He was awesome at the camps last year, but had a slow start in Chicago. Last I heard, however, he was really picking up the second half of the season. Too bad. It does make an already weak system, weaker.

He would still be our property though right? How long did he sign for?

If it was a 1 year deal, could he not play next year in Sweden and then come to training camp next year?

Or at 24 is the reality that he never makes this team?

Nope it's not a loan, he signed a 4 years contract with Frolunda. Apparently it's Pettersson who broke his contract.

If you're not on the radar as a forward at 24 it's probably not gonna happen.

yeah i think you can rank him in the same way as Brunnstrom, Klasen, Gustavasson, Wesslau, Ullstrom, Blindenbacher, Lindstrom.... top stars in Sweden but unable to get a job in NHL.

Pettersson was a good player for the Wolves last year, and he could have made a run for a spot in camp this year. I would not say this is a detrimental loss for the organization; however, I also would not write this off as no biggie. It's not like he was just some plug in the lineup.

There are some players who have slower starts than others. Pettersson is one of those players, and his performance last year demonstrates that he was starting to come into his own.

Sorry to see him go back, but I wish him all the luck with Frölunda.

I thought he was gonna give it another whirl in camp this year, but it's great to have him back. He's pretty much a god in Gothenburg.

He played half the year with what he thought was a concussion, but the team told him to play anyway. Guess he just had enough.

I'm not too upset by this.

As mentioned, he was already 24 and not in a position to get a spot on the starting roster (at least over the likes of Machacek or Maxwell) unless he blew everyone away at camp.

He might as well play in his home country rather than the AHL.

The Wolves seem like a very poorly run organization. Sure glad we don't have an affiliation with them this year.

Good luck, Canucks.

I wouldn't say the Wolves are a poorly run organization, but I would say their first and foremost concern is winning the Calder Cup. Prospect Development for their parent is a secondary concern.

I thought the same. However, when I hear they are telling their players to play through concussions, that raises serious concerns about the org.

Of course, there are 2 sides to every story.

At least there wasn't talk of asking players to play through a concussion when Chevy was in charge over there.

In other words, the Canucks are going to be absolutely thrilled having the Wolves as a farm club?

Seriously, I can see why the Thrashers struggled so much in ATL. Between the Octotards and having the Wolves as your affiliate?

Which he did last season. Was hoping he would return but did not expect it to happen before Jets camp.

yeah, development in Chicago was nonexistant. That's part of the reason Pacquette and Ailu were in Gwinnett... The ECHL team actually DID player development.

Pettersson should have had a spot on the roster this PAST year. He was the BEST player in the entire camp. He played excellent during pre-season with B-Little. It was one of those things where I seriously questioned Ramsay's decision to not put him in the line up.

Though he was small, he found open spots and had a nice shot. Damn shame.

ramsay made some really, REALLY questionable calls early on. giving the last forward spot to dawes was mind boggling when other, more promising players were playing so well and got sent down.

pettersson definitely earned at least the 13th forward job, and really should have been on the third line to start the year (considering how useless eager was already proving himself to be). it's a shame because from outside appearances it would seem the disappointment from not making the opening night roster accounted for his slow start.

Was looking forward to seeing him and Klingberg play together.

However, this a fact of life in the offseason.

Just so you know what you're missing out on, he went from popular to legendary status after this record breaking outdoor game, scoring three goals and one assist in a 4-1 win. Look for #10.
