David Perron LW EDM 8 Days

Perron ended a four-game offensive drought with a pair of assists in Thursday's loss to San Jose.

It's been a streaky season for Perron, and too many of those streaks have been the wrong kind, but perhaps Thursday's sharp performance will get him heating up again.

Perron extended his point streak to four games Sunday, scoring the game-winning goal in a win over the Sharks.

It was only the fourth goal of the season for Perron, who is on pace to barely surpass the 10-goal mark. The third-liner has 14 points in 27 games this season, to go with a minus-12 rating. While this recent streak seems promising, Perron only has four shots on goal in that span and is averaging just 16:44 of ice time. If he gets bumped up into a top-six role or gets dealt to a better team, Perron's fantasy value will increase.

Perron gathered an assist in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.

Perron has been the subject of trade rumors recently, and if there's any truth to that, he's at least helped his value over the last several days. He's riding a modest three-game point streak, but his overall body of work this season (13 points in 26 games) has made him a disappointment for both the Oilers and fantasy owners alike.

Perron could be on his way out of Edmonton, according to the Edmonton Journal.

Rumors have been swirling all day that the Oilers are looking to trade Perron for a center and apparently the Blue Jackets are interested in Perron for Artem Anisimov. The Oilers are having another season implosion and the once proud franchise realizes that something has to be done. They have gone through coaches and general managers in the past so perhaps now they believe a trade will get the team's attention. While they may be right, it's not like the addition of Anisimov is going to change their fortunes.

Perron will take the place of the injured Benoit Pouliot (foot) on the top line for Edmonton, according to the Oilers web site.

Pouliot is expected to miss at least a month's worth of action so Perron will be the beneficiary and get bumped up to play with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. Perron has been a bit of a disappointment this season after being very productive last year with Edmonton. Perhaps playing with more talented linemates will ignite his season.

Perron scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Canucks.

Perron has had a rough go of things while seeing most of his time on the third line this season, compiling six points and a minus-7 rating over 11 games. He's noticed a dropoff in ice time of about three and a half minutes compared to 2013-14, but that could soon change for Perron. Taylor Hall left Saturday's game with a lower-body injury that could prove to be a long-term concern, perhaps creating an opening for Perron to slide into a top-six role.

Perron assisted on two goals in the Oilers' shootout loss to the Canucks on Saturday.

Perron is off to a good start after last season's career-high 59-point showing, as he's now picked up three helpers in Edmonton's first two games. The additions of Benoit Pouliot and Leon Draisaitl to top-six roles has pushed Perron to the third line, but with capable snipers in Teddy Purcell and Mark Arcobello playing alongside of him, the demotion might not hinder his productivity that dramatically.

Perron (ribs) is set to play in Thursday's season opener against the Flames, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Perron suffered a rib injury at the tail end of the preseason, but he's been able to practice without much complications the last few days. The 26-year-old will enter the 2014-15 campaign looking to build off of the career-high 57 points he tallied a season ago.

Perron (ribs) should be ready to play once the regular season begins, according to the Oilers web site.

Coach Dallas Eakins insinuated Thursday that Perron probably would've finished the game Wednesday had this been a game that counted but since it wasn't and Perron has nothing to prove, the team decided to play it safe and remove him.

Perron left Wednesday's exhibition name with a rib injury, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.

Perron suffered the injury on a big from Anaheim's Matt Smaby. Further details of his injury were not available, but expect an update on Perron's status as more details are released.
