Description: Penguins left wing David Perron continued his hot start in Pittsburgh, scoring a goal and an assist in the victory on Tuesday.
Insight: Perron has six goals and three assists in nine games with Pittsburgh. Before the trade, Perron had five goals in 38 games with Edmonton. It's safe to say he is fitting in nicely with the Penguins.
 
1/13/2015 9:41:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing David Perron easily had his best game in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Insight: Perron scored two goals and recorded an assist while skating on the top line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz verus the Wild. He seems to be settling in nicely with his new team. Perron has four points in four games with Pittsburgh.
 
1/2/2015 2:47:00 PM
Description: Oilers left wing David Perron has been traded to Pittsburgh.
Insight: Perron has five goals and 14 assis this season. If rumors are true that he'll play alongside Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, he could see a boost in his production.
 
12/10/2014 9:51:00 AM
Description: Oilers left wing David Perron scored on Tuesday.
Insight: Perron scored the second Oilers goal in a five minute span during the first period. Edmonton at that point tied the game, 2-2, but gave up three unanswered goals to lost, 5-2. Perron has five goals and 10 assists in 28 games this season but supports an awful minus-13 rating.
 
10/12/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Edmonton left wing David Perron had two assists in Saturday's loss to Vancouver.
Insight: After coming off a career-high 57-pont season. Perron now has three points this season. He should continue to be a steady, under-the-radar player, moving forward.
 
9/22/2014 2:39:00 PM
Description: Edmonton left wing David Perron came close to a 30-30 season, finishing with 28 goals and 29 assists.
Insight: Perron would be a lot more valuable if he were playing on the top line, but he's more likely to be a second line winger with Benoit Pouliot and a question mark. It's the question mark that is the cause for his TSN projections dropping to 20 goals and 26 assists.
 
3/26/2014 9:52:00 AM
Description: Edmonton left wing David Perron has contributed four goals and five assists in March.
Insight: Perron's goal Tuesday against the Sharks gave him 51 points, a career high. He had 50 with the Blues back in 2008-09.
 
12/4/2013 9:36:00 AM
Description: David Perron scored both Edmonton goals Tuesday in a 6-2 loss to Phoenix.
Insight: Perron's first season in Edmonton has been a success. In 25 games, he's already generated 22 points in a little over 19 and a half minutes per game. As long as he stays healthy, Perron should continue to be a productive fantasy player.
 
11/20/2013 9:54:00 AM
Description: Edmonton left wing David Perron had a monster game Tuesday against Columbus.
Insight: He netted two goals while also contributing two assists. Nearly half of Perron's goals this season (three out of seven) have come on the power play. He's already on pace for 29 goals, which would be a career-high.
 
11/9/2013 3:52:00 PM

Insight: Perron was on injured reserve due to a neck injury. He has 10 points in 14 games for Edmonton.
 
11/7/2013 5:38:00 PM

12/3/2011 12:16:00 AM
Description: David Perron is expected to return to the Blues' lineup on Saturday against Chicago after missing the past 13 months with a concussion. NHL.com
Insight: Perron appeared to be a scorer on the rise until he took a headshot from Joe Thornton last season. Fantasy owners may want to wait and see how he responds, although Sidney Crosby missed a similar length of time and was able to score four points in his first game back.
 
9/25/2011 4:36:00 PM
Description: David Perron is set to rejoin the St. Louis Blues on Monday after being sidelined for nearly a year with a concussion. TSN
Insight: Don't assume that Perron will be ready to start the season. However, the fact that he is rejoining the team should mean that he will slowly work himself toward game action and return at some point this season.
 
8/3/2011 6:37:00 PM
Description: David Perron is not expected to be ready for the start of the season, since he is still dealing with post-concussion symptoms. TSN
Insight: Perron has not played since November 4, when he suffered a blindside hit to the head from Joe Thornton. He would have been a top-6 forward to start the season, meaning that newly acquired veteran forwards Jason Arnott and Jamie Langenbrunner could receive additional icetime. Hopefully Perron is able to return at some point during the 2011-12 season.
 
3/11/2011 7:36:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Blues have shut down David Perron for the season because of a concussion. TSN
