Petan (lower body) remains day-to-day and according to coach Paul Maurice is closer to a week from returning, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

The news effectively rules Petan out against New Jersey on Tuesday and certainly puts his status for Thursday's outing into question. When healthy this season, the center was not only contributing at even-strength, but garnered four helpers with the man advantage. While his numbers might not jump off the page, if the 21-year-old retakes his spot on the power play, he is certainly worth a look in most fantasy formats.
