Canada celebrates a new hero. The miraculous talent broke Gretzky’s record

He thus surpassed the record of the best hockey player of all time, Wayne Gretzki, who set a hat-trick against Czechoslovakia in the 16 years at the World Championships in the Twenties when he won Canada 9: 3. But even at this age he could not score four goals in one duel on the world stage.

“It’s wonderful to hear your name next to someone like Gretzky, of course. Whenever you get such honors, it sounds completely crazy and unbelievable. But on the other hand, it’s only the second game of the tournament, I don’t want to fly in the clouds. I don’t think I’m going to score 2,800 points in the NHL now, “the young man rejoiced after the game.

Bedard became only the sixth hockey player to manage to score four goals in one duel in a jersey with a maple leaf. He joined the ranks of such names as Mario Lemieux (MSJ 1983), Simon Gagne (1999), Brayden Schenn (2011), Taylor Raddysh (2017) and Max Comtois (2019).

However, the record for the junior championship is still held by the Swede Ola Rosander, who scored six goals in one match in 1987.

“All honor to Connor. We try to urge the boys to improve. But Connor doesn’t need my help once he’s got a puck on a hockey stick and is in the offensive period, “said Canadian coach Dave Cameron.

“But I scored most of the goals by just standing in front of the goal and putting a hockey stick in there. It was pretty happy. When you play with such teammates, it makes the match much easier, “Bedard refused with humility.
