Pucks, Sticks, and Suitcases: The Unbelievable Story of Connor Bedard and His Hockey Equipment on Family Vacations

The upcoming NHL superstar is Connor Bedard. Without dedication and perseverance, he would not have been this good, but this story elevates things to a new level.

Connor Bedard’s love of hockey is evident in every story that has been published about him.

He spends hours every day shooting pucks no matter the weather, and he lives and breathes the sport.

On the Spittin’ Chiclets podcast, a fresh tale has emerged that amplifies the circumstances.

Bedard only accompanied his family on a trip to Hawaii on the understanding that he could carry his hockey bag.

Bedard had to continue shooting pucks even in one of the most tropical locations on the planet!

This level of dedication will make him a fantastic NHL player.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
