David Perron LW PIT 1 Month

Perron notched a goal, a power-play assist and attempted five shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

Predictably, life has been much better for Perron since leaving Edmonton. He's tallied four goals and two assists over his last three games, putting him at more than a point-per-game pace during his time in Pittsburgh. He's worth a roster spot in just about any format.

Playing on the Pens' top unit, Perron potted his first power-play goal of the season Friday against the Isles.

The winger has four goals and five points in five games with Pittsburgh. Perron's also taken 24 shots in those five contests after totaling 74 shots in 38 games with Edmonton. He's fit well with Sidney Crosby both at even strength and on the power play.

Perron scored two goals and added an assist in Tuesday's 7-2 dismantling of the Wild.

He'd been held off the scoresheet in consecutive games after scoring in his Penguins debut, but Perron fired five shots on goal in each of those contests, offering promise that he made good on Tuesday. Over four games with Pittsburgh, he now owns four points and 20 shots on goal. Don't leave him out on your wire.

Perron scored a goal in his debut with Pittsburgh on Saturday against the Canadians.

He skated left wing on a line with Sidney Crosby and Steve Downie, registering a team-high six shots on goal while dishing out four hits. Perron enjoyed his first set-up from Crosby. "That was probably the best pass I've ever received," Perron told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Over two sticks. I had a good portion of the net to put it in."

Perron will play Saturday against the Canadiens, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The Penguins will begin to find out exactly what they sacrificed a 2015 first round draft pick for when Perron joins Sidney Crosby on the Penguins' first line Saturday as Pittsburgh takes on Montreal. Perron has tallied 19 points through 38 games this season with the dreadful Oilers, but will likely enjoy an uptick in production now that he's playing with the likes of Crosby.

Perron won't be available for the Penguins' game Friday against the Lightning, but is expected to play Saturday versus the Canadiens.

Acquired by the Penguins in a trade with the Oilers earlier in the day, Perron won't arrive in Pittsburgh until late in the evening Friday. He'll likely meet with the coaching staff Saturday morning before it's decided where he'll fit in with his new squad, but a role on either the top line next to Sidney Crosby or the second line next to Evgeni Malkin seems to be in the offing.

Perron was traded to the Penguins on Friday in exchange for Rob Klinkhammer and a 2015 first-round draft choice, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

For the second straight season, a long-term injury to Pascal Dupuis (blood clots) created a void on the club's top line next to Sidney Crosby, and it looks like Perron could potentially be tasked with filling that void. Perron has shown a nose for the net in the past, but had failed to deliver much production on a lowly Oilers squad this season, scoring just five goals and registering 19 points over 38 games. It's safe to say that his fantasy value will be on the rise with the move to Pittsburgh, where he'll be set up by superior playmakers and won't be susceptible to significant losses in plus/minus. He'll join the Penguins in Pittsburgh, but it's unclear at the moment if he'll be available for Friday's game against the Lightning.

Perron notched two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Flyers.

Perron finished the night with a neutral plus/minus, which qualifies as a positive given that he entered the night with a minus-17 rating. He's gone without a goal in 10 straight games and has tallied 19 points in 38 contests, putting him behind the eight ball in trying to match last season's total of 57 points. Considering the negative ratings he'll tend to take most nights on the league's worst team, it's tough to justify owning Perron in shallower or mid-sized formats.

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.
