Sven-Ove Jörgen Pettersson (born 11 July 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.
