Perron (COVID-19 protocols) told reporters he probably would have been cleared to play if the Blues had extended the series to a Game 5, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports. Perron -- who also confirmed he tested positive despite having been vaccinated -- missed all four games in the first-round series against the Avs. Prior to being sidelined, the 32-year-old winger was red hot with six goals and 10 assists in his previous 11 outings, including five power-play points. Perron should continue to fill a top-nine role for the Blues heading into next season in addition to logging minutes with the man advantage. As such, he could be a nice late-round pickup in season-long formats as a potential 20-goal scorer.
Perron (COVID-19 protocols) will remain out of the lineup for Game 4 against Colorado on Sunday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports. Perron has missed the entire postseason to date due to his stint in the COVID-19 protocols. He'll need the Blues to win Sunday to give the winger a chance to return this season, as a loss would hand Colorado a 4-0 series sweep.
Perron remains in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and won't be an option against Colorado for Game 3 on Friday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports. At this point, Perron should probably be considered out indefinitely and could miss the entirety of the first-round series. Even if he is cleared to rejoin the team, the veteran winger could struggle to get his conditioning back to the level it needs to be in order to suit up right away. Jordan Kyrou figures to stay in a first-line role with Perron unavailable.
Perron (COVID-19 protocols) will not play in Game 2 against Colorado on Wednesday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Perron was the team's leading scorer during the regular season, and it goes without saying that his placement in the league's protocols couldn't have come at a worse time. Nonetheless, the veteran remains out without a clear timetable for a return as the Blues look to even the series without him.
Perron (COVID-19 protocols) will miss Monday's Game 1 against the Avalanche, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Perron's been unable to participate in any team activities since being placed in the protocols Saturday. His absence is likely to linger deep into this series, but another update should surface prior to Wednesday's Game 2.
