Elias Pettersson and the Vancouver Canucks went into Ottawa on Thursday night to take on the Senators and walked away with a big 5-2 win to improve to 10-2-1 record through 13 games.

During the win, Elias Pettersson put up three points (one goal, two assists), which put him into first place in points in the entire National Hockey League with 24, ahead of Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov (23) and Artemi Panarin (22), who are in second and third respectively.

"Elias Pettersson is now your League leader in points! 🤩" The NHL said.

A couple of another Vancouver Canucks players have also found themselves in the top-five of the NHL's points leaders. Quinn Hughes sits in fourth place and first among all defencemen in the National Hockey League with 21 points, while J.T. Miller is tied with David Pastrnak and Jack Hughes on 20 points

With Pettersson not under contract after this season, it's great to see that it's not a distraction for him and that he's able to play extremely well on the ice, as he's looking for a second consecutive 100+ point season.

Pettersson will look to hit the quarter century mark on Saturday night as the Canucks take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET.
