Perreault set up two goals in a 4-2 win over Toronto on Wednesday. Perreault is a great secondary source of offense for the Jets, as he's now up to 10 points in 13 games. His value takes a bit of a hit in leagues that count SOG (12 total this year and none in the last three games), but the 27-year-old deserves to be owned in most leagues given his affinity for finding the scoresheet since coming to Winnipeg (51 points in 75 games) last season.
Perreault factored into both Jets goals Monday, dishing out two assists in a 4-2 loss to the Islanders. That's two straight two-assist outings for Perreault, who has looked great on a line with Mark Scheifele and rookie Nikolaj Ehlers. He also saw 2:59 on the mad advantage in this one, third only to Dustin Byfuglien and Blake Wheeler.
Perreault delivered two assists in Friday's 3-1 win over the Devils. Perreault should get plenty of opportunities to produce offensively while skating on the second line opposite Nikolaj Ehlers and with high-flying talent Mark Scheifele at center. While there is no denying that Perreault can make things happen with the puck, he's had trouble staying healthy in his NHL career. Since entering the league in 2009-10, he hasn't appeared in 70 or more contests in a single season, making him a high risk and high reward type, particularly in seasonal leagues.
Mathieu Perreault returned to practice Monday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
