EP 40: Award favorite after 1st quarter

Puck Empire has released their 1st quarter's favorites for the end of the year individual award. Have a look in the Instagram post below:

Elias Pettersson sits 4th for the Hart Trophy, most valuable player for his team, and 3rd for the Selke, the best two-way player in the game.

All Vancouver Canucks analysts are unanimous about the fact that Petey has really worked on his defensive game and he takes a lot of pride in it, since his trio (Mikheyev - Pettersson - Kuzmenko) has been utilized to shut down the other teams' top line on many occasions.

Pettersson's offensive productivity has been even better then his previous years as he's put up 27 points in 22 games so far this season.

If he keeps it up like this, he could be aiming for a massive raise once he renews his contract at the end of 2024.
