4 Comments

The Edmonton Oilers will finish tonight’s game against the Boston Bruins without the services of defenseman Jeff Petry and center Anton Lander.

Petry suffered a rib injury after being hit by an Adam McQuaid shot in the second period.

The club announced Lander suffered a shoulder injury in the middle frame.

Petry, who is set to become an unrestricted free-agent after this season, was rumored to be heading out of Edmonton prior to the March 2 trade deadline. The 27-year-old has 15 points in 57 games this season while averaging 21:11 in ice time a night.

Lander, 23, has split this season with the Oilers and AHL’s Oklahoma City Barons. In 21 games with the parent club Lander has four goals and 11 points.
