RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Plucked from the Oilers at the tail end of 2014-15, Petry was signed to a six-year, $33 million deal last summer to provide the Canadiens with a quality defender. He more or less met expectations, but rarely delivered offensively, and a sports hernia ended his 2015-16 season early. Petry’s minus-6 was his best since the strike-shortened 2012-13 season – a rare good year for his old team, the Oilers – and it surely would have been better had Carey Price been stopping pucks all season. Petry worked well on the second pairing, seeing time with Alexei Emelin and Nathan Beaulieu, and he posted a career-best Corsi For of 54.4 percent, which also led Montreal’s defensemen. He’s far from an elite scorer, having notched just 16 points in 51 games, but his .31 points per game pace represented the second-best rate of his career. Petry will return to a spot on the second pairing to bear a defensive burden again for the Habs in 2016-17.

2015-16

The Habs acquired Petry from Edmonton at the trade deadline and locked him up to a long-term extension in June, so he's expected to be a steady presence on the Montreal blue line for years to come. However, it's questionable what sort of upside he can offer fantasy owners -- even the uptick in scoring Petry saw after the trade (seven points in 19 games) would only translate to 30 points over a full season. He'll remain an asset in leagues that count hits and blocks, and his plus/minus is likely to improve, but the fantasy appeal is otherwise limited.

2014-15

Petry's claim to fame for fantasy owners won't be in his offensive abilities (17 points), but may be in his ability to stop frozen vulcanized rubber with his body (132 last season) and lay hits (181). In other words, he's not afraid to throw his body around for the benefit of the team, something he will have to continue to do in order to remain in the lineup.

2013-14

Petry is slated to be paired with Phillip Larsen as the Oilers third defensive pair, but that is hardly written in stone. He will be in a battle with three or four other players for what may be the final spot on defense. Petry is a solid d-man, but hardly spectacular. And certainly not the type to offer much help to fantasy owners.

2012-13

Petry is a solid defenseman who played on the Oilers' top pairing last season. He scored two goals and added 23 assists, but his future is more of a top four d-man. He's good in his own zone, but lacks true offensive upside to be given big power play minutes. Expect about 30 points and 100 each of hits and blocked shots.

2011-12

Petry had his first go around with the Oilers last season, scoring a single goal and adding four assists in 35 games. He is a smart defenseman who has a mean streak, and sees the ice well in front of him. He can be an effective d-man at the NHL level, but may not start the season with Edmonton, though injuries and roster moves could have him back with the big club before long.

2010-11

Petry made his professional debut late last season with Springfield, playing eight games, and will start the season with Springfield this season. In dynasty leagues he is a player to keep an eye on as he possesses the skills to eventually be a top flight offensive defenseman. He can pass, shoot, and plays with an edge. He is unlikely to make his Oilers debut this season however.

2009-10

Petry was the Oilers second round draft pick in 2006. In 80 college games he has five goals and 38 points. He is still a few years away from being able to compete on the pro level.

2008-09

Legit top two defenseman who will return to Michigan State for his sophomore season. If he were to leave college and turn pro he could very well be on the Oilers blue line next season.

2007-08

Petry has the talent to be a solid, two-way defender for the Oilers. He needs time to develop, which should start this year as he'll attend Michigan State for his freshman year in the Fall.

2006-07

Edmonton's first round pick in the 2006 draft is expected to return to the USHL in the fall.

2005-06

Petry carries the dreaded "projectable frame" tag which means he's eons away from the NHL. He has the potential to contribute a little offense, but it's unlikely he'll be anything but a thrid pairing guy.
