Blackhawks Daily: Booing Bedard; A Former Hawk Prospect Finally Makes the Show



He didn’t really care. In the postseason interview, the 18-year-old shrugged it off and leaned right into it. Chicago Blackhawks phenom Connor Bedard was straight forward.

“Didn’t think about it too much,” Bedard said. “It’s good I guess. Of course, I haven’t done anything yet just starting  but to get that right now is good. I think that makes the game  even more fun. The crowd’s really into it like that. It was good and I enjoy that stuff.”

The booing was odd, likely another case of sour grapes from an organization that felt robbed not winning the lottery. But it’s something that apparently doesn’t faze him.

Meanwhile Matt Tomkins, a former Blackhawks farmhand, has finally reached the pinnacle.

The Hawks’ 7th round pick in 2012 spent a couple seasons overseas but now gets a chance with Tampa Bay.

Definitely a cool thing to see.
