Brendan Perlini: Doesn't receive qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini did not get a qualifying offer from the Red Wings and will become a UFA on Friday, Ansar Khan of reports.

Perlini played 40 games between the Red Wings and Blackhawks in 2019-20, registering just four points and a minus-18 rating. The forward is now three years removed from his career-high 30-point output with the Coyotes in 2017-18. Perlini will be on his fourth team in three seasons if he doesn't return to the Red Wings when free agency opens Friday.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Hardly plays in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini, who sat out the previous four games as a healthy scratch, logged just 6:51 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

The Red Wings scratched Justin Abdelkader due to an illness, which paved the way for Perlini to rejoin the lineup. Still, he doesn't see nearly enough ice time to warrant a look in fantasy games.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: All clear Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini (face) will draw into the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Boston, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

The 23-year-old only missed one contest after a laceration on his nose required 23 stitches following a skate to the face. Perlini potted his only goal of the season against Boston last time the two teams faced off Feb. 9. His addition to the lineup will see Justin Abdelkader head to the press box Saturday.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Won't play against Devils
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini (face) will be sidelined versus New Jersey on Thursday and doesn't have a specific timeline to return, Mike Morreale of reports.

Perlini required 23 stitches to close up a laceration on his nose but appears to have avoided any serious damage. The winger remains with the team heading into the next three games of a four-game road trip, so he could still suit up before the club returns to Detroit. The recently returned Robby Fabbri (jaw) should slot into a top-six role with Perlini unavailable.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini took a skate to the face in Tuesday's matchup with Buffalo but didn't suffer any serious injuries, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Perlini logged just 3:49 of ice time prior to Tuesday's incident, in which he recorded one shot and one block. Unless there is significant swelling or other complications, the winger will likely be in the lineup versus the Devils on Thursday.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Finally finds twine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Bruins.

The 23-year-old opened the scoring in the second period, snapping the puck past Tuukka Rask from the faceoff circle. It took Perlini 31 games to finally light the lamp after he scored 14 goals in 68 games last season, and the 12th overall pick in the 2014 draft -- already on his third organization in four seasons -- may need to find some more production in a hurry if he wants to hang onto an NHL roster spot.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: On outside looking in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini has missed three of the past four games as a healthy scratch.

Perlini remains on the active roster as a spare forward. It's not beyond the realm of possibility that he'll end up getting waived and subsequently demoted to AHL Grand Rapids, but seeing as how the Wings still have some fight left in them despite a horrendous record (11-30-3), Perlini should still get the occasional top-level look.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Hits new low in ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini was on the ice for just 12 shifts in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.

Perlini was never on the ice for longer than a minute, and he logged only 06:54 of ice time. This was his lowest clip in 17 games since joining Wings via a trade with the Blackhawks on Oct. 28. Perlini has shown flashes of offensive potential in the past, so it's rather disconcerting that he hasn't carved out a meaningful role on a floundering Detroit team that has lost 11 straight games.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Finds first point with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini generated an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks.

Perlini set up another struggling forward, Taro Hirose, for a goal in the second period. The helper was Perlini's first point of the year in 10 games between the Red Wings and Blackhawks. The 23-year-old has added 18 shots this season. He's getting a chance in a bottom-six role with the Red Wings -- Perlini has averaged 12:30 per game since he was traded. Hopefully getting his first point will help the winger find his scoring touch again.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Still settling in with Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini, whom the Red Wings acquired in a late-October trade with the Blackhawks, is minus-3 and still searching for his first point with the Red Wings through four contests.

A lack of continuity is a bit of a concern for Perlini, as he's moved on to his fourth team since the Coyotes took him 12th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. The Wings desperately need to channel more offense into the bottom-six group, as no other Detroit skater has reached double digits in points aside from the top line of Dylan Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha. Perlini compiled 31 goals between his first two seasons with Arizona, so we know he has it in him if utilized properly.

Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Dealt to Motor City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini was traded to the Red Wings from the Blackhawks in exchange for blueliner Alec Regula on Monday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Perlini requested a trade just a few days ago, as he'd been a healthy scratch for nine of Chicago's 10 games this season. The 23-year-old winger should fit somewhere in Detroit's bottom six and give it a bit of secondary scoring. Perlini has 45 goals in 200 career NHL contests.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Looking for greener pastures
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimmy Greenfield of The Chicago Tribune reports that Perlini and his agent have requested a trade from the Blackhawks.

Perlini has been a healthy scratch for all but one game this season. It's evident the 23-year-old is excess baggage in Chicago. Both the team and player have begun "exploring options" to see whether a trade can be worked out to give Perlini a fresh start. The 12th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft has yet to hit his stride at the NHL level, reaching the 30-point mark only once since entering the league.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Struggling to crack lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini has been a healthy scratch for three of Chicago's first four games of the campaign.

To make matters worse, Perlini only logged 7:49 of ice time in the one contest he appeared in, going scoreless while registering one shot on goal. The 23-year-old winger will likely be buried on the depth chart throughout the campaign, so unless he's moved in a midseason trade, he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Re-signs with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini signed a one-year, $874,125 contract extension with the Blackhawks on Friday.

Perlini showed some promise as a scorer during his first season with the Blackhawks, potting 12 goals while adding three assists in 46 appearances after joining the team via a trade in late November. The 6-foot-3 winger will slot into a bottom-six role for Chicago in 2019-20.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Qualified by Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini has received a qualifying offer from the Blackhawks, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Perlini showed some promise during his first season with Chicago, notching 12 goals and 15 points in 46 appearances after being traded to the team in late November. The Blackhawks clearly think he may still have some untapped potential, so look for them to sign him to a short-term deal in the coming weeks.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Sees large drop in ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini skated only 5:44 in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks.

He didn't take a shift in the third period, extending his point drought to six games with the empty score line. Perlini was not reported injured during or immediately following the game, so the 22-year-old may have found his way into coach Jeremy Colliton's dog house after being given a chance to skate with Patrick Kane and Artem Anisimov.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Another huge effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini scored a goal and added two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

That's back-to-back three-point performances for Perlini, who potted a hat trick against the Coyotes on Monday. The third-year winger only has 12 goals and 19 points on the season, but half that production (seven goals and two assists) has come in the last six games. It's taken a while, but the 12th overall pick in the 2014 draft could finally be putting things together in the NHL.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Crushes ex-squad with hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini scored in all three periods Monday, helping his team to a 7-1 rout of Arizona.

Where did this come from? Perlini had all of three goals for the season at the start of the month and now has six goals in March alone. At this point, there's little to lose in playing him in daily leagues to see if he can keep catching lightning in a bottle.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Carries offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini scored two goals in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Kings.

With Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews having a rare off night, Perlini stepped up with some rare offense after spending the prior four games in the press box. The third-year winger only has seven goals and 12 points through 52 games, however, and hadn't lit the lamp since Jan. 1, so don't expect a repeat any time soon.

Blackhawks' Brendan Perlini: Stuck in press box Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perlini will be a healthy scratch for Wednesday's road contest against the Ducks, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

Perlini was originally thought to have an undisclosed injury, but that might have been covering up the fact that he was scratched. The 22-year-old hasn't produced this season, only racking up 10 points in 51 games. The Blackhawks will stick with John Hayden as their fourth line right wing.
