Jeff Petry will return to Montreal's blue line Saturday night against Ottawa.

Jeff Petry (knee) seems set to return on Saturday.

The injury forced Petry from the game and he never returned. The 28-year-old missed 31 games in 2015-16 because of various injuries. He'll be re-evaluated on Monday. Right now, Petry should be considered day-to-day.

Jeff Petry had a goal and an assist in Montreal's 4-3 win over Boston.

This tilt was played at the Videotron Center in Quebec City. Petry got the Canadiens on the board and cut Boston's lead to 2-1 at the 13:29 mark of the second period. He then picked up the primary assist on Alex Galchenyuk's game-tying goal 38 seconds into the final frame. Daniel Carr scored the game-winner for Montreal. Petry is a good puck moving defenseman, but that doesn't necessarily translate into a ton of points for him during the regular season.

Jeff Petry told reporters he would happily switch to the left side to partner with Shea Weber on the Canadiens' first defenseman unit.

Petry, like Weber, is a right-handed shot, but the veteran rearguard seems to be almost volunteering to shift over for the chance to play with the talented Weber. And why not? If Petry does get this gig look for both his point total and plus/minus to improve from 2015-16.
