Vancouver Canucks forward Elias Pettersson has put contract talks on hold for the time being as he wants to focus on his play on the ice for now.

With putting contract talks on the back burner, it's allowed Pettersson to play without stressing about putting pen to paper on a new deal and so far, he's been playing incredible, putting up 43 points (13 goals, 30 assists), two penalty minutes and is a plus-eight.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the Canucks are ready to throw a significant amount of money at Elias Pettersson when he wants to sign an extension with the club.

"I believe the Canucks have decided that when Pettersson is ready, they're going to throw a significantly sized bag of cash at him. One that might have trouble fitting into a small SUV." Friedman said.



It's unclear what the dollar amount could look like, but some suggest that Pettersson could be looking at upwards of $11.5-$12 million per season on his next contract.
