  • Connor Bedard is the youngest active NHL player in the 2023-24 season.
  • Bedard is 18 years old and plays for the Blackhawks.

Success can come at any age, but for some, it happens sooner rather than later. 

This is the case with Blackhawks forward Connor Bedard, the youngest player in the league for the 2023-24 season at just 18 years of age.

Bedard was the first pick in the 2023 NHL Draft.

The youngest player in league history is Armand “Bep” Guidolin, who debuted in the NHL for the Boston Bruins on Nov. 12, 1942, at 16 years of age.

*Note: all ages are as of July 2023.
