Perron recorded two goals and an assist in a 7-2 victory against the Oilers on Tuesday. With the return of Vladimir Tarasenko (upper body), the Blues dropped Perron from the top line before Tuesday's game, but that clearly wasn't an issue for the veteran winger. With his big night, he has his first 20-goal season since 2013-14 and third straight 40-point campaign. A lot of that production has come lately, as Perron has points in 16 consecutive games. He has nine goals and 20 points during that 16-game stretch. Overall, Perron has 20 goals and 40 points in 48 games this season.
Perron is set to be bumped from the top line versus Edmonton on Tuesday following the return of Vladimir Tarasenko. In his two games back from injury, Perron picked up a goal and an assist, but will concede a spot on the first line to Vladimir Tarasenko, who is returning following an extended upper-body injury absence. It has been a tough season for the 30-year-old Perron, as he has been limited to just 47 games due to injury. When in the lineup, the winger has tallied 18 goals and 19 assists, putting him just three points shy of an eighth 40-point campaign.
Perron (upper body) was removed from injured reserve Saturday, signaling that he'll be good to go against the Penguins. The Blues sent rookie Jordan Kyrou back to AHL San Antonio in a corresponding move. Perron's fashioned 17 goals and 18 assists over 45 games in his third career stint with the Blues. He seems to be picking his spots well based on a career-best shooting percentage (20.0), and the top-six winger has 10 power-play points to boot. Perron will be a sneaky DFS option on the heels of a 24-game injury hiatus.
Perron (upper body) will join the Blues on their upcoming three-game road trip, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports. Perron's presence on the trip likely makes him a candidate to return at some point, though coach Craig Berube suggested Tuesday that he's not ready to return yet. The veteran winger hasn't laced up the skates for game action since Jan. 17 against the Bruins, but he has been practicing recently, so a return may finally be on the horizon.
According to coach Craig Berube, Perron (upper body) still isn't ready to rejoin the lineup, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports. When asked about Perron following Tuesday's morning skate, Berube told reporters "When he's ready to play, he'll let us know and we'll have a spot for him," which suggests St. Louis is unsure when the veteran winger may be ready to return to action. Perron hasn't played since Jan. 19 due to an upper-body injury, and with just 14 games remaining on the schedule, the Blues are likely focusing on getting him ready for the playoffs rather than rushing him back before he's fully recovered. Perron has been practicing with the team, which suggests he likely isn't too far off from rejoining the lineup, but at this point he should be considered out indefinitely.
