Perry notched an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Perry set up Cole Caufield's second-period tally. Through 46 appearances, Perry has 21 points, matching his output from 57 games last year. The 35-year-old Perry has added 58 shots on net, 52 hits and 39 PIM in a fourth-line role.
Perry had a power-play assist, one blocked shot and finished minus-4 over 16:16 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.
Perry set up Tyler Toffoli's second-period goal that closed the gap to 3-2. It was his fourth power-play apple and fifth point overall on the man-advantage unit. The 35-year-old forward could be asked to log more playing time in Monday's series finale pending the statuses of Paul Byron (lower body) and Jonathan Drouin (illness) who missed Saturday's game. Additionally, Tomas Tatar (lower body) joined them on the shelf during the game, putting his status into question for Monday.
Perry posted an assist in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Oilers.
Perry recorded the lone helper on Eric Staal's second-period tally. The 35-year-old Perry is up to 17 points, 48 shots on net, 45 hits and 30 PIM through 36 appearances this season. He's been a solid contributor on the Canadiens' fourth line, which gives him some appeal in deeper fantasy formats.
Perry scored twice on three shots in a 3-2 loss to Toronto on Wednesday.
Perry got the Canadiens on the board with a nifty goal 2:15 into the opening period, patiently tucking the puck through Toronto netminder Jack Campbell to tie the game at 1-1. His second tally brought Montreal to within 3-2 with 2:15 left in regulation, giving the 35-year-old his first two-goal performance in a regular-season game since March 2019. Perry has performed admirably in a bottom-six role this season, contributing seven goals and seven assists in 28 games with a plus-8 rating.
Perry had a goal on two shots with two hits and one blocked shot in Thursday's 4-1 win over Ottawa.
Perry planted himself in front of Filip Gustavsson and dug at the puck to put home his seventh marker of the season. It seems like all of Perry's goals have traveled one foot before crossing the goal line. He's become more comfortable with his new team over the course of the season, and the fourth-line winger has 10 points in his last 17 games.
Perry scored a power-play goal in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.
One reason general manager Marc Bergevin signed Perry during the leadup to the season was for this purpose, to be a net-front presence on the power play. Early in the first period, he camped out at the side of the goal, then swooped on the rebound of a Jeff Petry shot that caromed off the crossbar and slid the puck into a wide-open cage past Thatcher Demko. It was Perry's first goal and fourth point on the man advantage. The fourth-line winger has points in two straight games.
Perry had an assist, a team-high five shots and one blocked shot in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.
The Canadiens, with an empty net and extra attacker, were able to sneak away with a point when Perry deftly slid a pass to Tyler Toffoli for a goal that sent the game into overtime. The assist gives Perry 11 points in 22 games in what has largely been a fourth-line role.
Perry scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Flames.
Perry scored for the second straight game, but his was the only tally the Canadiens could put up against Jacob Markstrom on Thursday. The 35-year-old Perry has five goals, 10 points, 24 shots on net, 21 hits and a plus-7 rating through 19 contests. He's been effective in a fourth-line role, but that limited usage makes him a risky option in fantasy.
Perry scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.
Perry's tally at 2:09 of the second period was ultimately the game-winner. The 35-year-old winger has four goals, five assists, 22 shots on net, 20 hits and 16 PIM through 18 games, primarily in a bottom-six role.
Perry had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.
His goal was clutch -- he knotted the game at 3-3 at 18:36 of the third period with Jake Allen pulled for the extra attacker. Perry actually has increased his fantasy relevance in the last two weeks with five points (two goals, three assists) in his last six games and power-play points in his last two. Perry is a shell of his former self, but he's actually producing pretty well for a guy that gets 10-12 minutes of ice a night.
Perry logged an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Senators.
Perry stepped in for Artturi Lehkonen on the fourth line for the second straight game and logged points in each contest. With Montreal struggling to score goals, Perry could be part of the fourth line going forward, either filling for Lehkonen or Paul Byron, who cleared waivers earlier this season and can be bounced back and forth from the active roster to the taxi squad. Because Perry, who started the season on the taxi squad, has played 10 games, the Canadiens will need to expose him to waivers for a second time if they want to return him to the taxi squad.
Perry scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over Montreal.
Perry sent the game into overtime with a highlight-reel effort 14:35 into the third period. The 35-year-old absolutely walked Ottawa defenseman Erik Gudbranson and deked netminder Matt Murray for his second goal of the year, tying the game at 2-2. Perry was just activated from the taxi squad earlier in the day, but he certainly made a positive impact despite receiving just over 10 minutes of ice time in a fourth-line role.
Perry will be promoted from the taxi squad for Sunday's game versus the Senators, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Perry is slated to play on the fourth line. The 35-year-old has notched three points and 11 hits through nine games this year. He often plays on the power play as well, although it's unclear if he'll get such an opportunity Sunday.
Perry is on Montreal's taxi squad ahead of Saturday's game against Toronto, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Paul Byron will skate on the Canadiens' fourth line in place of Perry against the Maple Leafs. Perry, who's picked up three points through nine games this campaign, will likely continue to shuffle between the taxi squad and the active roster throughout the season.
Perry could be kept on Montreal's roster after the team placed Paul Byron on waivers Sunday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
If Byron clears waivers, the Canadiens can move him to the taxi squad and allow Perry, who started the season on the taxi squad, to take up a more permanent residence on the active roster. The 35-year-old Perry, who signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Canadiens during the offseason, has a goal and two assists in nine games and is plus-2 while averaging 13:03 of ice time. By contrast, Byron has a $3.4 million cap hit, so the swap would alleviate the salary-cap gymnastics the Habs have had to do thus far.
Perry was sent down to the taxi squad Sunday, per CBS Sports.
Perry has earned a bottom-six role through his play this season. He has three points in nine games and should be back on the active roster ahead of Saturday's game versus the Maple Leafs.
Perry logged two hits over 11:37 of ice time in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Toronto.
Perry was added to the active roster after Tomas Tatar was made a healthy scratch. Instead of taking Tatar's spot on the third line, like Perry had done when Joel Armia missed time due to a concussion, Artturi Lehkonen skated on Jesperi Kotkaniemi's line. Montreal doesn't play again until next Saturday's home game against Toronto, and it's unclear how long Tatar's banishment will last.
Perry was promoted from the taxi squad and will play Saturday versus the Maple Leafs, per CBS Sports.
Perry will work in a fourth-line role, while Tomas Tatar sits as a surprising healthy scratch. Perry has three points in eight appearances this year.
Perry was sent to the taxi squad and isn't expected to suit up for Thursday's tilt with Edmonton, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
The 35-year-old has suited up for the last eight games, including Wednesday's loss to Toronto, so Thursday could simply be a rest day. Perry has collected three points and nine hits during that span. He'll most likely return to the lineup for Saturday's rematch with the Maple Leafs.
Perry had two shots and two hits over 12:30 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.
The return of Joel Armia from a concussion prompted a slight tweak to the lines, moving Perry from right wing on the third line to the same spot on the fourth line and making Paul Byron a healthy inactive. The line shift resulted in less ice time for Perry but only at even strength. He was part of the top power-play unit (2:36) and is averaging 2:10 of ice time when opponents are short-handed.
