COVERING PETERSON’S LEGACY
Legacy South Florida celebrated Assistant General Manager Brett Peterson on the cover of its 2022 Black History Month issue. Peterson became the first Black assistant GM in NHL history when he joined the Panthers in November 2020. A former player of the AHL, ECHL, IHL and an NCAA champion at Boston College, Peterson said he sees more children of color playing hockey today. “So, it’s very encouraging and I’m happy that people are starting to understand how fantastic the sport is. It really is a game that can be for everybody,” he said.
