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 was feeling better on Sunday after leaving Saturday's game with a head injury.

Petry was sandwiched by David Jones and Sven Baertschi into the glass and did not return to action. "Jeff's doing better this morning, we're cautiously optimistic that he dodged a bullet," coach Dallas Eakins said. He had six points and a minus-10 rating in 30 games. Consider Petry day-to-day for now.

Jeff Petry suffered a head injury in the second period Saturday and did not return.

The Flames David Jones and Sven Baertschi sandwiched Petry into the glass and Petry suffered the head injury. Consider him day-to-day for now. He has six points and a minus-10 rating in 30 games so he really should not have been in your fantasy lineup.

Jeff Petry will be back in the Edmonton Oilers lineup Saturday.

Petry was a healthy scratch on Thursday as Martin Marincin made his NHL debut. Coach Dallas Eakins sat Petry as he thought that the defenseman had some tough games of late and he wanted Petry to observe. Marincin or Corey Potter will sit out on Saturday. Petry has six points and a minus-10 rating in 29 games this season and leads the Oilers in average time on ice at 22:03 minutes per game.

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 posted a goal and a fight in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Columbus.

His third goal of the year opened the scoring in the contest and he dropped the gloves with Jackets forward Matt Calvert later in the first period. Petry has been very good of late with five points, 11 penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating in his past five games. Ryan Whitney and Magnus Paajarvi also scored for the Oilers in the defeat.

Jeff Petry was healthy enough to play in Saturday's 6-4 win over Colorado Saturday.

Petry was questionable for the game after twisting his leg in Friday's practice, but the blueliner was given over 22 minutes of ice time and registered five shots in the win. He's clearly feeling fine.

Jeff Petry twisted his leg during Friday's practice.

Petry left the skate as a result. Consider him questionable for Saturday's game.

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.

The Oilers signed Jeff Petry to a two-year, $3.5 million extension.

The 24-year-old logged 21:45 of ice time per game this past season -- tops on the team -- accumulating two goals and 23 assists in the 73 games. The young rearguard also had 126 hits and 126 blocked shots. A contract for $1.75 million per year seems like money well spent for Edmonton.

Jeff Petry is expected to be back in Edmonton's lineup Thursday after he was hit in the face by a clearing attempt on Mar. 20.

"The puck came off the glass and I couldn't get my hand up quickly enough," he said. "That play (keeping the puck in at the point) happens a thousand times and nothing happens. The puck clipped my visor, right below the eye. I wasn't sure if there were any fractures at the time. I'm fine now. I've still got all my teeth." Petry missed two games because his face was badly swollen.

Jeff Petry (face) will not play Sunday against the Ducks.

There is no word on whether he will be able to play in games this week. The Oilers have re-called Colten Teubert from the AHL and will dress him along with Cam Barker in place of the injured Petry and Ladislav Smid against Anaheim Sunday.
