St Louis Blues

The Blues have signed David Perron to a four-year, $16M ($4.0M AAV) contract.

Perron was originally drafted by the Blues and played for them from 2008-to-2013 and against in 2017. The 30-year-old returns to St. Louis after one year in Vegas, where he posted career-highs in assists (50) and points (66). Perron will find himself back in the Blues’ top-6, where he will likely play alongside Ryan O’Reilly.

Perron is expected to draw back into the Vegas lineup for Game 5.

Perron was a healthy scratch for Game 4, but it looks like he will replace Ryan Carpenter on the Golden Knights’ third line. Perron is still searching for his first playoff goal since April 23rd, 2016—a span of 27 games—but he has eight assists in 14 games this postseason.

Perron (upper-body) took part in line rushes on Monday; may return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Perron has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury, but was buck at practice yesterday and could play tonight vs. the Ducks. Perron has yet to be cleared to play but a decision will be made after today’s morning skate.

Perron left Friday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Perron was labeled as day-to-day after the game, clouding his status for Saturday’s tilt in Arizona. Perron played just 9:58 TOI before exiting Friday’s game following a collision with Sharks forward Timo Meier. If Perron can’t play on Saturday, look for either Oscar Lindberg or Brendan Leipsic to move onto a line with Erik Haula and James Neal.

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.
