After being elevated from the rookie list and being named as an emergency towards the end of 2008, Petrenko was elevated to the senior list permanently for the next season and made his AFL debut against Collingwood in round 1. He was in and out of the senior team during the season, impressing with his pace and ferocious tackling.
Despite growing up in South Australia, Petrenko was a passionate St Kilda supporter and was hopeful of being drafted by the Saints before ultimately being chosen by the Crows.
Petrenko inspired a segment on Nova 919 radio show 'Maz, Dan & Shane' entitled "Dudesday Tuesday" on Tuesday 18 September 2012. The segment asked listeners to call and tell the presenters about the times that they have "done a Petrenko".
In February 2015, Petrenko was given a short-term contract by Essendon to play in the 2015 NAB Challenge as a "top-up" player, due to 26 Essendon players withdrawing from the NAB Challenge because of the ongoing Essendon Football Club supplements controversy.
Petrenko grew up in Henley Beach, attended Henley High and supported the St Kilda Football Club in the AFL.
