David Perron News
Vegas Golden Knights
The Blues have signed David Perron to a two-year deal worth $7.5 million ($3.75M AAV).
Perron, 28, was a first round pick of the Blues back in 2007 and spent the first six years of his career in St. Louis. Since then he has played for the Oilers, Penguins and Ducks, but has returned to the Blues. He is coming off of a 12-goal, 24-assist season with the Pens and Ducks and should slide right back into the Blues’ top-9.
Perron (shoulder) will return to the Ducks lineup for Game 1.
Perron has been sidelined with a separated shoulder since March 20th, but returns just in time for the start of the playoffs. The 27-year-old has enjoyed life in Anaheim, collecting 20 points (8G / 12A) in 28 games since being traded by Pittsburgh. He will skate on the left side of Ryan Getzlaf with Chris Stewart on the other wing.
Perron (shoulder) will return to Anaheim; expected to be out week-to-week.
Perron suffered the injury in Sunday’s win in Winnipeg. He will head back to California and is expected to miss the remaining four-games of the Ducks’ road-trip. Head coach Bruce Boudreau believes that Perron is week-to-week, so we may not see him on the ice for a few weeks. Expect Nick Ritchie to see increased playing time while Perron is out.
Perron (upper-body) missed practice on Monday; questionable for Tuesday’s game in Montreal.
Perron suffered an upper-body injury in the Ducks win over the Jets on Sunday. He played just 5:07 TOI before retiring to the dressing room and his status for Tuesday’s game is in doubt. Consider him day-to-day until the Ducks announce further information.
The Ducks have acquired David Perron and Adam Clendening from the Penguins for Carl Hagelin.
Perron will be a unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Despite playing the majority of the season with Sidney Crosby, Perron had just 16 points (4G / 12A) in 43 games. He could slide into Hagelin’s spot in the Ducks top six, but he remains a low-end wing option in standard 12-team leagues.
Perron (illness) is doubtful for Sunday's game.
Perron missed Saturday’s game with an illness and it doesn’t look like he will go tonight either. Monitor his status during pre-game warmups and if he does end up playing, expect him to skate with Sidney Crosby and Patric Hornqvist.
Perron will not play this afternoon because of an illness.
There was no word prior to warmups that Perron was dealing with an illness, but he will sit this afternoon, so Patric Hornqvist will replace him on the first line. Perron has no points and is a minus-5 in his last five games. Monitor Perron’s status prior to Sunday’s contest.
Perron (illness) is on the ice for warmups; he is expected to play tonight.
Perron (illness) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Perron left Monday’s practice early with cold-like symptoms, but he was back on the ice for the Penguins game day skate this morning. He will be a game-time decision along with Kris Letang and Patric Hornqvist.
Perron will play on the top-line with Sidney Crosby in his Penguins debut.
There is no word on how all four lines will shakeout or who will come out of the lineup, but we do know that Perron will start his Penguins career on a line with Crosby. He leaves the dumpster fire in Edmonton to play with the best player in the World, not a bad deal for Perron. His fantasy value is obviously on the rise.
Perron will make his Penguins debut on Saturday vs. Montreal.
Perron, who was acquired from the Oilers on Friday, did not play last night vs. Tampa Bay but will play tonight vs. the Canadiens. Because of the back-to-back the Penguins did not have a morning skate, so there is no word on who Perron is going to play with tonight. You would have to think that they will ease him in and they could move him around between Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to see where he fits best.
The Penguins have acquired David Perron from the Oilers for a 2015 first round pick and Rob Klinkhammer.
The Penguins have battled injuries all season long, so they have shipped a draft pick to a rebuilding team for a top-6 forward. Perron had a career high-28 goals and 57 points last season, but has just 19 points (5G / 14A) in 38 games this season. His fantasy value is certainly on the rise now that he moves from the 27th ranked offence to the sixth best.
Perron (neck) taking warmups with Oilers, will play.
Perron missed the last four games, he will play with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. Perron has two goals and seven assists in 13 games.
David Perron joined the Oilers for practice on Friday. He skated on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle but it’s not yet known whether he will play.
Perron has missed his last four games. After initially missing the team’s game against Toronto with an illness, a neck injury got aggravated and he has been out for the past three as a result of that. The Oilers play at 1 p.m EST so we will find out if Perron will play shortly.
