David Perron is getting ready for his first game in Edmonton since being traded.

The Oilers dealt Perron to Pittsburgh in exchange for Rob Klinkhammer and a 2015 first-round pick. Perron has flourished with the Penguins, scoring six goals and nine points in 12 contests. "I'm definitely getting one of the best opportunities you could get in the league as a winger, playing with Sid and [Kunitz]," Perron noted. "The situations are a lot different."
Feb 3 - 9:12 AM

David Perron had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 victory over Winnipeg Tuesday night.

Perron has six goals and nine points in nine games since joining the Pittsburgh Penguins. We were looking for him to get a big offensive boost following the trade that got him out of Edmonton and he hasn't disappointed. Look for him to stay very strong for the rest of the season.
Jan 28 - 11:31 AM

David Perron is expected to play against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

Originally questionable due to illness, Perron is on the ice for warmups and is a good bet to play tonight. Through eight games since being acquired from Edmonton, Perron has five goals and seven points, two of which have come with the man advantage.

David Perron is battling an illness.

Perron's status for Tuesday's contest remains unclear as a result. The Penguins have a lot of game-time decisions, which makes it somewhat difficult to project their lineups for their upcoming contest. However, it's believed that Perron will play alongside Nick Spaling and Chris Kunitz if he's available.
Jan 27 - 11:35 AM

David Perron had a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

Perron assisted on Sidney Crosby's first period power play goal, and he added his own marker in the third period to cut the Rangers' lead to 4-2. The 26-year-old has collected at least one point in four of his six games since joining the Penguins. He has four goals and two assists in his last three games. Like many predicted, Perron has received a significant fantasy boost by joining Pittsburgh.
Jan 18 - 3:24 PM

David Perron scored his fourth goal in five games for the Penguins on Friday.

Perron was picked up via a trade with the Oilers on January 2 and his season has been revitalized in Pittsburgh as he now has nine goals and 24 points this season. He was a minus-two on Friday and that gives him a minus-19 rating but that should improve drastically in the second half.
Jan 17 - 9:40 AM

David Perron enjoyed his first big game as a member of the Penguins Tuesday as he scored two goals and added an assist in a 7-2 blowout win over Minnesota.

Perron had only recorded one point in his first three games with the Pens, but made up for it in this outing. With a plum assignment alongside Sidney Crosby, he could certainly be one of the more valuable fantasy commodities over the league's second half. Pittsburgh also received goals from Marcel Goc, Chris Kunitz, Brandon Sutter, Paul Martin and Kris Letang in the thrashing.

David Perron scored a goal on his first shot as a member of the Penguins, though his team lost 4-1 to the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Perron should be scooped up in a majority of leagues, but if he’s not, let this be the last reminder. He is going to play in a top-six role with either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, two of the best pivots in the game. Saturday, he was on Crosby’s wing. Perron also had six shots on goal in 15:47. Steve Downie and Crosby recorded the assists on the goal. Downie also had four penalty minutes.
Jan 3 - 10:36 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have announced that David Perron will be in their lineup on Saturday.

There was bit of a concern that his work visa would not be processed in time but apparently that is not the case. It is unknown at this time if Perron will line up with Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, but it should be one of the two. Get him in your lineup ASAP.
Jan 3 - 11:18 AM

David Perron is hoping that he will be in the Pittsburgh lineup Saturday.

Perron was dealt from Edmonton on Friday and needs to acquire a work visa to play in the United States. He has only five goals and 19 points in 37 games with a minus-17 rating but don't let that fool you as he will be much improved in Pittsburgh as a top-six forward with either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin as his center.
Jan 3 - 10:04 AM

David Perron won't play for Pittsburgh on Friday.

The Penguins acquired him from Perron the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for their 2015 first-round pick and Rob Klinkhammer. When Perron makes his Penguins debut, it will almost certainly be on a line with either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.
Jan 2 - 1:37 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired David Perron from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a 2015 first-round pick and Rob Klinkhammer.

Pittsburgh has been in the market for a top-six winger for a while, especially with Pascal Dupuis out indefinitely due to a blood clot in his lung. Perron has 19 points and a minus-17 rating in 38 contests this season, but the move from Edmonton to Pittsburgh should boost his fantasy value substantially. Meanwhile, this makes it less likely that Steve Downie will see time on one of Pittsburgh's top-two lines in the future.
Jan 2 - 12:36 PM

David Perron picked up pair of helpers in the Oilers' 4-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

Perron and rookie Leon Draisaitl each recorded two assists. Jordan Eberle, Matt Fraser and Andrew Ferrence were the scorers for the Oilers in a losing cause. For Perron, he has 19 points in 38 games. He has just five goals on the year but it's not for lack of trying as he has 75 shots on the season, but just a 6.8 shooting percentage.
Jan 1 - 1:34 AM

David Perron picked up a pair of assists in the Oilers' 4-3 loss to the Sharks on Thursday night.

Classic hockey secondary helpers. Perron dug through the muck along the offensive wall to keep the play alive and was fortunate to be part of the string of possession leading to the goals. Full marks to him for doing great work. Perron now has 12 assists and 17 points on the season.
