Bedard Stands Up For Teammate After Questionable Hit By Sergachev

Connor Bedard is going beyond what Blackhawks fans have expected for the young superstar. While the hype regarding Bedard's scoring ability was huge, no one expected him to be a guy who was willing to get his hands dirty to stick up for his teammates.

However, that is exactly what Bedard did last night against the Lightning. After his teammate was hit from behind into the boards by Mikhail Sergachev, Bedard was the first person to stick up for his teammate.
