The Chicago Blackhawks aren’t having the best of seasons, and on Monday, they lost yet another game, this time against the Vancouver Canucks.
The Blackhawks now hold a 14-31-2 record and are ranked 31st out of 32 teams in the NHL. The Blackhawks were blanked by the Canucks on Monday, losing 2-0, as Thatcher Demko made 31 saves in the shutout.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, the Blackhawks got brutally slammed by an 8-year-old Canucks fan, who was interviewed live on the Jumbotron before the game.
Fans always love it when kids get interviewed about hockey because they can say pretty much anything, and they don’t really have the same filter as adults.
Before Monday’s game, an 8-year-old kid wearing a Canucks jersey was on the Jumbotron for a live interview, and he was asked if he had a message to the Blackhawks. His answer was as surprising as it was hilarious.
”You’ve had a bad season and you suck,” the kid said, per senior Canucks writer Jeff Paterson.
Paterson’s post about the kid’s comment quickly went viral, with everyone finding it absolutely hilarious. Even Blackhawks fans thought it was funny.
”We’re already dead, kid,” one user said on social media.
”Damn that kid wasn’t even born for the 2011 finals…,” another said.
”That kid was born after the Hawks last Cup lmao. His whole life we’ve sucked,” a third added.
But many also made jokes about the kid actually being Connor Bedard, who grew up in North Vancouver, British Columbia, supporting the Canucks as a child.
”That kid is Connor Bedard,” one user said.
”Plot twist, the kid is Bedard,” another said.
”Good to see Bedard showed up to Rogers Arena,” a third added.
More bad news for the Blackhawks came on Monday. Chicago head coach Luke Richardson provided an injury update on rookie sensation Bedard, saying the forward will be sidelined for another six weeks because of a fractured jaw sustained on Jan. 5.
