Jesper Pettersson (born July 16, 1994) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenceman currently under contract to Djurgårdens IF Hockey of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). He made his Elitserien debut playing with Linköpings HC during the 2012–13 Elitserien season.[1] Pettersson was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 7th round, 198th overall, at the 2014 National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft.

On July 14, 2014, Pettersson signed a three-year entry-level contract worth $1.725 million with the Philadelphia Flyers.[2]

After three seasons within the Flyers organization, and with limited prospects of playing in the NHL, Pettersson opted to return to his homeland as an impending restricted free agent, agreeing to a two-year deal with Djurgårdens IF on May 2, 2017.[3]
