David Perron LW PIT 26 Days

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.

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.
