Connor Bedard has already received congratulations from Wayne Gretzky, but he almost ignored the call

In the world of hockey, Wayne Gretzky still looms large. Even if you don’t particularly care about the Edmonton Oilers, it’s impossible to ignore Great One’s offensive accomplishments. For most NHL fans, having a conversation with the living legend would be a dream come true. Connor Bedard, however, has already checked that off the list.

For the NHL prospect, however, the interaction almost went south before it even started. In fact, Bedard nearly refused to answer the phone when the number 99 came calling.
