Petersen, Canada finish 2nd at Deutschland Cup

If you didn't follow the 2016 Deutschland Cup in Augsburg, Germany, what's wrong with you? It's the Deutschland Cup!

If you indeed didn't follow, you may not have known that former Sea Dogs forward Nick Petersen was a late addition to Canada's roster. Trevor Parkes, a former Montreal Junior, was also added.

Canada finished second behind Slovakia in the three-game tournament. The Canadians defeated Switzerland 3-0 in their opening game before falling 4-3 to Slovakia in a shootout. Canada ended the tournament on Sunday with a 3-1 victory over Germany, clinching second place.
Peterson finished the tournament with three assists in three games - two of which came in Canada's victory over Germany on Sunday.

The 27-year-old has been playing with Eisbaren Berlin in Germany's DEL this season. According to Elite Prospects he has recorded nine goals and 19 points in 16 games.

This is Peterson's fourth season in the DEL after playing professionally in the AHL and ECHL for three years.

A fourth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2009 NHL Draft, Petersen spent his overage season with the Sea Dogs, coming to Saint John to complete the Alex Grant trade. The winger recorded 39 goals and 79 points in 59 regular season games and added seven goals and 28 points in 21 playoff games.

Peterson scored one of the biggest goals in Sea Dogs history in the 2010 President Cup final, scoring in overtime of Game 4 to even the series at 2-2.
