They do not call it Dekey Pete for free.
Canucks fans are beginning to use Elias Pettersson's magic on the ice, because he does things that regularly leak your cheek.
After Pettersson was hit through the legs to create space before Nikolay Goldobin was set up for a glorious scoring opportunity in the 5-1 Saturday in Colorado, we had the opportunity to prove through the eyes of the team. n objection.
Check out the response from the Colorado Avalanche broadcast (thanks to Reddit t6h6 user for posting):
Although Goldobin did not score at the opportunity, Avs Marc Moser and Peter McNab broadcasters are still unbelief.
"Pam Is the rookie so good? "says Moser."How does that do that? "
"How are you? thinking from that? "added McNab.
And this was after a quiet night from the Pettersson standards – certainly not close to five-point nights against the Avalanche earlier in the season.
Pettersson enrolled only a single assistant when he gained a face leading to the goal of Brock Boeser. The other goals were scored by Jake Virtanen, Antoine Roussel, Tyler Motte, and Goldobin.

The rookie saw only 13:46 ice time, although the main trainer Travis Green saves. Vancouver has backups coming up in Philadelphia and Washington on Monday and Tuesday.
When appearing on a Hockey Night in Canada After Hours with Scott Oake and Louie DeBrusk, Avalanche's captain Gabriel Landeskog was an extreme confusion of all Swede.
"It's a lovely child," said Landeskog, who met Pettersson in the All-Star Game in San Jose last weekend. "He seems to have had a very good head on his shoulders and worked hard, but he has a swagger, I love him."
"She's talented, he has a little grit, and he's playing hard. It's a lot of fun to watch. I'd be surprised to see anyone else winning the Calder."

With the victory, the Canucks lead the Avs to take over the final playground at the West Conference with 30 games left. If the rehabilitation began today, Vancouver would play the Calgary Flame in the first round.
That would be fun.
