2018 Fantasy Outlook
Pettersson is regarded as one of the best young forwards to hail from Sweden and comes to North America after scoring 56 points in 44 games for Vaxjo, including 19 points in 13 games in the playoffs en route to winning the championship. He swept the awards as well, being named the league's MVP, playoff MVP and Rookie of the Year along with a gold medal from the World Championships. Pettersson has game-breaking offensive ability with the only concern being his lack of strength, but that has never been a major impediment to elite players. He's expected to be a valuable addition to the Canucks top six, more likely as a second-line right winger than a center, and a strong candidate for the Calder Trophy. Fantasy owners looking for the league's next breakout star should keep an eye on Pettersson, who offers incredible upside. Read Past Outlooks
