His two-point display gave his team a 2-1 lead after the first period.

With his dominant performance in the first period, Bédard extended his score streak to 20 games, and became Second player in WHL history to achieve this feat in consecutive seasons. Brendan Shenemen first achieved this record with Tri-City Americans in 2010-11 and 2011-12.
