The Daily: Bedard Shows Us What’s Coming; Raymond Update

Connor Bedard’s four goals for Canada in his first two games at the World Championships is Bedard showing us what’s coming up the road.

That’s the take from Chicago Hockey Now’s Nate Brown.

“The World Championships are waking everyone back up to the reality of what Bedard is as a player,” Brown wrote.

Denmark and Great Britain don’t represent top-flight competition at the World Championships. But when you see Bedard playing with Canada’s talented squad it’s easy to see that this young player will quickly be among the NHL’s top five  performers.

Bedard is still only 18, two months removed from his 19th birthday.

“For a kid who led all rookie scorers with 61 points (22-39) and is likely the Calder Trophy winner as well,” Brown wrote, “saying that he can be better is an awfully frightening thought for opponents.”

Red Wings In Case You Missed It

Lucas Raymond says he is thrilled to be playing with a collection of world-class players for Sweden at the World Championships. He has picked up where he left off in Detroit.

An injury knocked Red Wings goalie Alex Lyon out of the World Championships. He was hurt during USA’s win against Germany. The details of his injury were not provided. He flew back to the U.S. to have it checked out.

Nate Danielson’s play late in the season and in the WHL playoffs is demonstrating that he many be closer to the NHL than we realize.
