Hey, Per... I see that Emil Pettersson, older brother to Elias (27), is having a hell of a year. Guess Nashville owns his NHL rights but would it be something our team could look at without too much risk?
He goes UFA after this season so he very well may look at YVR
Absolutely, he is having a fantastic season. With 46 points (22+24) in 43 games he is leading the SHL in scoring, and his 22 goals has him tied for first place in goal scoring as well. He shoots more than any other player, 153 SOG so far, and he is registered for 6 GWGs, which is also best in the league.
I've mentioned earlier that he has been playing with the national team a bit this season, and there he has two goals and one assist in five games. Being the best scorer in the league he might make the cut for the world championship team, but that depends a bit on how many NHLers will be available.
I've suggested before that Vancouver should take a look at him, but then received the answer that he still belongs to the predators. If he turns UFA this summer I definitely think he at the very least deserves a try-out invitation to camp. I'm sure he'd be thrilled to get to hang with his brother!
And even more so if he can make the team...
