    I think that Carolina would consider him at 2, but go with Svechnikov. I don't see any way that MTL would not take him at 3.

    On the question of position, Benning said in an interview not long ago that he expects EP to start on the wing, but he'll be tried at centre at some point next year.

    What Benning expects, and what actually happens, are often 2 very different things. However, given the value of centres (vs wingers), team need, and the fact that unlike his SHL team- the Canucks have no chance of winning a league championship next year, it's obvious that he'll be given a chance to play centre. Will it work out ??? Nobody knows for sure, but he was a centre for most of his life before he advanced to pro hockey.

    Lol. We’ve been talking about this since November. He’s been playing wing most of the season. Currently a winger, pettersson said he can play either, been a centreman his whole life will probably start the Canucks as a winger.

    Nice Debut. 2 goals and an assist. Hit a crossbar, close to a hattrick.

    The Swedes on the top line (Dahlen-Pettersson-Lind) needed the 1st period to adjust but they were magic in the latter 2 periods. Just a prospects tournament, but it's still nice to see a player of Pettersson's calibre be just that in a game like this and stand out.

    I love any goal that lifts the water bottle that high. He reminds me a bit of Sakic who was one of my favourites

    Shot reminds me of Markus Naslund’s.


    the thought of Quinn Hughes setting up Boeser and Pettersson for shots on the power play...

    this play was crazy as well

    Pettersson on one side and Boeser on the other on the powerplay. Watch out...

    Yes, absolutely. His frame doesn’t allow him to win those battles every time, but the willingness is definitely there. He is absolutely in the danger areas often.

    I was impressed with him at C in these two games, although the comptetion level is very low, and the hockey is a bit of a mish mash. Still, he was very conscious of his defensive responsibilities, and broke up an odd man rush brilliantly in todays game. He didn’t get outmuscled often like he did last year, and very rarely fell on the ice.

    The adjustment to the smaller ice is a big deal, but I thought he did really well. Dahlen was very impressive also, and might have been just as good as Elias in these two games. Very good chemistry between the two!
