Perreault played with a high ankle sprain and ripped ligaments in his hand in the Jets' playoff series against the Ducks, 680 CJOB Sports reports.

It's certainly admirable Perreault was able to suit up while so banged up, especially considering he was able to register two assists in the three games he was able to play in in the series. He should be ready for the beginning of next season.

While it isn't confirmation that Perreault will be able to suit up for Game 2 of Winnipeg's playoff series against the Ducks, the fact that he was able to return to the ice on Friday is certainly a promising development.

Perreault was not on the ice for pregame warmups, indicating he will sit for Game 1 against the Ducks, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Perreault was considered a true game-time decision for the contest, but it appears he will need to skip it. Matt Halischuk will draw into the lineup in his place. Perreault's next chance to return comes Saturday against the Jets.

Coach Paul Maurice reiterated after Thursday's morning skate that Perreault (lower body) remains a game-time decision for the Jets' Game 1 matchup later in the evening with the Ducks.

Perreault didn't participate in line rushes with the Jets during the morning skate and didn't take the ice until after all the regulars had departed, so his chances of playing Wednesday wouldn't seem promising. Nevertheless, the Jets' medical staff will wait and see how Perreault progresses over the afternoon before making a call on his status. Matt Halischuk will enter the lineup if Perreault can't go.

Coach Paul Maurice said that Perreault (lower body) would be a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 1 matchup with the Ducks, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports.

Perreault skated on his own after Wednesday's practice concluded, which doesn't seem encouraging for his availability Thursday. However, if he's able to get back on the ice with the full team Thursday morning, Maurice could upgrade the forward's status heading into the evening. Perreault rebounded from a rough start to his first season with the Jets to finish with outputs of 18 goals and 23 assists, numbers very similar to what he supplied in 2013-14 with the Ducks.

Perreault (lower body) sat out Wednesday's practice, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

The Jets haven't made a ruling on Perreault's status for Thursday's postseason opener against the Ducks one way or the other, but his absence from practice on the eve of Game 1 doesn't bode well. Matt Halischuk has been skating on the Jets' third line in place of Perreault.
