RUMOR: Star Player Looking to Join Connor Bedard in Chicago

Published January 1, 2024 at 10:36

Elias Pettersson is having another great season with the surprising Vancouver Canucks.

The Swede becomes a free agent at the end of this season, and already his demands are reportedly high to stay in Vancouver.

He'd like to get closer to the NHL's highest-paid players, and command a salary of around 12 to 13 million, annually.

Pettersson is such an important cog in the Canucks' wheel, but it's still a lot of money for one player.

From what we hear behind the scenes, the Pettersson clan is ready to evaluate other NHL options.

Pettersson, who plays both center and wing, is also reportedly targeting potential players and teams.

According to the popular podcast Spittin Chiclets, Pettersson would like to play with Connor Bedard and create a spectacular duo in Chicago in the coming years.

Money is no object for the Blackhawks, and they'd be willing to offer the moon to a player like Pettersson in order to surround their young prodigy.

Stay tuned!
