Tetarenko was drafted by the Florida Panthers 82nd overall in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut for Florida during the 2000–01 NHL season and went on to play 69 games over three seasons before he was traded to the Ottawa Senators for Simon Lajeunesse. He only managed to play two games for the Sens and in 2003 he signed with the Carolina Hurricanes, but also played just two games for them, spending much of his tenure with their American Hockey League affiliate the Lowell Lock Monsters. Tetarenko then signed with the Minnesota Wild in 2004, but never played for the team, instead spending three seasons in the AHL with the Houston Aeros. When he was a healthy scratch, he done commentary in the radio broadcast booth alongside Aeros announcer Ken Double.
Tetarenko retired after the 2006–07 season.
