Connor Bedard – a teenage hockey player who’s cut out to become an NHL superstar – will be taking on the Kelowna Rockets and Kamloops Blazers later in November.

The 17-year-old has 157 points in 92 WHL games with the Regina Pats. He is considered a 'generational talent' and is expected to be a superstar when he plays for the National Hockey League. This is your chance to see him before then.

Earlier this year at the 2022 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, Bedard was the youngest player – by well over a year – to be part of Canada's gold-winning team.

He will be eligible to be selected in the NHL Entry Draft in June and is expected to go first overall, according to NHL.com.

Bedard and the Pats will be at Prospera Place in Kelowna Nov. 29 and at the Sandman Centre in Kamloops Nov. 30. These will be the only matchups the Pats have against the Rockets and Blazers this season. Tickets to Rockets games can be purchased through selectyourtickets.com and the Blazers use Ticketmaster.
