Petey Payday: PlayNow declares Canucks’ Elias Pettersson NHL’s Rookie of the Year


Canucks' Elias Pettersson NHL’s Rookie of the Year

Tomorrow, the National Hockey League will unveil the finalists for this year’s Calder Memorial Trophy, but PlayNow.com is already crowning a winner.

The Vancouver Canucks’ young phenom Elias Pettersson simply dazzled the competition, outplaying the rest of the rookie class. As a result, any PlayNow.com players who placed a bet on Pettersson at PlayNow.com to capture the Calder Trophy will have their winning wager paid out early. The NHL will officially crown the Calder Trophy winner at the 2019 NHL Awards in June.

Pettersson opened the season as the betting favourite to claim the Calder Trophy, staring down stiff competition from the likes of Buffalo Sabres defenceman Rasmus Dahlin – the first overall draft pick in 2018 – as well as Nashville Predators’ top prospect Eeli Tolvanen, and Carolina Hurricanes scoring winger Andrei Svechnikov. St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington, who is expected to be one of the other three nominees, was not a betting option to start the season.
