Now he was not, because he had the passed the puck. He appears to have had some sort of misplaced trust in that canadians could actually behave somewhat sportsmanlike, but apparantely he was wrong. I think Petterson knows better now.
Bracing for an impact can cause more damage in many cases. I personally got lucky that I did not see the street car coming that t-boned me, my body was limp when hit and saved a lot more injury. It happens all the time. Bones get broken all the time when people are paying attention, so don't act like him being fully prepared would have saved injury on the hit.
