Petrovic saw just 14:04 of ice time against Detroit on Tuesday, well off his 17:23 season average.
Considering Petrovic has just two helpers in 32 games this season, split between the Panthers and Oilers, the defenseman is unlikely to produce much offensively the rest of the way. The 26-year-old's lack of scoring touch limits his fantasy value to formats that utilize hits (86) and blocks (42).
Petrovic (concussion) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against Detroit, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Petrovic's return will bolster the Oilers' depth at defense, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only totaled 15 points in 98 appearances over the past two seasons. The 26-year-old blueliner will skate with Brandon Manning on Edmonton's third pairing against the Red Wings.
Petrovic (concussion) will miss Sunday's game versus the Hurricanes, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Petrovic will sit out a sixth consecutive contest as he continues his recovery from a concussion suffered back on Jan. 8. Still on injured reserve, the 26-year-old will need to come off before being eligible to play.
Petrovic (concussion) will be out of the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Vancouver, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
The Oilers need to make room for Kailer Yamamoto (upper body) to be activated off injured reserve, which will almost certainly mean Petrovic will be designated in his place. By utilizing retroactive IR, the club avoids having to make a decision on sending a player down to the minors until the blueliner is ready to return.
Petrovic (concussion) will be evaluated Monday and could rejoin the active roster ahead of Wednesday's game in Vancouver.
Petrovic will not play Monday versus the Sabres, but the 26-year-old appears close to getting back into the lineup. With only two points to show for in 31 games this season, even when healthy, Petrovic is not worthy of a fantasy roster spot. Another update on the defenseman's status should be made available in the next day or so.
Petrovic is in the concussion protocol and will miss Edmonton's next three games, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Petrovic has just one assist in 26 contests this year, so his absence is unlikely to impact most fantasy owners. With the Edmonton native out of action, Matt Benning figures to slot back into the lineup.
Petrovic (undisclosed) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Panthers, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.
Petrovic departed Tuesday's contest against the Sharks prematurely because of the undisclosed issue and it appears he will miss at least one more game as a result. Assuming it holds up as expected, either Matt Benning or Brandon Manning will draw into the defensive pairings.
Petrovic won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Sharks due to an undisclosed injury.
Petrovic took a hit from behind in the second period and left the game immediately. This is the 26-year-old's fifth game with the Oilers, and he has a minus-5 rating and one assist in that span. Expect an update on his condition before Thursday's game versus the Panthers -- his former team.
The Panthers traded Petrovic to the Oilers in exchange for Chris Wideman and a 2019 third-round draft pick, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Petrovic is having a disappointing season, posting one assist and going minus-8 over 26 outings. The 2010 second-round pick never has lived up to expectations, falling under 20 points in each of the last three seasons. Petrovic will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. He'll likely work in the bottom pairing for the Oilers, and he'll need to make an impact quickly before Kris Russell (undisclosed) and Oscar Klefbom (finger) return to the lineup.
Petrovic returned to the lineup with a minus-3 rating during a 4-3 loss to the Blues on Tuesday.
A rough outing like this one puts Petrovic in danger of winding up in the press box for the next Panthers game. None of the goals were his fault in particular, but he didn't stand out in a positive way in his first game back on the ice after being a healthy scratch for three straight. It doesn't help that the 26-year-old blueliner has only one point in 21 games this season.
Petrovic will watch Saturday's road game against the Rangers from the press box, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
The Alberta native takes a seat having gone 11 straight games without a point. Most defensemen aren't going to be ripe fantasy options since they need to shut down the opposition as the top priority, but every now and then you'll come across a blueliner who habitually joins the rush and chips in some goals and assists. Petrovic is not that guy, but he does have 38 hits and 20 blocked shots over 11 contests this season.
Petrovic collected three hits and two blocks during Sunday's 5-1 win over the Senators.
Petrovic now has 46 hits, which leads the Panthers by 14 and 27 blocks, which leads the team by 11. He has only one point on the season but has provided a heavy presence on the bottom pairing for the Cats.
Petrovic threw three hits and added two blocks and three shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders.
The 6-foot-4 defenseman now leads the Panthers in both hits (26) and blocks (13) through the first eight games of the season. Last season, Petrovic came only three hits behind team leader Vincent Trocheck (145), even with 15 fewer games played.
Petrovic drew the penalty that sparked the Panthers' three-goal comeback in their eventual 5-4 shootout loss to the Flyers on Tuesday.
Just when it looked like the Panthers needed a spark, Petrovic challenged the Flyers bench late in the second period, drawing a roughing penalty from Wayne Simmonds. The Panthers took the momentum and ran, scoring their first power-play goal of the season and adding two more in the third to draw even with the Flyers. Petrovic added on two shots on goal and two hits as he stepped into his temporary role on the second pairing while Mike Matheson is suspended.
Petrovic led all Panthers skaters with five hits during Saturday's 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay. He also blocked three shots while contributing three shots of his own.
Despite only seeing 12:59 of ice time, Petrovic had an eventful game. Only Alex Killorn and Ryan McDonagh of the Lightning could match his hit total by the game's end, and the 26-year-old was on the ice for the only goal the Panthers scored. Petrovic will be competing with both MacKenzie Weegar and Bogdan Kiselevich for the third pairing spot, and games like this certainly strengthen his case to stay in the lineup.
Petrovic signed a one-year contract with Florida on Friday.
Petrovic made a career-high 67 appearances for the Panthers last season, in which he notched two goals, 11 helpers and 60 shots. The blueliner won't offer a ton of offensive upside -- his career best is 15 points in a season -- but can still contribute in formats that value hits (142) and blocks (74).
Petrovic has been extended a qualifying offer by the Panthers.
Although he consistently posts around 15 points per season during the last three years, Petrovic's absence from the power play and diminishing ice time in general -- just 14:39 during the 2017-18 campaign -- leaves him firmly off the fantasy radar in the vast majority of leagues. He will remain in a Panthers uniform through at least next season, looking to regain a positive rating after two straight campaigns in the minus.
Petrovic ended the 2017-18 season with a pair of goals and 13 points in 67 contests.
The 26-year-old blueliner has at least been consistent, finishing the last three seasons with 13, 14, and 17 points, respectively. He also recorded 74 blocked shots and 142 hits, his third consecutive season racking up at least 100 hits. He's not much of contributor on offense, but his physicality at least gives him some low-end value in deeper leagues.
Petrovic (lower body) is expected back in the lineup against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Coach Bob Boughner told reporters that Petrovic wasn't quite 100 percent, which is why the team avoided utilizing him in back-to-back games. The Edmonton native logged just 11:40 of ice time in his first game back and will probably see limited minutes again Thursday in order to ease him back into action. With Petrovic available, look for Ian McCoshen to get bumped from the blue line.
Petrovic -- who returned to the lineup Monday -- will sit out Tuesday and is considered day-to-day with a lower-body issue, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Considering Petrovic missed the two games prior to Monday's affair due to a lower-body issue, it wouldn't be surprising if the absences are linked. The blueliner wasn't afraid to get physical in his return to action, racking up seven PIM along with three hits, two blocked shots and a shot on goal over just 11:40 of ice time. His next opportunity to return arrives Thursday against the Blue Jackets, but MacKenzie Weegar will take his place against the Senators.
