The Canadiens make a concrete gesture toward Jeff Petry

BY MARCO    AUGUST 15, 2023  (9:34)
Eric Engels spoke to Jeff Petry and his wife last week. The journalist's words are the only ones we've had so far, but they're quite revealing.

Engels mentions that Petry is aware that Kent Hughes is trying to trade him. However, with no communication from the GM on the subject, we were always in doubt. But that just changed.

The Habs have confirmed on their official page that they are trying to trade the defenseman.

"The Habs are reporting their own trade rumors. It's on the Tricolore's official app (and official website)."

It couldn't be more revealing as a publication. While seeing Petry on the market is hardly surprising, it does prove that trading him is a priority for the organization.
