Pettersson (upper body) won't be available for Vancouver's final five games of the campaign, Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The Canucks were hopeful Pettersson would be able to return before the end of the season, but with nothing to play for, they've decided to shut the 22-year-old Swede down for the year. Pettersson is, however, expected to be ready for next season's training camp. The fifth overall pick from the 2017 NHL Entry Draft was limited to just 26 games due to injury this campaign, but he was his usual productive self when in the lineup, racking up 10 goals, 21 points and 63 shots on net over that span.
Pettersson (upper body) remains without a timetable for his return to action, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Pettersson met with a specialist this week, and the news he received evidently wasn't positive, as the 22-year-old pivot is still expected to miss extended time -- and perhaps the rest of the season. The Canucks aren't in a good position in the playoff picture, so they could elect to play it safe and shut down their star center for the remainder of the campaign. If that ends up coming to fruition, Pettersson will finish the season having racked up 10 goals and 21 points in 26 games.
