Bedard Gives Emotional Tribute

After the Giants announced the passing of Sean Murray former Regina Pats star and current Chicago Blackhawk Connor Bedard responded with a tribute to Murray.


While Bedard and Murray likely have limited interactions if any since their timelines did not match the gesture is still heartwarming. Bedard competed against the Vancouver Giants for several years and probably has a good relationship with several people affected by this news.

Our thoughts will continue to be with Sean Murray's family, friends, and all those affected by this tragic loss.
