Vancouver Canucks Take A Shot At Hometown Boy Connor Bedard

The Vancouver Canucks are on their way to Chicago for a special game against the Blackhawks featuring the talented young superstar and Vancouver native Connor Bedard. Bedard will be facing his hometown team at the United Center for the first time since joining the NHL.

The Canucks, aware of this unique connection, decided to have a bit of good-natured fun ahead of the matchup.

The Canucks shared a series of photos showcasing their fans enjoying themselves at the United Center in Chicago. The fourth and final photo cleverly included Bedard himself, playfully referencing his childhood support for the Canucks.

While Bedard may have grown up cheering for the Vancouver Canucks, this adds an interesting twist to the game, as the young Blackhawks star is likely to be extra motivated to secure a win against his hometown team today.
