NEWS | Elias Pettersson on Being Named NHL's 1st Star of the Week



When asked about being named 1st star of the week, he says...."it's good, but the team is making me look good out there." 


Gotta like Petey's maturity, he gives the team credit for the recognition and success he receives.  It show's he's got an authentic "team first" mentality. Hopefully it wears off on some of the other guys.


Lock him up, lock him up.....LONG TERM!!!  :emot-parrot:

EP did it last year and I’d say that more research is required.  Bure, Nalsund and a few others I’m sure are on this list - if not named player of the month. 


As far as EP goes I’m just reading the most recent THN mag and it’s all about the best 21 and unders in the world  and we have two in the top hundred.  EP comes in at 2, QH at 10...


This is what they had to say about EP “EP career began so blistering hot that he made his 5th overall draft slot look like an insult within 10 games (ten goals).  In a do over he does first.  Puckhandling sublime, shot blown away excpectations.  He was miscast as a “future number one center” , he had Art Ross MVP upside.  “


There are a lot of great young guys he’s ahead of on this list   ... including Heiskanen, Laine, both Hughes, Lafreniere, Svecknikov etc..oh and BTW Hirschier is 31st. 


Also as an aside Brock Boeser also was named first star of the week his rookie year late January...

Who was #1 on the list?
