Perreault (undisclosed) is participating in pregame warmups ahead of Game 4 against Calgary on Thursday and appears set to play, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports. There's always the chance Perreault could take a twirl and not feel good enough to play, but he was a participant in Thursday's morning skate, so it seems likely he'll be good to go -- especially since he's taking line rushes with Cody Eakin and Jansen Harkins on the third unit. With the Jets on the brink of elimination down 2-1 in the series and without stars Mark Scheifele (leg) and Patrik Laine (wrist), Perreault will be a welcome re-addition to the lineup.
Perreault (undisclosed) was on the ice for Thursday's morning skate ahead of a Game 4 clash with Calgary, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Perreault hasn't officially been given the all-clear to suit up versus the Flames, but the fact that he was able to take part in the game-day skate is certainly a good sign. Where Perreault fits into the lineup against Calgary will depend on the availability of Patrik Laine (wrist). If Laine can't play, then Perreault should slot into his spot on the second line.
Perreault (undisclosed) will not return to Tuesday's Game 3 clash against the Flames. Perreault was on the receiving end of an awkward hit near the boards, and after a trial skate before the third period, elected he didn't feel well enough to carry on. Perreault becomes the fourth Jets forward to be dealing with injury, with Mark Scheifele (leg), Patrik Laine (wrist) and Mason Appleton (undisclosed) all absent Tuesday. Jack Roslovic was moved up to the second line with Perreault exiting the game.
Perreault (upper body) scored a power-play goal, dished six hits and skated 8:05 in Friday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights. Perreault was eased back into action, but he was able to get a goal at 14:00 of the second period. The 32-year-old forward missed 16 contests with the upper-body issue. He's at 15 points, 70 shots and 66 hits through 47 games this year. Expect Perreault to continue in a bottom-six role for the remainder of the year.
Perreault (upper body) will rejoin the lineup for Friday's game against the Golden Knights, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports. After more than a month on the sidelines, Perreault will aim to knock off some rust Friday while slotting back into a bottom-six role for the Jets. He logged time on the power play prior to his injury, though it's unclear if he will immediately regain a spot on one of the Jets' units.
