"SAN JOSE. Elias Pettersson usually don't get nervous."
"But before the night's first All-Star appearance, it actually feels a bit nerve-racking for the Swedish 20-year-old who has taken the NHL by storm. "
"– Yes, it is the first time I am with in this context and a little bit of butterflies in the stomach I have. But when I get out on the ice, I think I will be as confident as usual, " he says."
"Good job by a 20-year-old who, as late as in the spring played in the SHL, but of course there was never any debate."
"So incredible that he played during his first four months in north America, he belongs to the most given on the ice in the Sharktank during Friday's and Saturday's events."
"It does not prevent the hockeykonstnären from Ånge is a little taken when he and all the other superstars the day before the ”skills”competition encounter a giant mediauppbåd in the San Jose classic old Civic Auditorium."
"– Just now, when I stepped out on the stage to be presented , I was actually a little butterflies in the stomach, " he says in Swedish after the north american journalists got their."
"– above all, it feels of course much fun to be here and meet all the other players I previously followed on tv from home and now playing against, but it is the first time I am with in this context so a little nervous how it feels."
"”As confident as usual”"
"Otherwise, the ”EP” is known for its long-established self-confidence and when it is time for his ”branches” in the night skicklighetstävling – ”I'll be with in the terms of puck control and so it was something more” – will the nervousness probably drop,"
"– Again, I have not done anything like this before, but I think enough it. I will be as confident as usual."
"regardless, he looks forward to the days in Silicon Valley, not least for the opportunity to become acquainted with the other stars – like the three other swedes who are on the party of the year ; Erik Karlsson, Gabriel Landeskog and Henrik Lundqvist."
"I know none of them before, but talked a bit with Erik just before we came out to this pressträffen and think it will be fun to get to know even named captain of the Team," he says."
"– It is the player I have a great respect for and want as well as always other swedes, as well."
"the Feelings are mutual."
"– Yes, it will be fun to meet Elias for real, " says Karlsson, a crowd favorite in San Jose these days."
" If I have any advice? Nah, it is well he give me advice, as cruel as he is, he he. We hope I can learn some ”moves” of him during the weekend."
