Pettersson was given a qualifying offer from the Penguins on Tuesday, Taylor Hasse of DK on Pittsburgh Sports reports.
Pettersson was a lock to receive a qualifying offer from the Penguins, in order to retain his rights, as the blueliner figures to be a mainstay in the lineup this season. There is little chance the Swede will agree to sign his one-year, two-way offer worth $874,215 and instead will be looking for a more long term, higher value deal this summer. With the departure of Olli Maatta, Pettersson could be vaulted into Pittsburgh's top-four defensemen.
Pettersson will serve as an alternate for Sweden ahead of the 2019 IIHF World Championship, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
If anybody gets hurt or opts out of the tournament, Pettersson will get the opportunity to play for his national club. The 22-year-old saw action in 57 games with the Penguins after being brought in via trade from Anaheim. The blueliner averaged 17:57 of ice time last year.
Pettersson logged an assist and two blocked shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Flyers.
Pettersson has two goals and 16 points in 48 games with the Penguins after a trade from the Ducks. The blueliner has 22 points in 75 total games this season, along with 88 hits, 102 blocked shots and 72 shots on goal. He can provide a little depth to owners in deeper formats.
Pettersson is bogged down in an eight-game goalless streak, despite logging 1:12 of ice time with the man advantage over that span.
Pettersson struggled to produce with the Ducks, as he managed a mere 10 points in 49 career games, but the Swede already has 14 since joining the Penguins (42 games). Still, the blueliner's opportunities on the second power-play unit could come to an end once Kris Letang (upper body) is cleared to return, which won't improve his chances of finding the back of the net.
Pettersson will eventually garner an extension from the Penguins, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "We're going to resign him," GM Jim Rutherford said.
Pettersson's entry-level contract -- a deal originally procured by the Ducks in June of 2015 -- expires after this season, but he'll remain under the Penguins' control as a restricted free agent. Pettersson started the season with only six points (all assists) through 27 games for Anaheim, but he's since turned up the heat with Pittsburgh. Specifically, the Swede has notched a pair of goals to complement 11 helpers -- including four man-advantage points -- and a plus-10 rating between 35 contests for the Pens.
Pettersson recorded just his second multipoint effort of the year in Sunday's clash with the Rangers.
Pettersson failed to score a goal in 27 games with the Ducks the season, but has found the back of the net twice since joining the Penguins. The Swede's tally came on the power play, a spot he could struggle to hold on to with Justin Schultz back in the lineup.
Pettersson scored his first goal as a member of the Penguins in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers on Thursday.
He came into the night with nine assists in 28 games with the Penguins, but finally, he has a goal. It's just his second NHL goal in 78 career games. Pettersson has one goal and 16 points in 56 games with the Ducks and Penguins this season.
Pettersson notched an assist in Monday's 6-3 defeat to the Devils.
Despite his inability to find the back of the net, Pettersson has been rolling with eight helpers in his previous 10 contests. The Swedish blueliner is averaging 16:34 of ice time, but could see a dip in minutes once Justin Schultz (lower leg) is cleared to return.
Pettersson registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Panthers.
The 22-year-old is still searching for his first goal of 2018-19, but regardless, Pettersson continues to rack up assists. His two helpers give him five over his last four games and 12 on the year. The young blueliner was a team-best plus-3 versus the Panthers and also dropped the gloves to finish with five penalty minutes.
Pettersson is averaging 15:46 of ice time with the Penguins, compared to 14:01 when he was with the Ducks.
Since joining the Pittsburgh, Pettersson has played in every game (11) and has tallied 14 shots, 12 blocks and 16 hits, but is still looking for his first point in a Penguins uniform. While he may be a lock for the lineup now, Pettersson could find himself up in the press box once Justin Schultz (lower leg) is cleared to return.
Pettersson will make his Penguins debut Tuesday versus the Avalanche, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
The Penguins traded Daniel Sprong to the Ducks in exchange for Pettersson on Monday, and the team will immediately see what he brings to the table. Pettersson played 27 games for the Ducks this year and collected six assists.
Pettersson was shipped to the Penguins in exchange for Daniel Sprong on Monday, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.
This was a case of two teams dealing from a position of strength to shore up a position of need. Sprong couldn't crack the Penguins' lineup, but will have a chance with Anaheim. Pettersson, meanwhile, was going to have to fight for a playing time once the Ducks were fully healthy on defense. The 22-year-old has shown some potential this year, though. Through 27 games he has six points, all assists. However, the fact he only has 15 shots on goal is a concern.
Pettersson notched a helper in a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Predators on Sunday. He also played 20:14, including 2:01 on the power play.
Pettersson's minutes were way up in this game, especially on the power play. This is probably mostly because Hampus Lindholm (lower body) and Cam Fowler (face) are both on injured reserve. For now, the 22-year-old will have a bigger role, but we're still talking about a guy with 10 shots on goal through 23 games.
Pettersson was recalled to the Ducks and will play Tuesday versus the Flyers.
With Josh Manson (upper body) as a game-time decision, Pettersson was an easy recall from AHL San Diego. Pettersson has already played in 11 NHL games this season and posted one assist. He shouldn't be considered a fantasy asset at this time.
Pettersson was reassigned to AHL San Diego ahead of Sunday's home game against the Sharks, TSN reports.
Petterson traded places on the organizational depth chart with Andy Welinski. The former only has one helper through 11 games this season, so it probably won't hurt for the Swede to refine his game with the top developmental affiliate.
Pettersson notched an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Arizona.
Considering Pettersson has just one shot on goal through the first four games and is averaging a paltry 12:56 of ice time, he's not exactly racking up fantasy production. The Swede's hold on the third pairing spot is likely tenuous at best, as Andrej Sustr could challenge for minutes, while Korbinian Holzer's (wrist) pending return to the lineup may also serve to bump Pettersson from his spot.
Pettersson scored one goal and added three helpers in 22 games during the regular season.
Pettersson mainly worked in the bottom defensive pairing, as he averaged just 13:37 of ice time. The 21-year-old didn't shy away from NHL play, though, as he dished out 18 hits and stepped in front of 27 shots. Pettersson also spent 44 games with AHL San Diego and posted zero goals and 14 points. Veteran defenseman Kevin Bieksa missed 23 games due to injuries this season which allowed Pettersson to enter the lineup, so he'll battle with Andy Welinski for a full-time role next campaign.
Pettersson recorded a third-period assist during Sunday's 5-4 overtime win against Edmonton.
The rookie defenseman has now recorded three assists and averaged 15:50 of ice time through his past four games. Pettersson should remain in a third-pairing role for the duration of Kevin Bieksa's (hand) injury absence, which makes the 21-year-old Swede an add candidate in cavernous fantasy settings. There's also a good chance that Pettersson keeps the job and pushes Bieksa or Francois Beauchemin out of the lineup when the Anaheim defense corps is healthy.
Pettersson scored his first NHL point, a goal against the Blackhawks, during a 6-3 victory Sunday.
The Ducks called up the 21-year-old in the middle of February. Before Sunday, he had no points with a plus-1 rating and five shots in seven games. It was nice to see the kid get on the scoresheet, but it's unlikely he'll make a fantasy impact down the stretch.
Pettersson was recalled from AHL San Diego on Tuesday.
With the Ducks waiving defenseman Korbinian Holzer, Pettersson was needed to provide depth to the Ducks' blue line. The 21-year-old has 14 assists, 22 PIM and a plus-7 rating in 44 minor-league games this season, so it's likely to Ducks want to see what he can do on the big stage. He won't suit up Tuesday against the Red Wings, but his next chance to crack the lineup will be Thursday in Chicago.
