The 2023 NHL Draft has been hyped up for years. Mainly because of the highly talented forward Connor Bedard, expected to go 1st overall in the upcoming draft.

There are likely to be several teams prepared to tank for Bedard in the 2022-23 season to increase their odds at drafting the highly praised player.

The now 17-year-old has dominated everywhere he has played. Hockey fans alike began to take notice when he was awarded a spot on the WHL's Regina St. Pats at only 16-years-old. This is where he combined for 63 goals and 128 points in just 77 games played between two seasons.
