By Sportsnet Staff

The Vancouver Canucks and superstar centre Elias Pettersson have agreed to an eight-year contract extension, the team announced Saturday.

Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported the deal carries an $11.6-million average annual value.

Pettersson, 25, is having one of his most productive seasons to date, scoring at over a point-per-game pace with 29 goals and 46 assists. His strong play, as well as career years from multiple teammates, has helped the Canucks become one of the top teams in the NHL this season.

Pettersson was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1 but could have become an unrestricted free agent in July 2025. With an extension now in place, Pettersson is set to play out the prime of his career in Vancouver.
