
