It was clear that the Blackhawks organization was holding its collective breath after witnessing their future superstar Connor Bedard go down to a jaw injury when the team played against the New Jersey Devils.

He sustained a broken jaw after taking a hit from Brendan Smith in the first period of the game.
After having surgery on January 8th, he remained sidelined well into the All-Star break as the recovery time for this injury was between 6 to 8 weeks.
Last night, The Blackhawks received great news as Bedard stepped back on the ice against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
This is an important moment for both the Blackhawks and Bedard as the organization continues through its rebuilding phase and has hope that Connor Bedard would light the lamp in his quest to being the Calder winner.
The team has gone through some extremely tough times recently especially losing Taylor Hall for the remainder of the season and the unexpected loss of Corey Perry due to a personal trouble that cost him his contract.
Even though the Blackhawks lost the game 4-1, Bedard factored into scoring as he assisted on Philipp Kurashev's ninth goal of the season.
Incredibly, he has remained sidelined for almost 8 weeks and still holds the lead with 34 points against this season's rookies.
