Blackhawks' Connor Bedard joins exclusive company after hitting 10-goal mark

Connor Bedard joined some more exclusive company on Wednesday after hitting the double-digit mark in just his 17th game of the season.

Bedard put Chicago on the board in the first period thanks to that lethal shot of his to end a three-game goal drought.

Among players 18 years or younger in NHL history, Bedard has reached the 10-goal mark in the third-fastest fashion. Only Patrik Laine (14 games) and Steve Yzerman (15) have reached the plateau quicker.

Alex Ovechkin (14 games) and Eric Lindros (16) are the only other two No. 1 overall picks to hit the 10-goal mark faster than Bedard.
