From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sven-Ove Jörgen Pettersson (born July 11, 1956 in Gothenburg, Sweden) is a retired Swedish ice hockey player.

After a good early career with Västra Frölunda IF, he was signed as a free agent in 1980 by the St. Louis Blues. Known as "The Handsome Swede" by Blues supporters, Petterson made an impact as an excellent first-line forward alongside Bernie Federko and Brian Sutter, setting the team record for points as a rookie with 73. Pettersson played five seasons with the Blues before being traded to the Hartford Whalers. During the 1985–86 NHL season he was traded to the Washington Capitals in exchange for Doug Jarvis. Pettersson returned to Sweden to play for Frölunda, where he retired in 1991.
