|Assets:||Is silky smooth in his own end and on the breakout. Skates well and can jump up into the play. Owns a good hard shot and offensive acumen. Can log huge minutes, too.|
|Flaws:||Lacks the physicality to be a truly dominant two-way defender. At times, he has a few brain farts with the puck. Needs to continue filling out his big frame for better stamina.|
|Career Potential:||Solid, puck-moving and big-minute defenseman.|

Oilers to scratch ice time leader Jeff Petry | 12/05/2013 4:09 PM

"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 got bigger in the off-season | 01/22/2013 10:20 AM
NewsJeff Petry worked out during the summer so he would have an easier time winning one-on-one battles as a defenseman.
ImpactIt 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.
