Top Mathieu Perreault News

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Remains with big club

    Perreault is still with the Canadiens despite being waived Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Although he's still with the team, Perreault isn't expected to be in the lineup Saturday versus the Senators. The 34-year-old vet has picked up three goals and five points through 18 games this campaign.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Clears waivers

    Perreault cleared waivers Thursday.

    The Canadiens are currently undecided on whether or not they'll reassign the veteran to AHL Laval. If Perreault is traded or sent down to the Rocket, a corresponding update will follow. He has five points in 18 games with the big club this year and hasn't scored a goal since his hat trick Oct. 23 against Detroit.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: On waiver wire

    Perreault was placed on waivers by the Habs on Wednesday.

    Perreault has struggled with injuries this season, in addition to being a periodic healthy scratch, so his impending demotion to the minors shouldn't come as a surprise. With Perreault likely headed to AHL Laval, it could be an indication Josh Anderson (lower body) will be ready to play versus Dallas on Thursday.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Returns after lengthy absence

    Perreault returned to the active lineup Saturday for the first time since Dec. 14. He did not have a fantasy-relevant statistic over 8:41 of ice time.

    Perreault, who missed 22 games with a lower-body injury, was activated from injured reserve to replace Paul Byron (upper body) and skated on the fourth line. Canadiens interim head coach Martin St. Louis also has Cedric Paquette around, but he's been a healthy scratch the last 10 games and hasn't played since Jan. 30.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Expected to play Saturday

    Perreault (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and is likely to play Saturday versus the Senators, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.

    Perreault has missed the last 22 games, but he returned to full participation in practice Friday. His return means Cedric Paquette will be a healthy scratch for this contest. Perreault is expected to play in a fourth-line role as he looks to add to the four points in 14 games he's produced this season.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Full participant at practice

    Perreault (lower body) practiced in a full capacity Friday and is day-to-day.

    The 34-year-old remains on injured reserve, but it sounds like he's close to a return. Perreault has missed the last 22 games with the injury and has recorded four points in 14 outings this season.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Practicing in non-contact jersey

    Perreault (lower body) participated in Tuesday's practice wearing a non-contact jersey, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Perreault has averaged 12:28 of ice time -- 1:13 during the power play -- and logged four points over 14 games this season. The 34-year-old has missed the last 18 games while dealing with a lower-body injury.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Out 3-4 more weeks

    Perreault (lower body) will spend 3-4 more weeks on injured reserve, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    The forward has already been out since Dec. 14 and won't return to the lineup until late February. Perreault's modest offensive contributions before the lower-body injury included three goals and an assist while averaging 12:29 of ice time in 14 contests.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Moves to injured reserve

    Perreault (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

    Perreault missed Thursday's game with the injury, and it appears his absence will last at least a week. The Canadiens indicated Perreault will be out until after the holiday break, so he will miss the next three games at a minimum.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Out with lower-body injury

    Perreault didn't dress for Thursday's game versus the Flyers due to a lower-body injury.

    Perreault is the latest in a long string of injuries for the Canadiens this season. Luckily for the Habs, Joel Armia (undisclosed) and Jake Evans (undisclosed) were both able to return to the lineup for Thursday's game.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Playing Thursday

    Perreault (eye) will be activated off injured reserve and return to action versus Colorado on Thursday.

    Perreault will get back on the ice following a 15-game absence due to his eye injury. In eye games prior to getting hurt, the center tallied three goals, one assist and 11 shots while averaging 11:28 of ice time. While Perreault figures to take on a fourth-line role at even strength, he should still see minutes with the No. 2 power-play unit, bolstering his fantasy value.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Undergoes additional procedure

    Perreault has undergone another surgical procedure on his eye, which has extended his recovery timetable by several weeks.

    Perreault will likely need to wait for the calendar to flip to December before making his return to the lineup. The 33-year-old pivot picked up three goals and four points through eight games before undergoing his first eye procedure.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Designated for injured reserve

    Perreault (eye) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

    Perreault was already expected to be sidelined until mid-November, so his designation for injured reserve won't impact his recovery timeline. In eight games this year, the Quebec native has recorded three goals on 11 shots, one assist and seven hits while averaging 11:29 of ice time. Even with his absence, the center should be capable of challenging for the 30-point threshold for the first time since the 2018-19 campaign.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Out 2-3 weeks

    Perreault will miss 2-3 weeks with an eye injury, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The exact nature of his injury is unclear, but he'll likely miss at least seven or eight games because of it. A more specific return date for Perreault should become available as his recovery progresses.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Undergoes eye procedure

    Perreault has undergone an eye procedure to address his Lattice Retinal Degeneration and will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Perreault will likely be sidelined until mid-November at a minimum. The 33-year-old vet has picked up three goals and one helper through eight games this campaign.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Erupts for hat trick

    Perreault scored three goals on a team-leading six shots in Saturday's 6-1 win over Detroit. He also logged a plus-4 rating.

    Perreault's hat trick was of the natural variety and turned a 3-1 Montreal lead into a 6-1 rout and the team's first win of the season. The goals were also the first of the year for Perreault, who signed with the Canadiens after spending the previous seven seasons with Winnipeg. He snapped one from the left dot in transition to make it 4-1 midway through the second, banged home a loose puck just over two minutes later and put away an empty-netter late in the third. Perreault is now one-third of the way to matching the nine goals he scored in 56 games for the Jets last season.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Notches assist in loss

    Perreault had an assist in 10:59 of ice time in Thursday's 5-1 loss to Buffalo.

    Perreault engaged in a puck battle behind the night, tipping it to Joel Armia, who circled the boards and found defenseman Chris Wideman on the back door for Montreal's lone goal. Other than that, there was little for the Canadiens to celebrate. Last year's Stanley Cup participants are 0-2 with just two goals scored heading into the home opener Saturday against the Rangers. The 33-year-old Perreault, who skates on the fourth line, has one assist, one shot and one hit while averaging just under 10 minutes per game.

  • Canadiens' Mathieu Perreault: Inks deal with Montreal

    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.

  • Jets' Mathieu Perreault: Garners helper

    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.

  • Jets' Mathieu Perreault: Sparks rally with power-play goal

    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.
