Peter Sullivan: Connor Bedard is elite hockey sense, elite skill, elite everything

Connor Bedard is one of the greatest potentials in the world of hockey. This young player will be on the list of players who will perform at the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship, for the Canadian team. Peter Sullivan of NHL Central Scouting praised this young player and had an interesting comparison.

"He's elite hockey sense, elite skill, elite everything," Peter Sullivan said, as quoted by nhl.com "But when he does get frustrated out there, he's not afraid to give it back, which is a good sign.

I compared him to [Hockey Hall of Famer] Marcel Dionne since he played the same way. Guys didn't want to fool around with [Dionne] because he would go right back at them, and yet he didn't have a lot of penalty minutes."

Great talent

Sullivan immediately saw something special in him. It is clear that this is one of the greatest talents and he will show it. "Skill wise he's not only quick but has two or three gears and it's legit," Sullivan said.

"I mean, the most famous player that had five or six gears was Bobby Orr, and this is what [Bedard] has. He's got a gear that can go from 1-to-60 in two seconds; he's that special a player." Alan Millar hopes that the team of 25 players will show their quality and achieve success in the competition.

They have huge talents in the team that could go all the way. “We are excited to unveil the 25 players who will represent Canada at the World Juniors, as we believe we have assembled a team that will give us the best chance to win a gold medal on home ice,” said Millar in a statement.

“We know this group of players and staff will represent our country with pride and embrace the opportunity to compete in a unique summer event in Edmonton”.
