As you know, young phenomenon Connor Bedard has been absent for a while now due to a jaw fracture, and just as we were starting to monitor a possible return to play for him, the Blackhawks have just announced worrying news.

An Unexpected Setback for Connor Bedard

His injury does not seem to be healing as quickly as hoped.
Connor Bedard will therefore miss an additional six weeks of play. Ouch.
"He is devastated not to be here and even more so not to play. He is on the right track for recovery, but it will probably take at least another six weeks due to a problem with his bone."

- Luke Richardson

So, the wait for him doubles.
There won't be many games left in his season, and like Connor McDavid in his rookie year, this puts his Rookie of the Year title in doubt.
It's really a shame.
Connor Bedard has just been replaced for the All-Star game scheduled in February in Toronto. (due to this medical unforeseen)
Bedard, 18 years old, 1st overall pick in 2023, has a very solid 33 points (including 15 goals) in 39 games this season with the Chicago Blackhawks.
