Elias Pettersson isn't about to be upstaged by a teammate. Let alone a goalie, at least when it comes to stickwork.
The Vancouver Canucks phenomenal rookie forward saw his teammate, goalie Thatcher Demko, flip a puck high in the air and catch it.
Sure, players pull that trick all the time. But nice work by Demko, going with the ungloved hand, keeping the blocker on and working the heavier goalie stick with the thicker blade.
Until you see Pettersson's trick.
He decided to flip the puck and his stick in one motion, then catch the stick and catch the puck. It's better if you just watch:
Talk about one-upsmanship.
It's hard to even care about the failed flip and baseball swing at the end.
The lesson here: Do not try to show off in front of Elias Pettersson.
