He's not going to get a crack but I feel his performance thus far, even with a lot of rookie errors and close calls, they will make a spot available for him next season.
Well they are going to have to risk waivers on Petrecki. What are they going to do, keep him up all season? That hurts the team, and hurts him even more. He is clearly not NHL ready. He needs to go back to the AHL soon or his development will really suffer.
