16-year-old forward Connor Bedard dazzled the world of hockey at the last World Junior Championship. Despite the cancellation of the tournament, the young man scored four goals and an assist in just two games.

Back with the Regina Pats in the WHL, the forward was playing his first game since his short stay with Team Canada on Saturday night.

In the middle of the second period, Bedard made a feint against the opposing defender before outshooting the goalkeeper with a sharp shot. He also gave his team a 3-2 lead.

Just a few seconds later, the 16-year-old was picking up his second goal of the game as he scored an excellent two-on-one.

Do you think he had finished his work night? Absolutely not! At the start of the third engagement, when the score was 4-4, Bedard went solo in the opposing zone against four opponents and still found a way to complete his hat trick.

The crazy game was not over when the two teams ended up in overtime, tied 6-6. Who played the heroes? That's right, Connor Bedard.

The best hope for the 2023 NHL Entry Draft ended his night of work with four goals in a 7-6 victory for the Regina Pats.

In 25 games, the young man now has 28 points in his second junior season. So Bedard seems to be appointment to be a star in the National Hockey League.
