Petryk's junior men's curling team which included Dave Zabolotniuk, Lyle Horneland and Denis Krysalka won the Alberta provincial junior title in 1982. The rink would represent Alberta at the 1982 Canadian Junior Curling Championships where the rink finished with a 4-7 record, missing the playoffs. Ottawa Citizen; February 27 1982

After juniors, Petryk would find himself playing for former world champion Ed Lukowich. In 1994, Petryk won the Alberta provincial championship playing lead for the rink which also included Fred Maxie playing third and younger brother Dan at second. Until Kevin Koe won in 2012, that rink would be the last Calgary-based team to win the provincial title. They would go on to represent Alberta at the 1994 Labatt Brier in Red Deer. The team went 5-6, missing the playoffs.

Petryk would soon leave the Lukowich rink, and after playing for his brother Dan for a few years, began to skip his own team in 2001. He still plays with his brother though, who throws last rocks for the team.

Outside of curling, Petryk is a dentist with Solace Dental Care in Calgary.[3]
