Connor Bedard Makes NHL History at the All-Star Game

The Chicago Blackhawks first-overall pick in the last NHL draft has made league history once again. Connor Bedard has taken a title in the record books after being named to the All-Star Game/Weekend.

At 18-years-old and 171 days, Bedard is the youngest player ever to take part in the All-Star festivities. Bedard beats out previous holder Jeff Skinner of the Buffalo Sabres, who was 18 and 259 days when he took part in the All-Star game for the Carolina Hurricanes in 2011.

"Connor Bedard is the youngest player in NHL All-Star Game HISTORY."




Among other records so far, Bedard has already become the youngest player in the Chicago Blackhawks' long history to record a multi-point game.



He's also the youngest player in the Western Hockey League's history to score 50 goals.



I'm sure there will be many more of these types of records to come for Bedard as his NHL career is just getting underway.
