Hot off his second gold medal for Canada at the world junior hockey championship last month, Bedard is set to highlight the Kubota CHL/NHL top prospects game on Wednesday night when 40 of the junior hockey league’s top talents will go head-to-head in Langley, B.C.
Matching up against the star centre for the Western Hockey League’s Regina Pats is going to be a mammoth task, said defenceman Oliver Bonk.
“Just do your best,” said the blueliner for the Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights. “You can’t back up too much because he’s going to blow by you, you can’t let him shoot because he’s got a bullet of a shot. So it’s going to be tough, but I’ll do my best.”
