Jets' Perreault Could Be Out For Season

News: Coach Paul Maurice said Wednesday that Mathieu Perreault has been ruled out indefinitely with a lower-body injury, with the Jets fearing he could be lost for the season, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The Jets have moved Perreault to injured reserve, according to Sara Orlesky of TSN.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault's long-term absence will create a major hole on the Jets' second line, as the winger had rebounded from a woeful start to the season to deliver 30 points (16 goals, 14 assists) over his last 32 games. Carl Klingberg was recalled from AHL St. John's to take Perreault's roster spot, but it's more likely that Dustin Byfuglien will shuffle back from defense to forward to claim Perreault's second-line gig. The Jets will see how Perreault progresses over the next few weeks before offering a firmer timetable for his return, but those in season-long leagues are probably best served cutting bait with him in favor of a healthier option.

Jets' Perreault Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: Mathieu Perreault left Monday's game against the Oilers with a lower-body injury, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: With Drew Stafford (upper body) also exiting the contest, Winnipeg was forced to play most of the third period with just 10 forwards. Speaking after the game, Jets coach Paul Maurice did not have an update on either player's status, but Mathieu Perreault was spotted leaving the arena with a walking boot. Winnipeg's next game is scheduled for Thursday in Washington.

Jets' Perreault On Hot Streak

News: Mathieu Perreault has been on fire of late, registering at least one point in each of Winnipeg's last three games while tallying five points in total over that span.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault now has 18 goals and 18 assists on the season, and is on pace to post career bests in both of those statistical categories. He's also notched 11 power-play points this season, and has now cemented a role on the Jets' top power-play unit. Admittedly, his surge in production has coincided with Dustin Byfuglien joining the Jets' second offensive line with Perreault and Mark Scheifele during Winnipeg's last four games. With the departure of Zach Bogosian in Tuesday's blockbuster deal with the Sabres, Byfuglien will now return to the blue line. However, it's possible that new addition Drew Stafford will take Byfuglien's place on Winnipeg's second line. Stafford is a talented veteran winger who shouldn't have any trouble slotting in and developing chemistry with Scheifele and Perreault in a timely manner.

Jets' Perreault Tallies Three Points In Win

News: Mathieu Perreault scored his 18th goal of the season and added two assists in Sunday's win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Skating on a line with Dustin Byfuglien and Mark Scheifele, the trio combined for three goals and eight points in the win. While Mathieu Perreault had been held off the scoresheet in five of his last seven outings, he now has points in back-to-back games and should build off his offensive outburst Sunday. The 27-year-old, who plays on the top power-play unit, will play a key role down the stretch as the Jets aim for the postseason.

Perreault Drives Jets' Offense In Loss

News: Mathieu Perreault was the only man to penetrate the Flyers' Steve Mason on Thursday, accounting for both Winnipeg goals in a 5-2 loss.
Analysis: He went through a brief cooling period after his four-goal game, but Mathieu Perreault showed that big outings like that are no fluke. Assuming his health holds up, he should blow by last year's career-high 43 points, and the best could be yet to come.

Jets' Perreault Back In Lineup

News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) will play Tuesday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Thanks to the NHL All-Star break, Mathieu Perreault will end up only missing two games after taking a cross-check to his upper-body area back on Jan. 16. Prior to suffering the injury, Perreault had produced 23 points in 21 games.

Jets' Perreault Practices

News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) practiced Monday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Coach Paul Maurice indicated that Mathieu Perreault looked fine at practice Monday, but the forward's status for Tuesday's gamed against the Penguins has yet to be confirmed at this stage.

Jets' Perreault (Upper Body) Moved To IR

News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault wouldn't have been cleared to play until after the All-Star break anyway, so the IR move doesn't really have any bearing in his eventual return timetable. Coach Paul Maurice said Tuesday that he believes Perreault isn't looking at a long-term absence, but he'll have to resume skating in the next few days to have a shot at suiting up for the Jets' first game out of the break.

Jets Rule Perreault (Upper Body) Out Through Break

News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) will not suit up in Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets, according to Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault was unable to skate during Tuesday's practice, making it an easy call for coach Paul Maurice to keep him out through the All-Star break. Maurice acknowledged that the club doesn't believe a long-term absence is in store for Perreault, as there's a chance he could be back in the fold for the Jets' first game after the break.

Jets' Perreault Sidelined On Sunday

News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) won't play Sunday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Moreover, coach Paul Maurice indicated Sunday that he doesn't expect Mathieu Perreault to suit up for Wednesday's game against Columbus either, though the team is hopeful that the center -- who has 29 points in 45 games -- will be able to play after the upcoming NHL All-Star break.

Jets' Perreault (Upper Body) To Miss 'Some Games'

News: Mathieu Perreault appears to have avoided any fractures after taking a cross-check to the upper-body area in Friday's win over the Blackhawks, but he's still likely to miss "some games," Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: The Jets refused to comment on Lavoie's report and said that an official update on Mathieu Perreault's status will be provided Sunday. With 23 points over his past 21 games, Perreault has blossomed into an asset across nearly every fantasy format, and the Jets can only hope their second-liner avoided a significant injury. If there's any silver lining, it might be that the upcoming All-Star break will give Perreault some more time to try to recuperate from the injury.

