Oilers agree to terms with defenseman Petry
The Edmonton Oilers agreed to terms with defenseman Jeff Petry on a one-year contract reportedly worth just under $3.1 million on Monday.

The Edmonton Oilers on Monday agreed to terms with defenseman Jeff Petry on a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed, but "Hockey Night in Canada's" Elliotte Friedman reports Petry will make about $3.1 million.

Selected by the Oilers in the second round (No. 45) of the 2006 NHL Draft, Petry, 26, had 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) and 42 penalty minutes in 80 games last season. He led Edmonton in blocked shots (132) and hits (181), the third straight season he ranked in the top two on the Oilers in hits.

Petry has spent his entire NHL career with the Oilers, and has 59 points (13 goals, 46 assists) and 107 penalty minutes in 236 games. The Ann Arbor, Mich., native represented the United States at the 2014 IIHF World Championship, where he had four assists in eight games, and played in the tournament in 2012 and 2013.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
