Perreault signed a one-year, $950,000 deal with the Canadiens on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Perrault has found a new home after spending the last seven seasons in Winnipeg. The 33-year-old had put up six consecutive seasons of 30 points or more but has failed to register 20 in back-to-back campaigns. He'll look to have a resurgent year with a move back to his hometown team for his 13th year in the NHL.
Perreault registered an assist in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3. Perreault set up Adam Lowry's tally at 17:51 of the second period. The 33-year-old Perreault has put up two points, seven shots on net, 28 hits and a plus-1 rating through seven playoff contests, mainly in a bottom-six role with power-play time.
Perreault scored a power-play goal and added two hits in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Oilers in Game 3. Perreault helped the Jets turn the tide of the contest with his tally at 11:41 of the third period. The 33-year-old put up 19 points (four on the power play) in 56 regular-season outings, mainly in a bottom-six role. With the Jets' forwards at full health with the return of Nikolaj Ehlers (upper body) Sunday, Perreault will likely be limited to a bottom-six role. He could salvage some fantasy value if he remains on the second power-play unit.
Perreault recorded an assist in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Canucks. Perreault has put up helpers in consecutive games since he snapped a 10-game point drought. The 33-year-old forward has earned 19 points (four on the power play), a plus-7 rating, 55 shots on net and 78 hits through 55 contests. If he can get on the scoresheet once more, he'll return to the 20-point threshold he missed last season.
Perreault scored a power-play goal on two shots while dishing out a pair of hits in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Ottawa. Perreault found the back of the net 2:07 into the third period while on the man advantage, loading up and roofing a snap shot from the right dot to give Winnipeg a 3-1 lead. It was just the second power-play tally all year for Perreault, who has nine goals and 17 points in 43 games overall.
