Ron Delorme was intimidating on the ice and then became persuasive off it. The former Vancouver Canucks’ defenceman turned chief amateur scout was sold on Elias Pettersson early in the 2016-17 season.

WHISTLER — Brock Boeser had the right response to a tough question Monday. When the Vancouver Canucks right winger was asked if he could follow up 29 goals in 62 games last NHL season with 50 goals this coming campaign, the Calder Trophy finalist put that lofty plateau in perspective. “Anyone would take 50 — that’s super hard to do,” he chuckled. “I don’t think of that at all. I’m more focused on getting back to my style of game. I feel better t
