Top Jeff Petry News

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Two goals including late winner

    Petry scored two goals in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

    Petry showed a penchant for late heroics in this one. He put the Canadiens up 2-1 with nine seconds left in the second period, then broke a 3-3 tie with 31 seconds left in the third. It has been a disappointing season for the veteran defenseman, but Petry's been in vintage form with the pressure off down the stretch, notching six points in his last four games.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Two helpers in loss

    Petry recorded a pair of assists in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Boston.

    Both of Petry's assists came on the power play, setting up Josh Anderson in the second period and Mike Hoffman in the third. The 34-year-old defenseman has been productive of late, recording eight assists in nine games since returning from a lower-body injury April 9. Despite his recent hot streak, Petry will likely fall short of 40 points for the first time since the 2016-17 season. He currently sits at 24, with four goals and 20 assists.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Sets up two in loss

    Petry had two assists, two shots on net, two hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Capitals.

    Petry's inching closer to the end of a trying season for the 34-year-old defenseman. After four straight seasons with 40-plus points, Petry stands at 20 with six games remaining. He also has two years left on a contract that nets him $12.5 million.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Picks up helper

    Petry notched an assist, two shots on goal, three blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

    Petry saw his shot attempt deflect in off Josh Anderson's knee, tying the game at 2-2 at 6:19 of the third period. In two games since he returned from a lower-body injury, Petry's earned a pair of assists, six blocked shots, five hits and a minus-2 rating. The veteran defenseman is up to 18 points, 95 shots, 129 hits, 98 blocks and a minus-12 rating in 59 outings this season.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Set to play

    Petry (lower body) will play Saturday versus the Maple Leafs, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Petry was deemed a game-time decision earlier Saturday, and it looks like he's good to go. He'll likely play in a top-four role with power-play time.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Game-time call

    Petry (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup with the Maple Leafs, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Confirmation on Petry's availability versus Toronto likely won't be released until Montreal takes the ice for pregame warmups. The 34-year-old vet has missed the last seven games due to a lower-body injury.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Facing extended absence

    Petry is expected to be sidelined long term due to his lower-body injury, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Petry -- who was injured in Thursday's clash with Florida -- was already facing an uphill battle to get over the 40-point mark for the fifth straight season as he has just 16 points in 57 games this year. With an extended layoff, the veteran defenseman will almost certainly fail to reach that mark this year. Despite him being in the first year of a four-year contract, Petry's name circulated among trade rumors in the lead up to the deadline, and he could still be moved out this summer.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Sustains lower-body injury

    Petry (lower body) left Thursday's game versus the Panthers and will undergo further evaluation, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Petry left the game in the second period and didn't return. Head coach Martin St. Louis expects more information on Petry's status should be available Friday, so he can be considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game versus the Maple Leafs.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Helps twice in loss

    Petry had two assists, three shots on net and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Coyotes.

    Petry's two assists helped make up for his contributions to Arizona's first two goals. Barrett Hayton raced by him for a goal 1:57 into the game, then a little under two minutes later, Petry didn't pick up Anton Stralman in time. Nevertheless, Petry has picked up his offense with 10 points over the last 13 games, which could spark interest at the trade deadline, although he comes with a hefty price tag through the end of the 2024-25 season.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Logs assist in loss

    Petry had an assist, three shots on net, two hits and three blocked shots in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Petry had an inadvertent assist when a shot deflected off his body and triggered a sequence that led to Alexander Romanov's third-period tally. It was Petry's eighth point in the last 11 games, a scoring surge that could be enough to lift his value leading into the March 21 trade deadline. Until this recent stretch, Petry's hefty contract and unproductive season made him immovable. Even with the scoring surge, the Canadiens would likely have to retain a portion of Petry's salary on their books in order to trade him.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Suits up Wednesday

    Petry had one shot on goal, three hits, two blocked shots and was even in plus/minus over 21:51 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Vancouver.

