Connor Bedard played in his first preseason game with the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night, and fans of the Original Six franchise were ready.

So was Bedard, who had two assists in Chicago's 2-1 overtime win over the St. Louis Blues.

"I felt pretty good and comfortable and stuff, but I think I could do a lot better," Bedard said. "I don't know if there was a surprise. Obviously less room, but that's nothing I didn't expect, so just kind of get used to it here."
