Draft History
Drafted in 2017 NHL Draft: 1st Round, 5th Overall Pick by Vancouver Vancouver
Additional Information Top scorer on his team on a point a game pace. even though he is more of a playmaker, he scores some really pretty goals. Very strong on the puck and an all-around high skilled player whose hands, head, and feet make things happen. Very agile and slippery. Has an extra gear and slick stick. Can cut and slash through tight space and draws penalties because of it. A selfless give and go player, he excels as a power play guy with an exciting future. Lias was added as their centre in the Four Nations U-20 tourney in November, playing alongside Carl Grundström (Toronto draft pick) and was a dominant player in the tourney.

Scouting Profile

Despite is skinny frame, Pettersson possesses superior puck-skills that very few players can match. He is more of a playmaker than a goal scorer, but his shot is exceptionally hard and accurate, especially considering he is below 170 pounds. On the powerplay, you won't miss his vision and creativity, combined with his shiftiness and soft hands. Pettersson dazzles fans no matter what team they are cheering for. One of the most dynamic players we have ever seen. A true difference maker.
