Montreal Canadiens Rumors: 2 Possible Landing Spots for Jeff Petry

Although the Montreal Canadiens recently brought back Jeff Petry, a trade centering around the veteran defenseman seems quite possible. As a result, let's go over two teams who could consider making a push for him.

Dallas Stars: The Dallas Stars were previously interested in Petry, and it seems very possible that they could make a push for him again. This is especially the case when noting that they have been looking to add a top-four right-shot defenseman all summer. As a result, do not be surprised at all if the Stars end up being in the Petry sweepstakes yet again.

Nashville Predators: The Nashville Predators could use a boost on the right side of their defensive group, and Petry would give them just that. Petry would be a fit on their second pairing and a solid addition to their power play if acquired. He also would give them another veteran who would help mentor their younger players.

We will need to wait and see if these two clubs end up acquiring Petry before the start of the season, but do not be surprised if they are in the mix for his services.
