MONTREAL CANADIENS PLAYER REQUESTS TRADE BECAUSE OF CANADIAN VACCINE POLICIES

JUL 6, 2022  (11H58)      RYAN
The Montreal Canadiens were almost at the top of the mountain in 2021, losing to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup finals, but fell all the way to the bottom in the 2021-22 season finishing last in the league. The Canadiens lost captain Shea Weber due to injury, future hall of fame goaltender Carey Price due to injury and substance abuse and top shut down center Phillip Danault to free agency.

It was a tough season for the Habs and that hit some of the veterans and young players pretty hard. Habs veteran Jeff Petry had a rough season, after being on pace to set career highs the year before when for awhile he was even in the Norris conversation. After finishing with 42 points in 55 games the year prior, he dropped to a poor 27 points in 68 games this season.



With the Habs officially starting a rebuild, it was rumoured that Jeff Petry wanted out of Montreal, but we have now discovered it's not due to the rebuild.

Jeff Petry wants out of Montreal due to vaccine policies in place in Canada versus the United States. According to Canadiens General Manager Kent Hughes:

Petry wanting out is not about Montreal, it's more about vaccination issues and family issues as well, they're expecting a 4th boy. For example, could they get their mother-in-law in if she's not vaccinated? Hard for a Mom to care for 4 kids while he's on the road.
