Alexander Perezhogin continues to shine in the KHL this season.
Saturday he scored two goals and assisted on another in Avangard Omsk's 5-2 win over Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. It's been six years since Perezhogin played in the NHL and we doubt he will be coming back anytime soon. Blue Jacket defenseman Nikita Nikitin assisted on one of Omsk's goals.

Former Montreal Canadien Alexander Perezhogin scored a goal in Avangard Omsk's 4-1 win over Khabarousk in KHL action Saturday.

The 29-year-old winger didn't have much of an NHL career as his highest point total was 19 in 2005-06, although he did register 50 points in the AHL two seasons earlier. A few notable teammates of Perezhogin you may recognize are Columbus defenseman Nikita Nikitin, former Los Angeles winger Alexander Frolov and former Tampa backup netminder Karri Ramo.

The Montreal Canadiens sent a qualifying offer to Alexander Perezhogin on Tuesday.

This is interesting because Perezhogin signed with a Russian team in the off-season. However, by offering a qualifying deal, the Habs retain the rights to the winger. This means that they can use his rights in any potential deals, should the acquiring team believe they can bring the disgrunted Russian back to the NHL.

Alexander Perezhogin inked a deal with Salavat Yulayev Ufa in the Russian Super League, according to the Montreal Gazette.

Don Meehan, Perezhogin's agent, said that the contract will net his client $1.7 million U.S., which is a significant pay increase from the $627,000 he made last season playing for the Canadiens. "That works out to about $3.4 million gross in the NHL and it's unlikely the Montreal Canadiens could match that," said Meehan.

A report out of Russia seems to indicate that Alexander Perezhogin is not happy in Montreal.

The report goes on to say that the Habs' winger has signed a contract to play for Omsk of the Russian Super League in 2007-08. Stay tuned for further details.

Alexander Perezhogin returned to action against Toronto Saturday night.

He had been sidelined with a conussion since February 27th. As the Canadiens were eliminated from playoff contention, the young winger will have plenty of time to rest up for next season.

Alexander Perezhogin was hit in head by an errant puck at practice on Thursday which left him concussed.

It was thought that Perezhogin had a minor ear/head injury, but it has since been diagnosed as a concussion. Reserve the youngster should he be on your roster. He will likely be out for the next few games at least.

Alexander Perezhogin was hit in the ear by a deflected puck in practice yesterday, and may miss tonight's game against the Sabres.

Perezhogin was reportedly 'shaky' after the incidident and will be a game time decision.

Alexander Perezhogin has been a healthy scratch the past two games.

The Russian winger has also been a healthy scratch three times in the past nine games. With only five goals and 13 points this season, he is not the offensive player the Canadiens had hoped for. He should not be on your fantasy roster.

Alexander Perezhogin was a healthy scratch on Thursday for the first time this season.

It seems to be boom or bust for Perezhogin. He has been auditioning for the role of centering the second line, which features Sergei Samsonov and Alexei Kovalev. However, coach Guy Carbonneau was not pleased with the youngster's performance. This is more of a motivational tactic, and we do not believe Perezhogin will be out for long.

Alexander Perezhogin is among the league leaders in plus/minus this season with a plus-13.

Along with his linemates, Radek Bonk (plus-9) and Mike Johnson (plus-9)they are the only line on the Canadiens with a plus rating. The so-called third Montreal line has really picked up its play this season and is playing like a second or first line. They collectively have fifteen goals. Comparitively, Montreal's first line, consisting of Saku Koivu, Michael Ryder, Guillaume Latendresse and Christopher Higgins before he was injured, has twenty-eight goals, but they are minus-10. The Canadiens second line of Sergei Samsonov, Tomas Plekanec, and Alex Kovalev only have fourteen goals and they are a combined minus-18.

Alexander Perezhogin has been promoted to the second line as coach Guy Carbonneau experiments with an all Russian unit.

Alexei Kovalev gets the shift to center, with Sergei Samsonov manning the left side. This trio will play together against the Senators on Tuesday. The three Russians have an incredible skill set, so it will be interesting to see the results of this experiment. Perezhogin is worth picking up as a flier for the simple reason that he will be playing alongside Kovalev and Samsonov.

Alexander Perezhogin scored the overtime winner as Montreal edged Tampa Bay 4-3 on Tuesday.

Mathieu Dandenault, Saku Koivu and Andrei Kastsitsyn also had markers for Montreal, while Eric Perrin, Filip Kuba and Ryan Craig scored in a losing cause for the Bolts. Despite his heroics tonight, the 23-year-old is still far enough down the Canadiens' depth chart, that he will not receive enough meaningful ice-time to produce fantasy worthy numbers.
Tue, Sep 26, 2006 10:24:00 PM

Canadiens re-signed Alexander Perezhogin to a one-year/$627,000 contract.

The 22-year-old Russian forward played 67 games in his first season with the Canadiens last year, scoring nine goals and 19 points. With the additions of Sergei Samsonov and Mike Johnson, Perezhogin will likely not play on one of Montreal's top lines, therefore leaving him with little to no fantasy value in 2006/07.
