Playing career

During Game 3 of the Western Conference Final in the 2005–06 playoffs, Toby Petersen scored his first ever NHL playoff goal against Ilya Bryzgalov of the Anaheim Ducks by stealing the puck and wrapping it into an empty net while Bryzgalov attempted to make a play behind his goal line.

Petersen has stated that he is a type-one diabetic. As a result, he must use his insulin pump during games. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins nominated him as their 2003–2004 AHL Man of the Year candidate for his work with Diabetes charities.

Petersen remains a huge Minnesota sports fan, especially the Twins. He met Mike Modano at a youth hockey camp when Modano was a rookie for the North Stars; at one point, Modano even babysat the younger player. Now playing together on the Dallas Stars, Petersen was impressed that Modano remembered him from so many years prior.
