Three Western Canadian kids apply for exceptional status

As noted by Sportsnet NHL Insider, in his weekly “31 Thoughts” column, Riley Heidt and Brayden Yager (Saskatoon Contacts, SMHL), as well as Connor Bedard (West Vancouver Hockey Academy, CSSHL) have applied for exceptional status with Hockey Canada which would allow them to play a full season in the WHL next season if successful. A Western Canadian player has never successfully applied for exceptional status, with the last attempt coming from 2019 first overall pick Matthew Savoie. Savoie has played 12 games this season and has five points.
