On Thursday, the Vancouver Canucks held their season-ending media availability and there was plenty of talk over the last couple of months if forward Elias Pettersson has been dealing with an injury. Today, Pettersson addressed those rumours.

When speaking with reporters, Elias Pettersson shared that he's been dealing with a knee injury since January that he said has been more painful as the months passed. Thankfully for the Canucks, Pettersson said that he doesn't need to have surgery, only that the injury requires rest.
"Yeah, I was playing with a bad knee since January or it's been like a nagging injury. So, the longer it went, the more pain I felt." Pettersson said.

"No, just needs time to heal, time to rest and then rehab as soon as I'm back home." He said when asked if his injury needed surgery.

Pettersson also went on to say that he's looking forward to get away and enjoy his summer after dealing with rumours about his contract before he signed an extension and whether he could be traded, which was believed to be possible at one point.
"It's been a noisy season in terms of the contract and how shit I've been the last few months." Pettersson said.

In his last 26 games dating back to March 21st against the Montreal Canadiens, Pettersson only has two goals, which was not good enough for someone who drove the Canucks' offense, alongside Quinn Hughes, J.T. Miller and Brock Boeser, for months.
Pettersson is expected to be back at 100% by the time training camp rolls around in September and the Canucks are hoping that he'll be able to find his form to start the 2024-25 season and be an impact player for them once again.
