Default With the 167th OA pick Flames select C Mathias Emilio Pettersen

Beauty of the play there. Looks like he has a little bit of Johnny in him. May not be as good, may not even play NHL games. But he definitely showed some great lateral skating there, nifty hands, hockey iq and vision to boot.

"There is not," assures University of Denver Pioneers' head knock David Carle, "a wasted day, a wasted hour, a wasted moment, in Emilio Pettersen's body.

"This is a super-super-competitive kid.

"He's a huge piece of our program and our pursuit of another national championship. We think we have a real good chance at it this coming year and the years he's with us.

"We were real excited about his growth as a player and to watch him build off the foundation he's put in place.

"There's no reason he can't be even more impactful in the years to come."

His foot work is at an NHL level from the skating drills today. Very good and composed with his skating. Tight turns, quick first step, decent acceleration. Everything A-OK from this skill set.

Will be interested to see how the rest of his game is. Looking more like a legit NHL prospect.

In an Athletic article about the DU program, coach David Carle had this to say about Pettersen.
Quote:
Mathias Emilio Pettersen is another player you have coming back. What was your thoughts on his freshman year and what do you want to see from him going into his sophomore year?
Emilio did a great job this year. We had a real good end to his year in Muskegon in his last year in junior. We were really excited to have him be a part of our program. Emilio exceeded expectations, I would say. We thought he’d be a good player for us but we didn’t see how much in love he is with Denver and how much he cares about our process, his teammates and winning. He is a DU first guy. It takes sometimes two or three years for guys to get to that level and I think Emilio is on the fast track to doing that. He has a real good awareness of how he fits into the team dynamic and cheering for his teammates and trying to make them better in practice every day but understanding that Denver is bigger than any one person in the group.
Where did you see the most progression in his game?
I think it was his responsibility with and without the puck. Emilio certainly has game-breaking skill and ability to make plays but I think it was choosing his spots when to do that and more of when noticing moments when not to do it. At the end of the shift when he is one guy against four. When we’re up a goal with a minute-and-a-half left in the game. It’s learning how to manage a game and understanding that, “We want you to be yourself and be a skilled offensive player but there is a give and a take to that. You have to manage a game at times.” I think that’s the biggest thing and there was buy-in from him in wanting to get better at that. Then, without the puck, his ability to pressure pucks. Get pucks back. His awareness in his own end with starting to talk and communicate. Stopping and starting. Seeing the puck and seeing his man, I think, just made him a much more responsible player and allowed him to have the puck more. That’s a lot of what we sell to our team: The harder you play without the puck, the more you get to have it. Certainly, when you have it, the game is a lot more fun.

It was more of a testament to his commitment to whatever team he plays for.

I took it out of context to make a joke. I really want this kid to become a good player for the Flames just for the "night at the Roxbury" references.

EMILIO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although they do say "mr. mighty duck himself..."

No. Clearly in the context of the answer Denver refers to the DU hockey program and not necessarily the city itself.

So this Mathias Emilio Pettersen kid could have 1st or 2nd line play-making centre potential?

I'd say 1st line is a stretch. 2nd line potential for sure

He's clearly Johnny, but at C

And Philips is Johnny, but at RW

We could conceivably have three versions of Johnny on one line in a couple years!

I think he has 1st line potential. Will he get there? I certainly hope so, but you can't really bet on it. Loads of skilled players with that kind of upside often fizzle out. However, from the sounds of it, he is always working on his game and seems to be a really high-character individual. I wouldn't bat an eye if I see him in the Flames' top 6 eventually. I do think he has that legitimate upside in his game though.
