You’re reading it right. Connor Bedard and buddy Andrew Cristall play in an In-Line hockey league during the summer. The Chicago Blackhawks prospect taken #1 overall is mixing it up on the “Great Guys” along with fellow NHL’er Kent Johnson. Washington Hockey Now’s Jared Serre caught up with Capitals prospect Cristall who had this to say about the league:
“There’s a lot of great players on that team,” Cristall said Monday, rattling off names of the North Shore Inline Hockey League’s Great Guys. “Connor Bedard and Kent Johnson, who plays in Columbus. We just added Jake Christiansen, who’s also an NHL player, so that was pretty good. I play with my brother as well.”
Can’t imagine it’s tough finding subs for the Great Guys if they need someone at the 11th hour.
Blackhawks In Case You Missed It
- Lukas Reichel is the next Blackhawks prospect up to become full time. Turns out the sky’s the limit for him.
- Tony Amonte and Jeremy Roenick weren’t only American legends–they were Blackhawks legends, too
- Samuel Savoie may be quick with a joke. But his opponents aren’t finding his game a laughing matter
