Canucks 2021 Season Players to watch

The reason why Nils will be a player to watch it will be interesting to see how much he plays this season. After spending a year loan at Rögle BK in the Swedish Hockey League where he played in 41 games in the 2019-20 season with 9 goals and 7 assists which totals 16 points. This season with Rögle in 23 games played he scored 5 goals and 9 assists for 14 points. He came over for training camp and looks to be on the second line with Bo Horvat and Tanner Pearson. He will also see powerplay time for the Canucks.

Elias Pettersson

In 17 playoff games, he has 7 goals and 11 assists for 18 points. There was no sophomore slump for the elite swede and he looks to have gotten better over the offseason.
