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
