  1. Pettersson had his sophomore slump in the last third of his first year. Fatigue with the long season must have played a role, but the league waking up to his threat and playing him tighter was also a big factor. Petey will have to adapt to the tight checking. How well he adapts will determine whether he becomes a superstar or not.
  2. At the beginning of the previous season, Pittsburgh was the 27th heaviest team in the league (I just looked it up), meaning they were lighter than the average team.
  3. We should be happy Pettersson is only 165 pounds. Add even 15 pounds to his weight, and I doubt he would have been available at 5. The good news is his weight is on an upwards trajectory since he says he's gained 10 or 12 pounds over the previous year. When I read about him, it sounds like his skill level and hockey IQ is up there with Hischier and Patrick. I'm looking forward to following him over the next 2 years. After that, I wouldn't be surprised to see him playing for the Canucks.
  4. He's not 150 pounds. He was 164 at the combine.