    Petry entered the game nursing an upper-body injury but was ready to go for puck drop. While he's played better since Martin St. Louis assumed control of the bench, Petry had an unforgiveable giveaway in the neutral zone that led to J.T. Miller's goal that broke a 2-2 tie early in the third period.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Good to go Wednesday

    Petry (upper body) will play Wednesday versus the Canucks, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.

    Petry was reported to be dealing with a minor injury as of Monday, but it won't cost him playing time. The 34-year-old will play on the second defense pairing and should also draw some power-play time. He's picked up three goals and four assists in his last nine outings.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Dealing with minor injury

    Petry is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Montreal's next game is Wednesday against Vancouver, so Petry could have enough time to heal without missing any time. The veteran blueliner has 13 points with a minus-9 rating this season. If he's out Wednesday, Corey Schueneman will likely jump into the lineup.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Tickles twine in overtime win

    Petry scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Flames.

    Just 10 seconds after a penalty expired late in the first period, Petry capitalized on a second chance in the Flames' zone. He's logged a goal and an assist in two games since March began. It's been a rough year for the veteran defenseman, but he's looked more like himself with three goals and four helpers in his last eight outings. For the year, he's at 13 points, 72 shots on net, 108 hits, 65 blocked shots and a minus-10 rating through 48 contests.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Back on scoresheet

    Petry had an assist, two shots on net, three hits and two penalty minutes in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to Winnipeg.

    Petry set up the first of Josh Anderson's three tallies, which ignited Montreal's comeback from a 4-0 deficit. The assist halted a two-game pointless streak for the defenseman, who has played noticeably better since Martin St. Louis took over as interim head coach. Petry has six points in the last seven games.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Gathers assist Monday

    Petry recorded an assist, two blocked shots and went plus-2 in Monday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Petry set up Josh Anderson for the opening tally just 2:58 into the game. The 34-year-old Petry is in the midst of his longest point streak of the season with two goals and three helpers in his last four games. The veteran defenseman hasn't been immune to the Canadiens' struggles, logging 11 points, 66 shots on net, 99 hits, 57 blocked shots and a minus-10 rating in 44 appearances.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Scores in win

    Petry scored a goal on two shots while adding four hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 shootout win over the Islanders.

    Petry's wrist shot from the point eluded Ilya Sorokin to give Montreal a 1-0 lead midway through the first period. Much of the credit for the goal goes to Michael Pezzetta and Ryan Poehling, both of whom doggedly battled for the pack behind the New York net. For Petry, it was his third straight game with a point and second time in three games with a goal. Any sort of life he shows now could help general manager Kent Hughes move Petry before the trade deadline.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Sets up pair

    Petry had two assists, four shots on net, three hits, three blocked shots and a minor penalty in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over St. Louis.

    Petry, who's registered 40-plus points in four consecutive seasons, has severely undershot expectations in 2021-22. Thursday's effort may have been his best of the season. It was his first multi-point outing and gives Petry three points over the last two games. After being the secondary helper on Montreal's first goal, Petry provided the primary assistance on Cole Caufield's game-winner in overtime.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Provides rare offense

    Petry scored a goal on two shots while adding three hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Sabres.

    Petry's blast from the point ricocheted off a Sabre in front and past Craig Anderson to tie the game at 2-2 during rollicking five-goal second period. The goal was just Petry's second and snapped an 11-game goal drought.

  • Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Penalty leads to game-winner

    Petry logged one shot on net, two hits, three blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Columbus.

    Petry's dispirited season continued Saturday. An ill-timed tripping penalty late in the third period led to Patrik Laine's game-winning goal with eight seconds left and extended Montreal's losing streak to nine games. The defenseman, who has six points and is minus-13 over 40 games, has been unhappy, partially because his family in Michigan is unable to cross the Canadian border. He also voiced his displeasure to Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette about the system deployed by former coach Dominique Ducharme. New GM Kent Hughes is attempting to trade Petry, but the blueliner's hefty contract is an impediment.
