Apparently, Edmonton Oilers' GM Craig MacTavish has been trying to trade defenseman Jeff Petry "for months".
The fifth year and right handed 27 year old defender is working his way through a one year $3.075M contract, and has compiled 12 goals and 69 points while averaging over 21 minutes per game through 282 career games. This is certainly good news for Oscar Klefbom's future, but it's unclear what the Oilers could get in return a Petry. Jan 25 - 5:54 PM

Jeff Petry will probably be the next player the Oilers discuss in trades, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Petry will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. While Friedman cautions nothing appears imminent, the Oilers have no use in holding onto a defenseman on an expiring contract. He will draw considerable interest as a right-handed shooting blueliner. Petry has eight points this season.

Jeff Petry is drawing interest from the Flyers, according to Elliotte Friedman of HNIC.

Petry is definitely available from the Oilers, however the Flyers don’t have the cap room to fit his $3.075 figure, so for now, this is a no-go. Petry has an assist in seven games this season, while averaging 19:15.

Jeff Petry was a healthy scratch Tuesday night at Los Angeles.

There are trade rumors circling the Edmonton defenseman. According to TSN's Darren Dreger, nothing is imminent, but the Oilers may look to trade him down the line because they believe in young blueliners Oscar Klefbom and Darnell Nurse.

Jeff Petry (shoulder) participated in Edmonton's 5-2 loss to Calgary Thursday night.

Jeff Petry (shoulder) did not get into a pre-season game this season as he was not cleared for contact.

Petry suffered a shoulder injury very early in training camp and although he thinks he is ready to go, Oiler doctors disagree with his assessment. "He’s been driving us crazy but I’ll always defer to our doctors … the last exhibition game may be important to get in but it’s more important that he’s 100 per cent healthy. I don’t see anything that would keep him out of the lineup opening night," coach Dallas Eakins said.

Jeff Petry left Friday's practice with a tweaked shoulder after absorbing a big hit.

Petry is day-to-day, according to coach Dallas Eakins. Given that training camp just started, it's likely that won't hesitate to pull their players off the ice for precautionary reasons, so we're not overly concerned about most day-to-day injuries at this stage.

Jeff Petry has agreed to a one-year, $3.1 million contract for the 2014-15 campaign.

Petry is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer, so he will be the subject of trade rumors if the Oilers once again struggle to make the playoffs. He had 17 points and 42 penalty minutes in 80 games last season.

Jeff Petry is reportedly surfacing in trade discussions.

He has arbitration rights and can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season. The 26-year-old blueliner had seven goals and 17 points in 80 games last season. He also averaged 21:35 of ice time per match, which placed him second on the Oilers.

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.
