David Perron scored a pair of goals, including the game-winning tally in overtime, while adding a plus-2 rating and a minor penalty in Tuesday's game against Buffalo.

Perron failed to light the lamp over his first five outings, but he had managed three helpers over his past four contests. He scored 18 goals with 46 points last season and that type of production should again be possible since he is a top-six forward option in Vegas.

David Perron is thrilled with the Golden Knights top line of himself, James Neal and Cody Eakin.

All three played in the NHL last season and were selected in the expansion draft by Vegas who begin the season with a 2-0 record. "We’ve only been together a few games in the preseason," Perron said. "Now we’ve got James, and he obviously knows what to do with the puck, so we need to keep feeding him." Look for a 40 point season from Perron.

David Perron has been developing chemistry with Cody Eakin at training camp.

"He's a pretty easy player to play with, a hard worker and good on faceoffs," Perron said. "He does everything right on the ice and I think he's a guy I have chemistry with right away. He's made some good plays throughout the preseason. Obviously we need to translate that through regular season. I hope it keeps going that way, because it's been going well since I've been playing with him." Eakin has been productive in the preseason with four points in three games, while Perron has one goal and one assist in four outings.

David Perron can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2017-18 campaign and it's believed that Vegas will attempt to deal him at the trade deadline.

Perron was chosen from the Blues at the expansion draft and has a $3.75 million cap hit. He also has a modified no-trade clause, which stipulates three teams that he can't be traded to. Perron will likely be a top-six forward with the Golden Knights at the start of the season, though.

David Perron might end up being the player that Vegas takes from St. Louis in the expansion draft.

David Perron has been quiet in the postseason with one assist in eight games.

He has also been credited with just 11 shots on goal. Perron has struggled along with Patrik Berglund in the series against Nashville with one point and five shots between the two of them. "We need them," coach Mike Yeo said. "There’s no question. I think they can be a real huge factor in this series going forward. I think they have more to their game as far as getting into the offensive zone, getting in on the forecheck, being physical, making life miserable for their defensemen. I think we can do a better job of that."
