Top Jeff Petry News

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Picks up scoring pace

    Petry had an assist, two shots on net, two hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 8-2 loss to the Wild.

    Petry sent a puck harmlessly into the Minnesota end that went to Laurent Dauphin, who set up Mike Hoffman for the game's first goal. It was the third point in six games for Petry, who has picked up his scoring pace since returning from a three-game absence. The usually productive defenseman had just two points in the season's first 28 games.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Ready to rock

    Petry (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's game versus the Avalanche.

    Petry was a game-time decision heading into Saturday's contest, but he's good to go in his usual second-pairing role.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Questionable Saturday

    Petry (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision Saturday against Colorado.

    It's unclear what Petry is dealing with but there's a chance the veteran blueliner won't be available. The 34-year-old has four points through 32 games this season. If he's not in Saturday's lineup, Bretty Kulak or Sami Niku could slide into the lineup.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Finds twine for first time

    Petry scored a goal on three shots, logged four hits, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.

    Petry's first goal of the year came in his 29th contest after he lit the lamp 12 times in 55 outings last season. He ended a 17-game point drought with the tally, but he's at just three points this season. Barring a ridiculous surge, he'll miss the 40-point threshold for the first time since 2016-17. The defenseman has added 41 shots on net, 58 hits, 35 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating in 2021-22.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Returns to ice

    Petry had one hit and two penalty minutes over 20:12 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to Boston.

    Petry played for the first time since Dec. 16 after clearing the NHL's COVID-19 protocols earlier this month. The ice time was less than his season average of 23:04, but the top-pairing defenseman was back on the power play and should get his conditioning up to snuff during Montreal's seven-game road trip. Petry has just two assists -- the last one coming Nov. 2 -- in what has been a bewildering season for him and the Canadiens.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: On the ice Tuesday

    Petry (COVID-19 protocols) took part in Tuesday's practice session after clearing the league's protocols, John Lu of reports.

    The fact that Petry skated with the No. 2 power-play unit should be a strong indication he'll be back in action versus Boston on Wednesday. If he does play, the veteran bleuliner will be making his first appearances for the club since Dec. 16 versus the Flyers.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Placed in COVID-19 protocols

    Petry entered the COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Petry has appeared in just two NHL contests since recovering from an upper-body injury. The 34-year-old will look to snap his 16-game pointless streak upon return from protocols.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Upgraded to game-time call

    Petry (upper body) was labeled a game-time decision ahead of Tuesday's clash with Pittsburgh.

    Despite initial reports that Petry wouldn't be available, it seems the defenseman will be a game-time call. With Chris Wideman (personal) unavailable, the Habs will have to turn to Corey Schueneman to fill out the lineup, while Kale Clague will likely see the biggest uptick in ice time.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Removed from IR

    Petry (upper body) is no longer on injured reserve, per the NHL's media site.

    Petry is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's tilt with Pittsburgh and this move indicates that he'll most likely be good to go. The 34-year-old has missed the last four games. He has just two assists while averaging 23:21 of ice time through 25 games this season.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Ruled out Tuesday

    Petry (upper body) will not be available versus the Penguins on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Petry will be on the shelf for his fifth consecutive contest due to his upper-body problem. Prior to getting hurt, the defenseman was bogged down in a 14-game pointless streak and is still looking for his first goal of the 2021-22 campaign. As such, the Michigan native shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value once given the all-clear.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Remains unavailable

    Petry (upper body) isn't expected to play Saturday versus St. Louis, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Although he's not expected to be available against the Blues, Petry was on the ice for Saturday's morning skate, so he could be ready to return to action sooner rather than later. Kale Clague will likely continue to skate on Montreal's bottom pairing until Petry's cleared to play.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Out Thursday

    Petry (upper body) will not play Thursday against Chicago.

    Petry is reportedly not far from returning, so he could be an option as soon as Saturday in St. Louis. The 34-year-old has now missed three straight games and has just one point since the start of November.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Lands on injured reserve

    Petry (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Petry last played Dec. 2 versus the Avalanche, so he'll be eligible to return Thursday versus the Blackhawks. The 33-year-old defenseman has not been assigned a timeline to return from his injury yet.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Slated to miss out versus Bolts

    Petry (upper body) is set to be out of action against Tampa Bay on Tuesday, John Lu of reports.

    Petry -- who will miss his second straight game due to his upper-body issue -- is stuck in a 14-game pointless streak. With only two points in 25 outings this year, the defenseman will likely miss the 40-point mark for the first time since 2016-17 after having reached that threshold in four straight seasons.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Nursing upper-body injury

    Petry will miss Saturday's game in Nashville due to an upper-body injury.

    It's unclear when the defenseman suffered the injury and how severe it is. Petry, who has a pair of assists this season, should be considered day-to-day with a chance to return for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Collects assist for second straight

    Petry had an assist, one hit and one blocked shot over 26:22 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Red Wings.

    Petry was a game-time decision due to an undisclosed injury, but the blueliner logged a team-high 26:22 of ice time. He also figured in the scoring for a second straight game, helping set up Nick Suzuki's game-winning score early in the first period. Petry, like many members of the Canadiens, has started the season slowly with just two points through 11 games. This, after he averaged nearly a point per game last season (42 points, 55 games).

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: In Tuesday's lineup

    Petry (undisclosed) will suit up against Detroit on Tuesday, Eric Engels of reports.

    Petry wasn't available for Monday's practice, but he won't miss any game action with his minor injury. The 33-year-old blueliner has one assist while averaging 24:09 of ice time through 10 games.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Game-time decision against Wings

    Petry missed Monday's practice session and will be a game-time call versus Detroit on Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, John Lu of reports.

    While the Habs didn't provide any details regarding the nature of Petry's absence, the fact that he is at least a game-time decision Tuesday should be an indication it's not a serious injury. Still, without Petry, Montreal will have to rely even more on Ben Chiarot and Alexander Romanov to log big minutes on the blue line.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Practices Thursday

    Petry (finger) participated in Thursday's practice session, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Petry ended the Canadiens' deep playoff run with a finger injury after getting his hand caught in a camera hole during the second round. The defenseman will be counted on for a significant role with Shea Weber (ankle) not expected to play this season. Petry recorded his fourth straight 40-point campaign with 12 goals and 30 helpers in just 55 contests in 2020-21.
