David Perron LW EDM 2 Days
David Perron has been blazing while posting 12 points along with 34 shots on goal during the last nine games.
Perron was one of the big off-season acquisitions for the Oilers during the summer, and it seems to be paying off (at least from an offensive stand point) as he's recorded 24 points in 26 contests. He started the season with 12 points in his first 17 games (0.71 points per game), which was around the ballpark figure of his career numbers, but has since stepped it up to a whopping 1.33 during this recent "hot streak". One of the main reasons for the boost is due to a sharp spike in power play time. He's appeared in 58 percent of the Oilers' power play opportunities during this span, which is comparable to other forwards such as Logan Couture, Henrik Zetterberg, Shane Doan, Alex Steen, Eric Staal, Joe Thornton and Jaromir Jagr, so it's not surprising to see his point totals being where they are. The Oilers may be struggling to get wins on the board, but they're certainly providing enough offense to please poolies out there. Perron is just 56 percent Yahoo! owned

David Perron is on a scoring streak with four goals in his last three games.
The Oilers picked up Perron from the Blues in the off-season for Magnus Paajarvi and the results favor the Oilers big time in the early going as Perron has eight goals and 18 points in 20 games while Paajarvi has only one goal in seven games while being a healthy scratch for a much better St. Louis team. Perron has a career high of 50 points and it certainly is well within his reach this season.

David Perron has been a pleasant surprise for the Edmonton Oilers this season.
When the Oilers acquired Perron from the St. Louis Blues, it looked like they were getting a gritty forward and a nice secondary scorer. Instead, Perron has been one of the team leaders with seven goals and 17 points in 19 games. It helps that Perron is averaging a career-high 19:46 minutes per contest, including 3:03 minutes with the man advantage. It wouldn't be surprising if Perron slows down somewhat, but he should comfortably best his career-high of 50 points.
