    Played his 1st NHL game today against Chicago with 13:28 TOI and was a +2

    What do you have to say about him?

    Solid game

    Extremely sheltered as a first game rookie should be but had a great first pass and connected on most of his passes

    Keep your head up kid he got steamrolled a couple times

    You can tell he has the brain to play at this level. Body and confidence to be determined

    Needs to be physically maturing in the AHL vs playing bottom pair minutes with the big club

    Getting cups of coffee from time to time is part of that process.

    We have to learn how to spell his name, last few days I saw several misspellings. Not a grammar nazi (I also often make grammar mistakes) but I think you should know how to spell the names of your favorite teams players.

    Related: Rackell, Anderson, etc


    Congrats Marcus on his first game. +2 in a 3-2 game is a nice start. He took a lot of time to get here, and it sounds like he`s nowhere near of his career peak

    He was okay, not good not bad... i still think welinski was the better choice for the call up based on the pairings but hopefully we keep giving these guys a chance.

    Much better than bieska thats for sure

    I thought he was pretty good for his rookie debut.

    He's clearly a very smart player, has a great first pass and obviously covers a lot of ground (skating + reach). He had a couple of pretty aggressive pinches, which was surprising and he got caught on the first one, laid a hit on Debrincat on the second.

    Welinski is more physically ready to handle an NHL forecheck at this point, but I thought Pettersson was better defending the rush. He'll probably get better at handling the forecheck (and pinching) once he gets accustomed to the speed of the NHL.

    I wonder how much of his call-up was for his initial cup of coffee or BM needed to get some NHL game film on him leading up to the trade deadline ... :popcorn:

    Very smooth puck mover, passed the puck well and a good skater. Mediocre positioning and gap control, at times he gave the Hawks too much room and at other times he was quite aggressive and got out of position. That will come with experience though. He didn’t really get tested along the boards so hard to commet there.

    Overall a good debut.

    Looking forward to somebody to slip and say his name is Magnus Petersen.

    Agreed.

    Welinski had a 4 game cup of coffee this season.
    Larsson had a 4 game cup of coffee in 16-17.

    Not nearly as good. Didn’t have the puck as much to make plays and got caught out of position and running around his own zone a lot. Lost a few board battles too. It didn’t help that Manson had an absolute stinker.

    I think he looked solid. Made some good plays. He was in on their second goal, but that was Mansons fault entirely.

    I heard the Wild commentators calling him Peterson, so it's getting close.

    he should play very sheltered minutes, I think he has good upside and talent but he's still just a lanky kid, he needs to be eased into the league

    They could also be showcasing him for a trade or a trade of someone else like Larsson and seeing if these kids like Pettersson and Welinski are legit enough, I think with Mahura's emergence something could happen

    I don't think they're showcasing him for a trade. For one thing it's not like scouts are incapable of showing up at AHL games, and most teams would understand his experience level and the problems that go with it without seeing him in an NHL game. His cup of coffee coincides with the team looking shaky, I think that is most likely the cause for him getting a look.

    Is Pettersson the guy TJM wrote off because he was tall and “too lean” when drafted?
