He’s an average skater who is very adept at getting open in front of the opposition’s net and using his quick release to score goals.

April 2023 – Pettersson had a busy year, with 82 games split between the SHL, Champions HL, Allsvenskan, the J20, International Jr and the World Juniors. He also ended up playing seven playoff games for Rogle BK in the SHL and four more in the J20. The SHL was where he played 29 games and had a goal and an assist, while in J20 he played 24 games with an impressive 23 goals and 10 assists. He had a decent WJC where he had four points in seven games. He just turned 19 in February, so it’s likely he spends another season or two in Sweden and continues to develop. Grant Campbell
December 2022 – Pettersson will represent Sweden in the 2023 World Junior Championships. He has split this season between the SHL and U20s with Rogle. In the U20s, he has played 19 games with 15 goals and 10 assists while in the SHL he has played 12 games with one goal and one assist. This will be his first WJC, but he will be counted on to provide the Swedish team some offense. Grant Campbell
August 2022 – Pettersson does have a heavy, accurate wrist shot, so is capable of scoring from outside the circles on occasion. I would classify him as an average skater with limited play-driving abilities which will limit his ceiling. Any success he has will be from outworking people and being in the right place at the right time for a teammate to find him open. Last season with Rogle BK in the Swedish J20 he had 25 goals and 11 assists in 46 games. He will turn 19 in February of 2023, so another year in the J20 will not hurt his development. Grant Campbell
