|Flaws:||Is definitely undersized (5-9, 169 pounds) for the National Hockey League game, so he must get stronger to better handle big-league defensemen.|

Andre Petersson trying to turn around career | 09/08/2013 9:15 AM
NewsAndre Petersson was selected to the Ottawa Senators' development camp at the 11th hour.
ImpactIt was an injury to Jarrod Maidens that ended up creating a spot for Petersson. Since being drafted in 2008, Petersson has fallen in the Senators' depth charts and not all of that has been due to his on-ice performance. Petersson has displayed attitude issues, but he's attempting to turn his career around. "I've got to be more professional," Petersson said. "I've got to do all the right things and all that. I have to be 100 per cent focused on hockey. Not anything else come first. Hockey is number one priority right now. As I see it now, it's a fresh start for me and I want to look forward, starting from square one this year." Petersson had a goal and an assist in a rookie game on Saturday.
