Tuesday’s edition of #NHLStats: Live Updates featured more notes from the 10-game slate, including Elias Pettersson (38-63—101 in 79 GP) posting two assists to reach the 100-point mark for the first time in his career.
Pettersson became the seventh first-time 100-point scorer this season (also David Pastrnak, Nathan MacKinnon, Jason Robertson, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Mikko Rantanen & Erik Karlsson), tied for the most in League history (w/ 1984-85 & 1992-93).
He is the sixth different 100-point scorer in franchise history, following Pavel Bure (2x; last: 1993-94), Daniel Sedin (2010-11), Henrik Sedin (2009-10), Markus Naslund (2002-03) and Alexander Mogilny (1995-96).
Pettersson became the 12th different player of Swedish nationality to record 100 points in a single NHL season.
The 2022-23 campaign also saw Erik Karlsson reach the 100-point mark, making it the third time in NHL history where multiple Swedish players reached the 100-point mark, following 2009-10 (Nicklas Backstrom & Henrik Sedin) and 2002-03 (Peter Forsberg & Markus Naslund).
