My biggest issue with the Pettersson hit is that it was targeted. Matheson hunts pettersson down after he made him look silly. He followed him then body slammed him. The intent to injure is clear. Unacceptable. @Canucks @Sportsnet650
Penguins vs. Canucks Preview: No walking with Elias tonight as Petterssen injury denies a fun matchup. But find out everything you need to know about Brandon Sutter and the Canucks anyways..
Schultz is out, Murray is back, and Sidney Crosby surprises a special group of players. Everything from Monday inside today’s Pens Points..
Två matchers avstängning för överfallet på Pettersson. Känns i minsta laget..
“Well after the puck is gone and after his natural hitting motion has stopped, Matheson intentionally and dangerously slams Pettersson directly into the ice” —> wish they had this way of thinking in 2011.
Daniel Carcillo (@CarBombBoom13) breaks down Mike Matheson slamming Elias Pettersson, suspension. MORE @.
Tired of hearing Pettersson is playing with “the big boys” now to justify the ’s not coming from won the playoff mvp last year in the @botchford.
Florida’s Mike Matheson suspended two games for interference/unsportsmanlike conduct on Vancouver’s Elias Pettersson..
It’s clear my attempt at humour w regards to the hit on Elias Pettersson was in poor taste. I apologize. I met him in Van & was impressed w him as a person & player. It sickened me to see the aftermath of the hit. Concussions are not to be made light of. I hope he’s okay. My bad..
This is so offside. And he didn’t even get Pettersson’s name right. Pathetic..
Updates from Coach Green: Pettersson is in concussion protocol. Beagle is out six weeks with a broken forearm..
Linden on Pettersson : His playmaking ability and vision is one thing but his release is incredible, he gets it up so quick. He is a special player. #Canucks.

Me worried about Pettersson 😲😨 I need an update on EPetty!.
Bästa sammanfattningen i en tweet: Vem vill vi helst se på isen? Elias Pettersson eller Mike Matheson?.
Vancouver @Canucks rookie Elias Pettersson became the sixth player since 1997-98 to record eight points through his first five career @NHL games. #CalderTracker.
Florida’s Mike Matheson will have a hearing tomorrow for interference/ unsportsmanlike conduct on Vancouver’s Elias Pettersson..
No update on Pettersson this morning but I don’t see him playing on Tuesday. They need to take time and not rush him back to lineup. #Canucks.
Need him to ride shotgun with Pettersson when he’s healthy.
Initial thoughts on the Pettersson incident: A) clear childish reaction by a pissed off opponent but end of the day it amounts to a reckless shove B) as owner I’d go full Melnyk & publicly shame & dispose of the coach + each player you’d think could have stood up for the kid..
Så frustrerande att se Elias Pettersson. Killen har gåvor, teknik och precision ingen annan i världen har. Men alltid lurar det oprovocerade våldet runt hörnet. Som t ex att ta tag i en 70-kiloskropp vid sargen och i ren illvilja kasta den med axel/huvud före ner i isen..
‘Dirty play’ knocks Canucks’ Pettersson out of game.
@ShawnMatthias It’s not rocket science man. With Pettersson in a vulnerable position (following an initially clean hit) he forcibly accelerates EP’s fall, driving him downwards, increasing the force with which his head hits the ice. If you see that as a hockey play then carry on being shitty..

Matheson had no intention of making a hockey play here. Was pissed after being embarrassed by Pettersson..
Elias Pettersson (5-3—8 in 5 GP) matched the record for longest point streak by a @Canucks player to begin his NHL career, a mark set by Don Tannahill at age 23 in 1972-73 (3-2—5 in 5 GP). #NHLStats.
