Another 27-year-old, right-handed blueliner available at the trade deadline is Jeff Petry of the Edmonton Oilers.

Petry will be an unrestricted free agent July 1.

It doesn’t appear Edmonton has any intention of re-signing him, so the Oilers will try to turn him for an asset prior to March 2.

He’s not on the same level of Toronto's Cody Franson, for example, but given the interest around the league to add a right-handed blueliner, the Oilers should have no problem finding a home for him.
