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.
Perry has been promoted to Montreal's active roster on an emergency basis and is expected to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Perry is expected to skate on the Canadiens' third line and top power-play unit during Wednesday's contest. He's picked up three points through seven games this campaign.
Perry is expected to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Perry, who was added to the taxi squad earlier this week, is expected to suit up for an eighth consecutive game. He's been filling in for the injured Joel Armia (concussion), but the two took turns on the third line during Tuesday's practice. However, when it came time for the first-unit power player to skate, it was Perry on the ice. That is a sign that Armia, who is nearing a return, will not be active Wednesday.
Perry was designated for the taxi squad Sunday, CBS Sports reports.
Perry likely will be called up before Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs. The 35-year-old winger has registered three points through the first seven games, and he adds a valued veteran presence to the rising Canadiens.
Perry was promoted from the taxi squad Friday, CBS Sports reports.
Perry will play in Saturday's road game against the Senators. The veteran forward has enjoyed modest success so far, recording three points through six games.
Perry has been assigned to Montreal's taxi squad, per CBS.
Perry has appeared in six straight games for the Canadiens, picking up a goal and two assists over that span, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him back on the active roster ahead of Saturday's game against the Senators.
Perry posted an assist, two shots on goal and a pair of hits in Monday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.
Perry has taken over a third-line role with Joel Armia sidelined by a concussion. It's been no problem for the 35-year-old Perry, who has a goal and two assists in four games since entering the lineup. The truculent winger has added three hits, seven shots and four PIM. Expect Perry to stay in the lineup until Armia is ready to return, although head coach Claude Julien could be inclined to find room for Perry if he keeps performing well.
Perry had a power-play assist and a blocked shot over 12:34 of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 win over Calgary.
Perry was called up from the taxi squad to skate right wing on the third line, replacing the injured Joel Armia (concussion) for a second straight game. Armia is out indefinitely, and Perry is in line to fill the absence. In two games, Perry has a goal and an assist.
The Canadiens reassigned Perry to their taxi squad Tuesday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
Perry skated on Montreal's third line during Tuesday's morning skate, so this may just be a temporary move. The 35-year-old winger made his Habs debut Saturday against Vancouver, scoring a goal while firing four shots on net in 15:19 of ice time.
Perry had a goal on four shots with a blocked shot and two-minute minor penalty over 15:19 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.
Perry made his Montreal debut, filling in for the injured Joel Armia (concussion), and he made an immediate impact. He led a two-on-one chance and tried to slip a pass to Jesperi Kotkaniemi, but the puck was deflected by a defenseman and caromed through Braden Holtby's pads. The Kotkaniemi line was the Canadiens' hottest of the three-game series, netting eight of 17 goals. The Canadiens expect Armia to be out indefinitely, so Perry could rejoin Kotkaniemi and Tyler Toffoli when the Habs play their home opener Thursday against Calgary.
