Perron will open up training camp playing right wing, according to the Edmonton Journal.

Perron is slated to play on a line with Benoit Pouliot and rookie Leon Draisaitl. This line could be broken up however if Draisaitl doesn't make the team out of camp. The Oilers don't have another playmaking center on the roster so Perron's offensive numbers could take a dip this season.

For the first time since he was traded by the Blues to the Edmonton Oilers, David Perron will be back in St. Louis tonight.

The trade probably ranks as the best in the brief career of Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish. Perron has been everything the Oilers wanted and desperately needed when they sent Magnus Paajarvi and a second-round pick (2014) to the Blues. He's a fiery competitor who not only leads Edmonton's top six forwards in grit and gamesmanship, but in a lineup that includes Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov, he's first in goals, with a career-high 24. "It would be nice to be part of a run like (St. Louis's) but it's the business of the league," he said. "We're in the NHL getting paid, maybe more money than we should, to be doing something we love. So I'm going to take every single day like I did with the Blues, try to have fun, get better and try to bring some success here so we can match them in a couple of years. The way we've played lately we've shown we're not that far off."
