    Pettersson still leads the league in P1/60 (primary points) with 3.01.

    Marner is 2nd at 2.73.

    Is he called Alien because of his head?

    No, but better than anyone on the Toronto roster. That's what matters.

    I think he's at 2.93, not 3.01. But yeah, leading the league. It will be interesting to see if he can keep it up.

    I guess Vancouver should give him 4 mins more icetime per night, that way he can be closer to an art ross :sarcasm:

    1) As @jbobell98 said, points and TOI aren't linear

    2) Excluding secondary assists isn't a precise enough evaluation of Pettersson, or other players in the league, and therefore this is a cherry-picked stat thread

    In this corner, in the ****ty old corduroy pants with the translucent skin stretched over an alien frame, it's Elias, the elongated skeleton!

    It remains to be seen. Doubt his sh% will drop as much as some people (in general people who never watch him play) think and his on ice sh% isn’t very high even.

    He’s also been recovering from 2 injuries that really affected his play coming back both times. I don’t even think his point totals reflect his play tbh. His level of play this season, outside of the recovery periods and stretches of key team injuries, his level has been at Art Ross/Hart level already.

    Lol some great responses in this thread.

    But in all seriousness it’s pretty damn impressive. Also it’s funny that yesterday some Leafs fans were justifying the Matthews deal based on his P1/60 and now people are downplaying Pettersson for it.

    Why would Alien settle with being the best hockey player in the world? There's a whole galaxy out there.

    They werent wrong when they said that this kid is new Gretzky. Its amazing to think that this stud will play his whole career with S% over 20.

    Vancouver is such a lucky team to get this kid. First Horvat, then Boeser and now Pettersson. And Pettersson with 5th pick, congrats canucks.

    I just noticed this when filing for a Visa. This is the correct choice for EP!
