Canadiens Prospect Outperforming Connor Bedard in the CHL

Published January 27, 2023 at 10:10 PM
Connor Bedard is having nothing short of a historical season. With the Regina Pats of the WHL , he's scoring at nearly 2.5 points per game, among the likes of Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid.

For Canadiens prospect Riley Kidney, however, 2.5 points per game is an easy effort. Since being traded to the Gatineau Olympiques of the QMJHL, Kidney has scored 22 points in eight games, good for 2.75 points per game.

There are a lot of question marks around how Kidney's game will translate to the NHL, especially considering his reliance on perimeter play, but with point production like this, we know Kidney is special.

Whether Kent Hughes decides to trade him for other assets, or try to make him fit in the NHL, these junior numbers will always shine out in his stat sheet!
