Jeff Petry D EDM 3 Days
Jeff Petry (head) was on the ice with the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.
Petry sustained the injury during Saturday's game, but he's already symptom-free. "I had a little bit of a headache the next day but we couldn't pinpoint it to the hit. I've had a little sinus thing going on and when I took medicine for that, the headache cleared up so this is just precautionary," Petry explained. If all goes well, he'll probably play on Thursday.

Jeff Petry will be a healthy scratch Thursday.
The move is especially surprising because Petry leads the Oilers in average ice time at 22:03 per contest. Coach Dallas Eakins is referring to Petry's seat in the press box as an opportunity to "reset" after some tough outings. He appears to taking the decision in stride, which is a good sign. "Dallas said I have to be accountable and like I've said I haven't been playing well ... he wants me to watch and hit the reset button," said Petry. "I can make this situation frustrating or I can sit out and make a positive out of it. He wants me to be harder to play against." Petry has six points and a minus-10 rating in 29 games.

Jeff Petry worked out during the summer so he would have an easier time winning one-on-one battles as a defenseman.
It worked as Petry definitely got bigger. "Jeff was our No. 1 ice-time defenseman last year and like many other of our young players, used the time off to strengthen himself," coach Ralph Krueger said. "He's added some pounds and you could see the benefits of that (Sunday) night. After a few adjustments, you could see that there were some situations where we would have liked him to be a little more aggressive and he picked up on that really quick and finished very strong. He knew he needed to add some poundage to have a stronger push back, to be more uncomfortable to play against and we're pleased where he is right now." Petry once again led the Oilers in ice time on Sunday. He is worth selecting, especially in pools that use hits and blocks.
