Bad surprise and bad news for Jeff Petry

Published March 7, 2022 at 6:11 PM

The Montreal Canadiens organization has just announced a bad surprise. Defenseman Jeff Petry, who has really started to play well again recently, is out with an upper body injury.

An injury that comes at a very bad moment. If the injury is more serious than expected, that could end the rumors, for those who believe that he will be traded by March 21 (in two weeks).

Despite everything, the defenseman practiced lightly today, with a non-contact jersey. He will be day-to-day, but is expected to be out for the next game (and maybe more).

«Jeff Petry is wearing a no-contact jersey at practice. He's day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Jake Evans, Paul Byron, Joel Edmundson, Jonathan Drouin and Christian Dvorak are also practicing with no-contact jerseys.

Jake Allen is back at practice as well."
