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.
