Since breaking into the NHL last season, Elias Pettersson of the Vancouver Canucks has proven that his talent on the ice is elite.
Recently, he reminded the hockey world that he’s as sensational away from the rink.
The 21-year-old forward turned heads during the All-Star Skills Competition in St. Louis while competing in the Hardest Shot competition. Despite only weighing 176 pounds, his first swat sent the biscuit travelling 102.6 miles per hour. His next went a blistering 100.3 miles per hour.
While those speeds didn’t win him the competition — Shea Weber of the Montreal Canadiens did so with a blast that topped out at 106.5 — Pettersson did earn $10,000 to be donated to any charity of his choice for breaking 100 with both of his shots.
