In 2009, he made 15 appearances and came away with one goal. In 2010, Petrone made only 9 appearances for Seton Hall.

On February 24, 2011, Petrone joined Swedish club Mjällby AIF.[3] He made his professional debut for the club on April 3, 2011 in a 1-0 loss to Helsingborgs IF. On 26 July 2012, he signed for Icelandic 1. deild karla club Leiknir on loan until the end of the season.[4] He went on to play nine matches for the club, scoring his only goal for Leiknir in his penultimate appearance in the 3–2 away win against Höttur.[5]
