Playing Against Eilias Pettersson

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

Brock Boeser can’t pinpoint the precise moment it started, but as he makes his way through this NHL season as Elias Pettersson’s wingman, he’s noticed a not-so-subtle change in the way other teams play the Canucks’ prize rookie.

Take the most recent trip to California. In Anaheim, a scrum breaks out in front of Vancouver’s net and the first person Ryan Kesler grabs is, guess who? A night later in Los Angeles, Anze Kopitar, a former Lady Byng winner, is giving Pettersson some extra love.

Thursday night against Phoenix, Pettersson exchanges whacks with Conor Garland and eventually shoulders the Coyotes’ forward to the ice.

“If there’s a scrum, they’re always grabbing Petey,” Boeser says. “They’re trying to get under his skin, but he does a good job of not worrying about it. He still plays his game.”

It’s suggested to Boeser that Petterson’s limited English might be a good thing during these moments.

“I don’t know,” he says with a laugh. “I think he knows what most guys say, but he looks at me and we just laugh it off. You expect that stuff to happen.”

Video- Three More Goals For Elias Pettersson

from Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Province,

He’s scoring at a rate that is better than Malkin’s or McDavid’s. Crosby’s and Ovechkin’s are slightly ahead. (Canucks Army’s Jeremy Davispointed out to me that the latter two’s rookie seasons were in 05-06, the first post-lockout season when referees cracked down hard on hooking and holding and the scoring rate jumped to levels we’ve not seen since.)

This is called elite talent.

Seriously, we’ve not seen anything quite like this before.

The Sedins were good but not world-beaters as rookies. (Maybe they might have been had the Canucks not already had a top-six without them.)

Pavel Bure was outstanding as a rookie, scoring 36 times in 65 games (and 24 assists). But Pettersson, playing in a lower-scoring era, is scoring at a better pace than Bure.

And Bure’s point total is all because he finally found his groove in February of 1992. He scored 22 goals in the final 22 games of the season.

Elias Pettersson In The Spotlight

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

It’s now official: Elias Pettersson is a trending topic in the NHL.

We know this because, following The Alien’s five-point performance against Colorado on Friday night, emails flew around TSN clarifying the correct pronunciation of Pettersson’s last name.

The boys in Toronto now know it’s PETT-er-sson and, yes, we will be listening....

Through the first nine games of his NHL career, the most impressive thing about Pettersson isn’t his production or his hockey sense or his shot. It’s the totality of his game. He passes it like Henrik Sedin or Nick Backstrom, back checks and works away from the puck like Peter Forsberg and shoots it like an elite goal scorer.

The biggest problem with Pettersson, in fact, is managing expectations.

Elias Pettersson’s Five Point Night Helps The Vancouver Canucks Defeat The Colorado Avalanche

from Iaian MacIntyre of Sportsnet,

The owner’s tweets were as boring as the game was spectacular.

Local owner Francesco Aquilini, who runs the Vancouver Canucks for his family, created a buzz Friday afternoon when he promised on Twitter to live-tweet that night’s game against the Colorado Avalanche.

This had the potential to be magnificent for the media, disastrous for his coach and general manager. But Aquilini, who wears his local roots and fandom with pride, offered mostly pre-planned statements and uncontentious observations that didn’t come close to upstaging one of the most entertaining games of the National Hockey League season.

“I don’t know, what was the score, 7-6?” Canuck rookie Elias Pettersson said. “If we score six goals a game, we should be able to win full-time.”

If the Canucks score six goals a game, Aquilini won’t have to do anything by pose for a statue to stand beside the franchise’s first Stanley Cup.

The Canucks are still a long way from that, but with Pettersson and Brock Boeser and Bo Horvat and others here and on their way to the NHL, at least there is hope.

And nobody had to tweet about hope Friday night for people on the West Coast to know it’s there.

Pettersson, still just a Swedish teenager, scored the tying goal with 36 seconds remaining in regulation time, then capped his five-point night with an assist on Derrick Pouliot’s overtime winner, which bounced between the post and Avalanche forward Gabriel Bourque before settling in the net as Vancouver won its third straight game and improved to 9-6-0.

Elias Pettersson May Be Dealing With More Than A Concussion

from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,

“He definitely has a concussion and probably has whiplash and has probably injured his left shoulder,” said Sigalet, a founding practitioner of the Burnaby-based Catalyst Kinetics Group and consulting chiropractor for players in the NHL, CFL, Rugby Canada, MLS and Canadian Olympians.

“I can guarantee you that the left side of his neck — the way it got ripped back — the left anterior part can be completely inhibited.

“If somebody isn’t working on that to make it react again properly, it just leaves you susceptible for being injured again. He needs to have good manual therapy and get started on an anti-inflammatory specific protocol for brain inflammation.”
