Montreal, QC, Canada (4E Sports) - The Montreal Canadiens have acquired defenseman Jeff Petry and forward Brian Flynn Monday via separate trades with the Edmonton Oilers and the Buffalo Sabres .
The Canadiens got Petry from the Oilers in exchange for a second-round and a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.
Flynn, for his part, was traded by the Sabres for a fifth-round pick in 2016.
The 27-year-old Petry has four goals and 15 points in 59 games this season. A second-round pick (No. 45) by the Oilers in the 2006 NHL Draft, he has 17 goals and 74 points in 295 NHL games.
The 26-year-old Flynn has a career-high 17 points (five goals) in 54 games this season. He has 17 goals and 41 points in 159 NHL games.
"I obviously don't expect to go [to Montreal] and play the 20 minutes a night that I've been playing here," Flynn told the Sabres website. "They've got a really deep lineup, a lot of good forwards, a lot of guys who can score."
"If I do play more of a defensive role or kill some penalties and things like that, whatever I can do to help the team win, that's what I'm going to do," he added.
