The Montreal Canadiens are reportedly interested in signing David Perron.
Perron is from nearby Sherbrooke, Quebec and he's set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. Per Sportsnet, Perron is more than willing to play in his home province. The Canadiens are in the market for at least one top-six forward and Perron certainly gives them that. The 28-year-old scored just 12 goals and 36 points in 71 games in 2015-16, but he really turned it on after being traded from the Penguins to the Ducks. He had 20 points in 28 games with Anaheim.

With the Ducks' playoff run now over, they will have to decide what to do with David Perron.

Anaheim acquired David Perron from Pittsburgh in January, but now his four-year, $15.25 million contract is over. Perron wasn't particularly productive with the Penguins, but he meshed well with Anaheim, scoring eight goals and 20 points in 28 regular season games. Unfortunately he suffered a shoulder injury which prevented him from playing in the regular season after March 20 and though he returned for the playoffs, he might not have been 100%. Still, his strong performance with the Ducks prior to the injury might be enough to warrant signing him to an extension.
