"Called ’alien’ ”He defiles them”"
"Elias Pettersson, 20, get the whole Vancouver to cook."
"Now hailed he the unison of their team-mates."
""I have never seen anything like it," says Antoine Roussel."
"The Swedish succérookien is currently injured and has missed Vancouver's last three matches. But it does not prevent the local media from continuing to pump out articles about him."
"The Athletics beat reporter Jason Botchford has unearthed some of the underlying numbers, and the produced statistics showing Elijah's extreme superiority in the Nhl."
"Or how about this:"
"There are many statistical tools, which indicates that maybe there's not a single player in the entire NHL that mean as much to his club as Elias Pettersson means for the Canucks,” writes Jason Botchford."
"When he's talking with Pettersson's team-mates pay tribute to the swede in unison. For example, tell Jake Virtanen to a 20-year-old time and time again get them to be amazed."
"– He's doing things that you barely believe is possible. And this happens at least once per match. All of us on the bench are sitting there thinking ”oh my god!, says Virtanen."
"Troy Stecher fills in:"
"– When I think of Elijah, I am thinking first and foremost on his scope and his way to control the puck. He degrades his opponents. Then he has a crazy shot. He weighs ”only” 80 pounds, but it doesn't matter if it is a slap or wrist shot – he literally mashes the where the puck is..., " he says."
"Petterson – half-jokingly, half-seriously – been nicknamed ”the Alien” (he was) in Vancouver and The Athletic have anspelat at the nickname and made a montage where the 20-year-old is portrayed as half-man, half-alien."
"Antoine Roussel understand why."
"– Elias shot is absolutely crazy. I can't believe how good it is. But not only that, his whole game is impressive. His timing is perfect and his passing is always right on the blade. Take the game against Ottawa, in the overtime where; Elias created three 100% chances entirely on his own. I have never seen anything like it. And I know that he had become enraged if we lost the match. It's probably what impresses most – he always want to be better. He wants to face the best players. He always wants to win. And it is, of course, with those kind of guys in the team actually wins, " says Roussel."
