Jeff Petry News
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Jeff Petry (upper body) has been activated from Injured Reserve and is a game-time decision for Friday's clash with the Senators. The veteran has been out with an upper-body injury since Dec. 10 but appears to be on track to return Friday. Petry boasts 12 points from 28 outings this season with 44 shots, 89 hits, 54 blocks and a plus-four rating. With Kris Letang (lower body) still unavailable, Petry is set to be Pittsburgh's No. 1 defenseman for the time being, and he should be a nice addition to any fantasy team.
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Jeff Petry will miss Monday's meeting with Dallas because of an upper-body injury. Various reports suggest that the injury is related to his left arm. Petry, who has recorded 12 points in 28 games this season, will sit out his first match of the campaign. With Kris Letang recently missing time because of a stroke, the Penguins blue line seems incapable of being healthy. The team did well to cover for Letang but making up for Petry is yet another challenge. The veteran averages over 22 minutes per game, and in addition to his offensive play, Petry has also made an enormous impact defensively with 89 hits and 54 blocks.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired defenseman Jeff Petry and forward Ryan Poehling from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for defenseman Mike Matheson and a fourth-round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft. Petry's production declined during the 2021-22 NHL season as the 34-year-old scored six goals and finished with 27 points, ending a streak of four consecutive seasons of 40-plus points and double-digit goal totals. Petry has three years remaining on his four-year, $25 million contract, and the veteran defenseman will gain fantasy value from his move to the Penguins heading into the upcoming season.
Montreal Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry (lower body) could return to action Saturday against Toronto and is officially regarded as a game-time decision. The veteran rearguard has sat out seven games. Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports has reported that Petry will play, so it appears that it's very likely that he will be back in the lineup. Things haven't gone according to plan for the 34-year-old this season, with him boasting just 16 points in 57 games. He's done better defensively, recording 124 hits and 93 blocks.
