One of the anchors of a tough Tacoma defense, Peterson has played in 44 games for the Stars over his two seasons totaling 15 points. For his MASL total, he has 54 games to his credit with nine goals and eight assists.

Coach Darren Sawatzky had his to say about Peterson, "Troy is a steady force for us with the Stars and we are happy to have him back.   You always know what you are getting with him and occasionally he scores a goal or makes a tackle that keeps you in the game.  Troy epitomizes this new generation of the Stars and having his local presence for years to come will be important for us.”
