Fantasy Summary

Peterson is skilled and consistent in almost every facet of the game. His two-way game is developing to North American ice quickly, and his shot is a threat from anywhere in the offensive zone.

June 2022 – Coming over to North America for the first time this past season, high expectations were set for Peterson. After a phenomenal season in the SHL with Farjestad, where he led his team in plus/minus and came top-five in all metrics other than PIM’s (46 games: 14 goals, 19 assists, plus-17), Peterson would have to prove his game could translate overseas. Despite these fantastic results, it was expected Peterson would spend the season adapting to North American ice in the AHL, but he proved too valuable to leave in the minors. Playing 71 games this season, he played all but six in the NHL. His point totals aren’t astonishing (12 goals, five assists in 65 games), but with his limited minutes, his goal totals were particularly intriguing. 

As the end of the season came closer, the two-way game Peterson had established in the SHL came more to life, and he became more comfortable using his elite agility and IQ against NHL competition. Despite lacking true speed, Peterson was able to get himself into useful positions for his teammates, both on the forecheck and the backcheck. With his development proceeding so quickly, Peterson’s ceiling is truly difficult to determine; expect him to remain in the bottom six for now, although if the opportunities arise, Peterson should be at the top of the list for chances in the top six and significant time on special teams.
