Mathieu Perreault C WPG 6 Days

Perreault will play left wing on the Jets' second line Sunday against Calgary, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Perreault had been serving as the Jets' third-line center, but didn't do much to catalyze that unit with only one point in four games. While that wouldn't normally warrant a promotion, the team's desire to get some better center play in their bottom six will indirectly benefit Perreault. He'll now get the opportunity to play alongside more offensively-talented mates in Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler, filling the spot Evander Kane manned before suffering a knee injury in the Jets' first game.

The Jets signed Mathieu Perreault on the first day of free agency.

He's expected to replace Olli Jokinen, who is still available as an unrestricted free agent. Interesting;y, Perreault and Jokinen both recorded 18 goals and 43 points this past season. However, Perreault did it in 69 games and he's much younger. "I can bring a lot of speed," said Perreault after signing a three-year, $9 million deal. "Winnipeg has always been a team about speed. It's a part of my game that I like to use. I'm a smart player, I can produce, I can play a little bit of power play." He could be a good fit in Winnipeg and there's a chance he'll play with Evander Kane.

Mathieu Perreault may not return to Anaheim as he is slated to become a restricted free agent on Tuesday.

The Ducks have Ryan Getzlaf and Rikard Rakell at center and have added Ryan Kesler and Nate Thompson in the last few days so that Perreault may be the odd man out in Anaheim. He had 18 goals and 43 points last season so he should be in demand by teams looking for a second line center.
