Christmas came early for Canucks fans… very early. Just as recently as last month, it looked like star forward Elias Pettersson’s next contract would not be resolved until the off-season. Whether that contract would or would not be with the Canucks seemed to be up in the air as well. However, all of that anticipated anxiety was wiped off of Canucks’ fans calendars last week.

Brayden FenglerContracts, Players1 Comment

There is widespread speculation that Canucks captain Bo Horvat is not a priority for Canucks management to re-sign.
