from Art Regner of the Wings website,

When you look at what Elias Pettersson, the Vancouver Canucks’ 19-year-old rookie center, has accomplished in his brief nine-game NHL career, the results are staggering.

The 6-foot-2, 176-pound dynamo leads the Canucks in scoring with nine goals among his 15 points, he’s plus-6, has been assessed one minor penalty and averages 17:19 in ice time.

He leads all rookies in goals and points this season despite missing six games with an injury.

Pettersson was named the NHL’s Rookie of the month for October and on November 2, he registered a career-high five points versus Colorado to set a Canucks record for most points by a rookie in a regular-season game.

And after Tuesday’s morning skate, Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill compared Pettersson to former Detroit superstar Pavel Datsyuk.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
