André Willy Petersson (born September 11, 1990) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player.[1] He currently plays with HC Sochi of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the 4th round (109th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Petersson has won the Swedish junior championship and the regular Swedish championship with HV71 in 2009 and 2010, respectively. He has twice played in the IIHF World U20 Championship and won the silver medal in 2009 and the bronze medal in 2010.[2]

Petersson began the 2011-12 season in North America, playing with Ottawa's top farm team, the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League.[3] He was called up to Ottawa on January 17, 2012,[4] and made his National Hockey League debut on January 21 against the Anaheim Ducks. Petersson had a good first season with Binghamton, scoring 23 goals and 21 assists to place second on the team in scoring. As the 2012–13 season started with an NHL lockout and no NHL training camp, Petersson started with Binghamton and had 2 goals and 3 assists before injuring his hip and ending his season early.

On March 5, 2014, Petersson was traded by the Senators to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Alex Grant.[5] He was immediately assigned to AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals where he remained for the duration of the season.

On June 16, 2014, as a restricted free agent from the Ducks, Petersson opted to return to Europe in signing a one-year contract for Russian club, HC Sochi for their inaugural season.[6]
