David Perron scored the only goal for the Oilers against the Blackhawks in a 7-1 loss Saturday night.

With just two goals and 10 points this season, Perron has been a disappointment all around. He was coming off a career year that saw him post 28 (team high) and 29, respectively. Justin Schultz and Jordan Eberle picked up the assists.

David Perron has yet to find the back of the net this season.

After leading the Oilers with 28 goals last season, the 26-year-old winger has not found the back of the net in eight games thus far. He does have five assists including one in each of his last two games. Perron had an off-season hip injury that forced him to start training much later than he normally would have started and that has contributed to his slow start. "It’s only eight games but it’s almost like training camp was eight years ago," Perron said. "It is definitely different when you don’t have the same type of training. It’s not an excuse. Even at 90 per cent, I should be able to make some good plays. I think I’m just going to push for my ice time. I‘m going to try to elevate my game to another level so that they have to get me back to where I was last year." If you can trade for the slumping Perron, do so, as his value is at a low.

David Perron openly admitted that his goal scoring drought has an impact on him.

"Can I be like every one else and say it doesn't affect me?" Perron said with a laugh. "It's not true. They're all lying when they say that; it does affect you." Perron still has four assists in seven games, so he hasn't been held off the scoresheet entirely. Goals tend to come in bunches, so while he has started the season slow, we aren't too worried about him yet.

David Perron (ribs) was fine for Edmonton's season opener on Thursday.

Perron missed a bit of time in the preseason due to the ailment. He registered an assist in Edmonton's 5-2 loss to Calgary.
Oct 10 - 1:48 AM

The Edmonton Oilers will be looking to avoid the same early season struggles that they endured last season.

Edmonton got off to a 4-15-2 start in 2013-14 and was never able to dig itself out of that hole. "We'd like to take a huge step, but sometimes you have to go slowly," said David Perron. "The biggest thing for us will be to stay in the race the whole year. The first 10 games are important. We don't want to fade away like we did last year where the last 50 games didn't really mean too much." The Oilers will play against Calgary on Thursday to open their season.
Oct 9 - 8:15 AM

David Perron won't be in Edmonton's lineup for Thursday's preseason match after he injured his ribs on Wednesday.

He was hit hard by Washington's Matt Smaby and required help getting into the locker room. Perron was back on the ice for his next shift, but he ended up leaving the game in the third period. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.
Oct 2 - 6:52 PM

David Perron meshed superbly with his new teammates in Edmonton last season and will look to build off of his 57 point and 90 penalty minute campaign.

The 26 year-old power forward has been fairly consistent throughout his seven year NHL career, and is a good bet to reward fantasy owners with points and penalty minutes once again. His plus/minus was a concern on an under-performing Oilers squad last year, but the team hopes new goaltenders, defensive acquisitions and rookies can help stop the bleeding on defense. Perron will have new linemates, as his center from last year Sam Ganger was traded, but that shouldn't keep the Sherbrooke, Que. native from contributing.
Aug 30 - 3:14 PM

David Perron won't participate in the World Hockey Championship because of a hip injury.

He apparently aggravated it in training. Perron notched 28 goals and 57 points in 78 games this past campaign with the Oilers. He'll use the off-season to recover.
May 5 - 5:06 PM

Apr 9 - 2:49 AM
