Jeff Petry: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Edmonton's first round pick in the 2006 draft is expected to return to the USHL in the fall.
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.
