Elias Pettersson's Player Profile

ISS Hockey - Mar. 15th: "Scored both goals in recent game, one on a breakaway. Two-way player can play both wing & center"

Jeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "Playing in Sweden he’s been lights out, but internationally it’s a different story where he’s struggled, most recently at the world juniors. The team that drafts him will have to be patient, but he has the tools to make their patience pay off."

ISS Hockey - Feb. 20th: "Shifty playmaking center has been lighting up the scoresheet and now has 37 points in 37 games"

Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "Pettersson (6-1, 156) is gaining plenty of experience with and against men in Allsvenskan, Sweden's second division, where at 18 he leads Timra with 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) in 27 games. He has good vision and hands and is considered more of a playmaker. He can play wing or center, and can effectively run a power play."

Future Considerations: "An energetic forward with highly creative hands, good work ethic and offensive skills…smart and aware on the ice…dangerous one-on-one player…combination of speed and the ability to make quick turns in different directions with the puck make him hard to pin down…can pull off multiple quick dekes in unison with quick changes of direction to break ankles of defenders…keeps his feet moving and brings quick pressure on his opponent offensively…finds open ice and creates space for himself to get off his strong wrist shot"

Dennis Schellenberg Hockey Prospectus - Nov. 9th: "A creative forward who possesses very good hands and can beat opponents in 1-on-1 situations with his slick hands and puckhandling skills. He can make quick turns in different directions with the puck and keeps his feet moving. "
