Heres a clip of Andre Petersson. He looks like he has some wheels and knows how to deke. Could end up being a great pick.
Here is a talent analysis from Hockey's Future.
Petersson is a one-dimensional offensive player. A magician with the puck with plenty of slick moves in his repertoire. He loves to challenge the opposing defenseman and is good one-one-one. Petersson is a natural scorer, but at the same time delivers crisp passes. The only knock here, is that he sometimes is a bit too puck happy, and should pass more. What makes him even tougher to stop, is the fact that he is an above average skater with good acceleration and agility.
The major knock on Petersson is his defensive game, work ethic and consistency. He does not really care to back-check and is always focused on contributing offensively instead. Also, if he could bring his A game each night, he would be able to be an even more productive player. In the Swedish junior league, Petersson at times was outstanding, only to be invisible in the next game. Sometimes he does not seem to be inspired and hangs with his head. When on top of the game, however, he is a player that can do the unexpected and win a game for his team. Enormous potential.
