Elias Pettersson celebrates Vaine Gretzki


"Offer Every Night"

Elias Pettersson, 20, took the NHL in the storm.

Now the Swedish giant talent is celebrated – the biggest one.

"We have a lot of similarities," said Vaine Gretzki.

It's very good for Elias Pettersson …

He scored 17 points (10 + 7) in 12 first matches in the best hockey league in the world, celebrating 20 years today – and now he was also celebrated by Vaine Gretzki himself.

The fans of the Lirical Vancouver Canucks have already begun to draw parallels with the 57-year-old legend, so Canadian Sportsnet decided to call him (Gretzki, then) and leave his opinion on the comparison.

"To see how this young man is coming (in the NHL) and entertaining the audience and inviting every night, is nothing but positive for our sport. I had the opportunity to see him several times and so I am funny to watch, playing with so much passion" , says Gretzki at a radio show SN 650.

"He's so smart"

Gretzki does not interfere with the comparison.

– The comparison is what this sport is about. I think we have a lot of similarities. His look at the game and the ability to find smart solutions on ice is at least as good as anyone else at this time. He's so smart, he always knows where to position himself on the ice. Vancouver fans are obviously excited because they have a strong body of young players and this will be good things in the future in the city, Gretzki says.
