The National Hockey League has selected Elias Pettersson to represent the Vancouver Canucks at the 2023 NHL All-Star Game in Sunrise, Florida.
Pettersson will don a Canucks jersey at the All-Star Skills Competition at FLA Live Arena on February 3 before skating for Team Pacific in the divisional 3-on-3 tournament the following day.
This will be Pettersson’s third NHL All-Star Game appearance. He ranks second on the Canucks with 17 goals and leads the team with 44 points. He’s under contract through the end of the 2023–24 season at a $7.35 million cap hit.
Pettersson previously skated for the Pacific Division at the 2019 and 2020 NHL All-Star Games, winning the 3-on-3 tournament in the latter year. Thatcher Demko represented the Canucks at the 2022 event in Las Vegas.
