Connor Bedard recieved the most goals by a Canadian at the World Juniors.
Connor Bedard, the 17-year-old phenom from Burnaby, British Columbia, tallied his seventh goal of the tournament against Austria on Tuesday. This means he is now tied with Connor McDavid and Brayden Schenn for the most goals by a Canadian player in a single World Juniors tournament.
He was also named one of Canada’s three best players of the game. Connor Bedard, who was born in 2004, is the youngest player to ever be named to Team Canada’s World Juniors roster and the first 2000-born player to score a goal at the tournament.
He has made history yet again with his seventh goal and is now the record-holder for the most goals by a Canadian at the World Juniors. Connor Bedard is only the second Canadian to hit double digits in World Juniors action, and he now holds the record for most goals scored by a Canadian.
Connor Bedard’s record-breaking goal was an absolute beauty that showcased both his skill and hockey IQ. Connor managed to score the goal with ease despite being outnumbered as he skated up the ice. Connor has certainly been a force to be reckoned with during this World Juniors tournament, and his record-breaking performance will go down in history as one of the greatest accomplishments by a Canadian at the international junior level.
Connor Bedard’s performance in the 2023 IIHF World Junior Championship is remarkable and he will go down in history as one of Canada’s greatest players to ever take part in the tournament. His hard work, dedication, and passion for hockey have paid off and he will be remembered as a record-holder for many years to come.
