Oilers' Perron Pots Game-Winner Sunday

News: David Perron extended his point streak to four games Sunday, scoring the game-winning goal in a win over the Sharks.
Analysis: It was only the fourth goal of the season for David 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.

Oilers' Perron: Three-Game Point Streak

News: David Perron gathered an assist in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: David 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

News: David Perron could be on his way out of Edmonton, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Rumors have been swirling all day that the Oilers are looking to trade David 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 Play On Top Line For Edmonton

News: David Perron will take the place of the injured Benoit Pouliot (foot) on the top line for Edmonton, according to the Oilers' official site.
Analysis: Pouliot is expected to miss at least a month's worth of action, so David 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.

Oilers' Perron Finally Gets Goal

News: David Perron scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: David 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 Helps Out On Two As Oilers Fall

News: David Perron assisted on two goals in a shootout loss to the Canucks on Saturday.
Analysis: David 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 him, the demotion might not hinder his productivity that dramatically.

Oilers' Perron Good To Go For Opener

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

Oilers' Perron Not Seriously Hurt

News: David Perron (ribs) should be ready to play once the regular season begins, according to the Oilers web site.
Analysis: Coach Dallas Eakins insinuated Thursday that David 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.

Oilers Perron' Exits With Rib Injury

News: David Perron left Wednesday's exhibition name with a rib injury, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: David Perron suffered the injury on a big from Arizona's Matt Smaby. He was able to return briefly before leaving the game for good. Further details of his injury were not available, but expect an update on Perron's status as more details are released.

Perron To Open Camp On The Right Side For Edmonton

News: David Perron will open up training camp playing right wing, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: David Perron is slated to play on a line with Benoit Pouliot and rookie Leon Draisaitl. This line could be broken up however if Draisaitl doesn't make the team out of camp. The Oilers don't have another playmaking center on the roster so Perron's offensive numbers could take a dip this season.

Oilers' Perron Still Dealing With Hip Injury

News: David Perron still isn't fully recovered from the hip injury he suffered last season, according to the Oilers web site.
Analysis: David Perron admitted Monday that he has had to deal with the injury all summer and it has changed how he would normally prepare for a season. He hasn't been able to do as much lower body work as he would like but still expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

Hip Injury Knocks Oilers' Perron Out Worlds

News: David Perron is dealing with a hip injury and will not be able to play in the 2014 World Hockey Championship.
Analysis: Although the hip injury will keep David Perron out of the international competition, it's not believed to be serious enough of an issue to prevent him from being available for the start of training camp. The 25-year-old was one of the few bright spots during a dismal campaign for the Oilers, accumulating 28 goals and 29 assists in 78 games.

Oilers' Perron Tallies Goal In Loss

News: David Perron scored the lone Oilers goal in their loss to the Avalanche on Tuesday.
Analysis: David Perron's bank shot off the skate of Avs defenseman Nick Holden got past goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere to give the forward his team-leading 28th goal. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a productive first season in Edmonton, setting career-bests in nearly every offensive category.

Perron Gets Oilers' Lone Tally In Home Loss

News: David Perron pocketed his 23rd goal of the season in Saturday night's 2-1 loss to Calgary.
Analysis: Every time he tallies these days, he sets a new career high; his previous mark was 21 goals two seasons ago. David Perron has picked up his offense noticeably since being acquired in the offseason from St. Louis; if you drafted him expecting about 45 points from him, you're going to get a nice dividend this season.

Perron Tallies Assist In Oilers' Win

News: David Perron logged an assist for the second straight game in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: That's three assists in his last two games. For the season, David Perron has 22 goals and 20 assists in 54 contests.

Oilers' Perron Tallies Two Assists

News: David Perron picked up two helpers against the Sabres on Monday.
Analysis: David Perron now has 22 goals and 19 assists in 54 games. He's already broken his career high in goals, and he's on pace to break his career-high point total as well. Of course, part of that is because Perron has stayed healthy thus far. He hasn't played more than 57 games since the 2009-10 season.

Oilers' Perron Notches Hat Trick

News: David Perron scored three goals and was a plus-3 against the Canucks on Monday.
Analysis: With these three goals, David Perron crosses the 20 goal barrier, as he now has 22 on the season.

Oilers' Perron Scores 19th In Loss Friday

News: David Perron scored his 19th goal of the season during the Oilers' 4-3 loss to Phoenix on Friday.
Analysis: Though David Perron now has two goals in his last three games, January has been a terrible month for the 25-year-old winger who has just those goals and two assists over 11 games this month. He could be heating up again right now, so you'll want to make sure you have him active in your lineup right now.

Perron Sends Game To OT, But Oilers Fall

News: David Perron's tallied his 18th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets.
Analysis: David Perron's game-tying score came with just two minutes left in the third period, at least allowing the Oilers to salvage a point in the defeat. His 18 goals, 17 assists and minus-7 rating on the season have made him a better fantasy asset than several of the team's more-heralded forwards.

Perron Scores 16th, But Oilers Fall At Home

News: David Perron scored his team-leading 16th goal of the season Saturday in the Oilers' shootout loss to Philadelphia. He finished the night plus-2 and was whistled for two penalty minutes.
Analysis: Of Edmonton's four elite young scorers (Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and David Perron), Perron offers the best overall fantasy value in standard formats, considering his scoring, penalty minutes, and relatively benign plus/minus rating.

Oilers' Perron Pots Two Goals In Loss

News: David Perron connected on two goals on six shot attempts Thursday vs. the Bruins.
Analysis: David Perron continues to clip along with 27 points in 29 games and remains one of the few regular skaters for the Oilers with a neutral or better plus/minus rating. He's been something of a gem in what has otherwise been a very disappointing season for the Oilers.

Perron Tallies Two Points For Oilers

News: David Perron scored a goal, assisted on another, went plus-2 and racked up four penalty minutes in Thursday's blowout win over Colorado.
Analysis: That's four straight games with a point for David Perron -- in that time, he's totaled four goals, two assists, a plus-3 rating and eight penalty minutes. The former Blue has now pulled his season rating even, and with 24 points in 26 games on top of that, he's been terrifically rewarding for fantasy owners.

Explosive Game For Blues' Perron

News: David Perron had a monster game Tuesday against Columbus, scoring two goals and assisting on two more in a 7-0 romp.
Analysis: Well, that's more like it. David Perron's been a pretty consistent offensive contributor when healthy this year, as he hasn't gone more than two games in a row without a point, but this was only his third multi-point contest of the season. He's shooting plentifully and playing with an edge, so as long as he's healthy, Perron is a solid fantasy option, particularly in leagues that reward shots, PIM and hits.

Perron Books Winner For Oilers

News: David Perron scored midway through the third frame of a comeback win over Calgary on Saturday night, good for his first game-winning goal of the season.
Analysis: Despite the happy news, there's reason for concern; David Perron's shooting percentage this year (7.6 percent) is far below his career norm of about 13 percent. He's firing away more often, so he might still post a decent number of tallies. But pay attention to how that shooting percentage fluctuates, as it's going to constrain his fantasy value unless it improves.

Oilers Bring Back Perron From IR

News: David Perron (neck) was activated from injured reserve in advance of Saturday's game.
Analysis: The winger scored a second-period power-play goal in his return, showing the deft scoring touch he had demonstrated prior to landing on IR. The Oilers figure to use David Perron on the second-line role with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, which should continue to be rather fruitful.
