Popular Post Down by the River Posted January 5, 2020 Popular Post Share Posted January 5, 2020 (edited) It's a long article so I won't post the whole thing, but another story about EP's character: https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/elias-pettersson-vancouver-canucks-deportation-big-read/ Basically, his childhood friends/neighbors were deported from Sweden back to Armenia. Given 15 minutes to pack before they were forced to leave. EP invited them to see him play in Vancouver last December. They were first reunited about 6-7 years later when Pettersson was playing in Sweden: Pettersson wanted to be at the airport in Stockholm to greet them, but he had a game in Sundsvall. His squad lost 5–0, but any disappointment about the result was soon forgotten. On the way home, the team’s driver pulled into a gas station and announced that something was wrong with the bus. When a minivan pulled up and parked alongside them, the driver then announced, “Hey, look who’s here.” The Danielyans stepped out of their ride and were immediately rushed by Pettersson and his teammates. “I hugged them and didn’t let go of them,” Pettersson says.
