Vancouver Canucks forward Elias Pettersson has achieved a significant milestone in his blossoming NHL career, surpassing the 100-point mark for the first time this season. The talented 24-year-old center, drafted 5th overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, has been an integral part of the Canucks’ success since joining the team.
In 79 games played this season, Pettersson has found the back of the net 38 times and contributed 63 assists, totaling an impressive 101 points. His consistency and offensive prowess have been invaluable to the Canucks, who are thrilled to see their young star continue to develop.
The Canucks have had a rocky season, finishing in the bottom 5 of the Western Conference, but not low enough to be in the conversation for the number 1 overall pick in the draft.
Throughout his tenure with the franchise, Pettersson has accumulated 135 goals and 187 assists, amassing 322 points in 324 games played. This remarkable achievement places him just shy of a point-per-game average in his young career, a testament to his skill and ability to impact games at the highest level.
As the Canucks continue to build around their core group of young stars, Pettersson’s 100-point season is a promising sign of what’s to come. The team and its fans can expect even greater things from the Swedish phenom as he continues to grow and assert himself as one of the league’s premier talents.
