2020 Fantasy Outlook
Pettersson put together another excellent campaign in 2019-20, matching his 66-point output from his rookie year in three fewer games. The Swedish center is one of the NHL's bright young stars, equipped with the talent to both score and create chances for his teammates at high levels. With a plus-16 rating, Pettersson also showed more capability on defense in 2019-20, as did a much-improved Canucks team in general. Fantasy managers should expect a near point-per-game pace from Pettersson in 2020-21, who is also likely to chip in 20-plus power-play points in a full season. He'll be worth a pick within the first three rounds on draft day. Read Past Outlooks

Pettersson scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
ANALYSIS
Pettersson had a hand in the opening tally by Bo Horvat. Later in the first period, Pettersson scored to give the Canucks a 3-0 lead, but that was the end of their offense for the game. The multi-point effort has him up to eight goals and 10 assists in 23 contests this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Fresh off taking home the Calder Trophy, Pettersson, 20, will have his hands full trying to one-up what was undoubtedly one of the more impressive rookie campaigns in recent memory. In his debut season, Pettersson led the Canucks in scoring with 66 points, finishing with 28 goals and 38 assists. A dynamic finisher, Pettersson rarely allows a scoring opportunity to pass him by, which led to him scoring on 19.4 percent of shots during his rookie season. Even if Vancouver winds up turning in yet another mediocre season, barring injury, you can bet Pettersson will reside atop the team's points list. Don't be shy to snag the sophomore with an early-round pick.
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.
