The Daily: The Blackhawks’ Birthday Gift to Connor Bedard

The Chicago Blackhawks gave Connor Bedard a heck of an 18th birthday to remember. While some kids purchase lottery tickets, the May 8 Draft Lottery put the Blackhawks in the spot to draft a generational talent.

Bedard put pen to paper and inked his entry-level deal with the Blackhawks on Monday.

Now it all begins. In what was anticipated and will provide the NHL a bonafide superstar in one of the league’s best markets, Bedard and the Blackhawks begin their journey together to reclaiming their place as contenders.

The rebuild isn’t quite over yet, but the end is certainly beginning.
