After a good early career with Västra Frölunda IF, he was signed as a free agent in 1980 by the St. Louis Blues.

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.
