Dallas Stars 2011-12 Season Grades: Toby Petersen

Once again it's that time of year here on Defending Big D where we take a look at each player that suited up for 20 or more games this season (and are still with the team) - and take a look back at their season. What was good about it, what wasn't so good, and the lasting impression they left us as we go into summer.

Key Stat: 3.13 - The Stars shooting percentage when Toby Petersen was on the ice this past season was 3.13%. Only 11 players in the league that played more than 30 games had lower.

The Good: When Petersen was on the ice the Stars generated significantly more shots on net than they allowed, but very few went in. Some of that can be chalked up to bad luck, but not all of it.

The Bad: Petersen pretty obviously fell out of favor with the coaching staff early. He and his fourth line comrades were protected from the get go, and as the season moved forward Petersen had less and less opportunity to play. After January 21st Petersen only got into eight games while averaging less than eight minutes per game on the season.

The Bottom Line: Petersen played his role as a fourth liner. Little was expected from him. Few responsibilities were thrown his way outside of an ill fated attempt to allow him to man a point on the powerplay. Subsequently the Stars got little value, but how much did they really anticipate?

The Vote: Rate Petersen on a scale of A to F (A being the best of course) based on his performance relative to his potential and your expectations for the season.
