2019 Fantasy Outlook
After putting up just six assists in 27 games with Anaheim, Pettersson went on a tear after being traded to the Penguins in December, notching two goals, 17 helpers and 72 shots while recording a plus-13 rating and 49 PIM in 57 contests. The big-bodied defenseman came into the league as a defensively-minded player, but it appears that he has the ability to chip in offensively as well. The 23-year-old Swede should be capable of challenging the 30-point mark in 2019-20 and figures to earn a spot on the No. 2 power-play unit, giving him solid mid-range fantasy value.

June 26, 2019
Pettersson was given a qualifying offer from the Penguins on Tuesday, Taylor Hasse of DK on Pittsburgh Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
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.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Pettersson arrived in North America from Sweden and needed little time to prove he could hang at the pro level. The 22-year-old notched 14 assists in 44 games for AHL San Diego before being called up to Anaheim after a slew of injuries. With the big club, Pettersson accrued one goal and three apples (one on the power play) in 22 games, and the Ducks played him for all four playoff outings as well. The adjustment was made easier by his 6-foot-4 frame, and Pettersson is expected to start the season on the Ducks' bottom pairing with too low of a ceiling for fantasy owners to take a shot at.
