The Chicago Blackhawks drafted Connor Bedard at the last draft and it completely changed the franchise.

A new information was put to light on Twitter about a link between Bedard and Chicago long before the draft.


Family Ties to the Hawks

An interesting nugget of information has come to our attention. It turns out that Connor Bedard's great-great-uncle, James, was a former player for the Blackhawks.

He skated for the team from 1949 to 1951, recording a goal and an assist in his tenure with the Hawks.

With the recent departures of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, Chicago's upcoming season was expected to be rather uneventful.

But the winds of change blew in their favor when they secured the top pick in the draft, selecting Connor Bedard.

With Bedard on board, the Blackhawks now have a real shot at causing a surprise next season.

Do you think the Hawks will make the playoffs next season?
