Perreault (lower body) will suit up against the Flyers on Thursday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Perreault returns to the lineup following a 12-game absence due to his lower-body injury. In addition to his bottom-six role, the 29-year-old will retake his spot on the power play where he was averaging 3:35 of ice time prior to getting hurt. With Perreault healthy, Shawn Matthias will be relegated to the press box.

Perreault (lower body) will not be available for Tuesday's tilt versus the Coyotes, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

EDGE Analysis

Perreault continues to work his way back from injury, with the club going so far as to send Brendan Lemieux back to AHL Manitoba to clear space on the 23-man roster. If he continues to progress, a return to action against the Flyers on Thursday is certainly not out of the question for the center. When the former sixth-round pick is given the green light, he will likely bounce Matt Hendricks from the lineup.

Perreault (lower body) will not suit up during the Jets' current road trip, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Perreault has been able to join his teammates on the ice, including ditching the non-contact jersey as reported by Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg. Winnipeg's next home outing is Tuesday versus the Coyotes, which will be the center's next opportunity to slot back into the lineup. Once the 29-year-old is given the green light, Brendan Lemieux will probably find himself heading back to AHL Manitoba.

Perreault (lower body) joined the team for practice Wednesday wearing a non-contact sweater, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

EDGE Analysis

Perreault -- who has missed the Jets' previous nine outings -- appears to be trending in the right direction. While he remains on injured reserve and has yet to be cleared for contact, the center could be available for Winnipeg's upcoming back-to-back on Friday and Saturday against Vegas and Arizona respectively. Once cleared to return, Brendan Lemieux seems to be the most likely candidate to be demoted in order to clear space for Perreault on the 23-man roster.

Perreault (lower body) landed on injured reserve Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to getting hurt, Perreault was bogged down in a three-game pointless streak in which he tallied just four PIM, seven shots on goal and four hits. By placing him on IR, the earliest the center could return to action is Oct. 26 against the Penguins. In the meantime, the Jets have called up Kyle Connor who will likely replace Perreault on the power play.

Perreault was forced to make an early exit from Saturday's contest against Carolina due to a lower-body injury and will not return.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran forward was able to play over 13 minutes, while putting a shot on goal and picking up a minor penalty before suffering the injury. Expect Winnipeg to issue a further update on Perreault ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Columbus.

Perreault dished out a pair of assists in Saturday's loss to the Flames.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets have opened up the season with two ugly defeats, but that hasn't stopped Perreault from producing. The second-line winger has posted four consecutive seasons in the 40-point range and if off to another strong start this time around. He doesn't post elite totals and is very streaky, but at least you know what you're getting. Make sure you ride Perreault while he's hot because before you know it he could be amidst a 10-game scoring drought.

Perreault scored the final goal of Wednesday's 7-2 loss at the hands of the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

Perreault went five-hole against Frederik Andersen -- who no doubt will want that one back -- but it was too little, too late to overcome the hole the Jets put themselves in. Despite seeing action in 7:57 of ice time with the man advantage, the winger's marker came at even strength. The 29-year-old is on his way to a fifth consecutive 40-plus point campaign.

Perreault slipped the puck under the pad of netminder Alex Stalock in Monday's preseason matchup with Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Perreault netted 15 points with the man advantage last year and seems poised to rack up the power-play markers again. The center has registered four straight 40-plus point seasons and he's got a great chance for a fifth playing alongside Bryan Little and Nikolaj Ehlers.

Perreault scored a goal and handed out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 5-4 win over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

Perreault made beautiful music with Bryan Little -- who recorded four points of his own -- en route to an impressive (if ultimately meaningless) win. Up until the Jets-Devils game originally scheduled for March 14, Perreault was heading for a downright ugly season with just 28 points and a minus-12 rating through 53 contests. But since that game in New Jersey got snowed out, Perreault has absolutely exploded offensively, compiling a ridiculous 17 points (seven on the power play) in 11 games. He's now set a new career high in points with 45, which no one would have thought likely or perhaps even possible a month ago.
