Elias Pettersson (upper body) isn't expected to be back this season.
"I don't think we're going to see him now," coach Travis Green said Thursday. "He's been pushing hard to get back. I'm not going to get into the specifics of the injury itself right now. There's a time and place for that, probably at the end of the season. But I can tell you we were hopeful that he was going to play. We weren't being coy about it. We wanted him back." Pettersson is expected to be fine for the start of next season. He hasn't played since March 2 because of an upper-body injury, which is reportedly a wrist issue. Pettersson will conclude the 2020-21 campaign with 10 goals and 21 points in 26 matches. Vancouver has five games left, starting with Thursday's match against Calgary. Yesterday 4:36 pm (EST)