Jets' Perreault Suffers Upper Body Injury

News: Coach Paul Maurice indicated that Mathieu Perreault -- who left Friday's game with an upper-body injury -- will be "checked out" on Saturday, the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault -- who has 15 goals and 14 assists in 45 games this season -- absorbed a Daniel Carcillo cross-check to his arm late in the second period of Friday's game and his status for Sunday's contest against the Coyotes is cloudy as a result.

Jets' Perreault Exits Friday's Game

News: Mathieu Perreault was forced out of Friday's game against Chicago with an unspecified injury.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault was helped off the ice by the Jets training staff late in the second period after being cross-checked by Chicago's Dan Carcillo. For now, consider Perreault day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game against the Coyotes.

Jets' Perreault Explodes With Four-Goal Night

News: Mathieu Perreault accounted for half of Winnipeg's goals Tuesday in an 8-2 rout of the Panthers. He scored the Jets' first two goals in the first period, then put the game out of reach with the fifth and sixth, finishing with a plus-4 on the evening.
Analysis: Well, that was unexpected. Mathieu Perreault had been clipping along nicely of late, rolling up points with terrific consistency, but he hasn't had a lot of these big blowup games. What he does have, however, is a spectacular total of 22 points over 19 games in the months of December and January. We've seen him fade out of similar hot streaks before, but the frequency with which he's been finding the scoresheet has been nothing short of remarkable.

Jets' Perreault Records Two Points In Win

News: Mathieu Perreault scored his 11th goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault is rolling right now, recording 17 points (nine goals) in his last 17 games. Skating on the Jets' second line and top power-play unit, the 27-year-old has 83 shots on goal and a fantasy relevant 23 PIM this season. Considering he's only been held off the scoresheet twice in his last 15 outings, Perreault should be owned in almost all deep leagues right now. He's on track for a 20-goal season and should keep producing in a top-six role.

Jets' Perreault Not Slowing Down

News: Mathieu Perreault recorded a goal on his five shot attempts in Thursday's loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: This guy has looked like a completely different player since December. After providing just two goals and six points over the first two months of the season, Mathieu Perreault has bagged eight goals and seven assists over his last 16 games. Scoop him off the wire if he's still out there.

Jets' Perreault Not Slowing Down

News: Mathieu Perreault picked up a power-play assist and two PIM, attempted four shots, and doled out three hits in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The multi-category production was nice for those in specialty formats, but it's Mathieu Perreault's ongoing point production that's perhaps most notable. He's been a force offensively since the start of December, tallying seven goals and seven assists in 14 games.

Perreault Scores Two More For Jets

News: Mathieu Perreault potted goals at even strength and on the power play Tuesday in a 5-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: That's three straight games with a goal now and seven straight with a point for Mathieu Perreault, who's simply been on fire. He has 11 points in his last 10 games after managing just six in his first 24. He's had these streaks before, only to fade, so we'll be monitoring his progress to see if he can keep it up.

Jets' Perreault Extends Point Streak Sunday

News: Mathieu Perreault extended his point streak to seven games Sunday, scoring his sixth goal of the season in a loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: The second-liner has now scored in back-to-back games and is up to 15 points in 33 games on the season. While he won't produce spectacular offensive totals, Mathieu Perreault should come close to duplicating the success of the career-high 18-goal, 43-point season he posted in 2013-14. The 26-year-old is a decent secondary scorer who can be counted on in deeper formats.

Jets' Perreault Pockets Game-Winner, Assist Weds.

News: Mathieu Perreault picked up an assist and tallied the game-winning goal in overtime Wednesday against the Jets.
Analysis: The goal, Mathieu Perreault's third of the season, came 17 seconds into the extra period and was his only shot attempt of the evening. The primary credit for the game-winner probably goes to Jacob Trouba, whose booming shot Perreault nicked with his stick before it found net. Perreault has eight points and a minus-3 rating over 25 games this season.

Jets' Perreault Draws Back In

News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) appears set to play Friday against the Bruins, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault was a full participant in Thursday's practice and took part in line rushes at Friday's morning skate, so it appears safe to say that he'll draw back in for the Jets. The forward is seeing about two minutes more of ice time than he enjoyed with the Ducks last season, but a decline in quality of linemates has resulted in a significant drop in his per-game point production.

News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) participated in Thursday's practice, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault, who missed Wednesday's game with the injury, said he felt well after taking the ice for practice, seemingly without any limitations. While he would seem on track to return to action Friday versus the Bruins, he'll see how his body feels during the morning skate before a decision on his status is made.

Jets' Perreault Out With Injury Wednesday

News: Mathieu Perreault will miss Wednesday's game against the Sabres with an upper-body injury, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault was limited to just 9:54 of ice time in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jackets after failing to return for the third period following a hit from Nick Foligno. The Jets are just considering him day-to-day for now, and coach Paul Maurice indicated he was hopeful Perreault would be back in the lineup Friday versus the Bruins.

Jets' Perreault Notches Two Points In Loss

News: Mathieu Perreault assisted on the Jets' first goal and scored a go-ahead goal in the second period of Thursday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Unfortunately for Mathieu Perreault and the Jets, they couldn't hold onto the 3-2 lead that his goal delivered. It's just his second tally of the year, but they've both come in the last two games. Could be he's finally finding his stride.

Jets' Perreault Nets First Goal

News: Mathieu Perreault scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Mathieu Perreault was honored with the game's first star for his second-period tally, but it can't mask what has been a disappointing season for the forward. Despite seeing an increase of over two minutes of ice time with the Jets from a season earlier with the Ducks, Perreault has notched only four points in 20 games to go along with a minus-5 rating.
