David Perron broke his scoring slump in a big way in helping the St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 6-4 on Saturday.
After going without a point in his first five games back with the Blues, Perron exploded against Calgary, generating the third hat trick of his NHL career while also posting an assist. It was a quiet start for Perron even beyond the lack of production, but he has the skills to occasionally take over a game, something the Blues sorely need. Oct 23 - 12:56 AM

David Perron is happy to be back in St. Louis.

Perron inked a two-year contract with the Blues, bringing him back to the team that drafted him for the first time since 2013. "I really missed playing in the city and I wanted to get another shot and hopefully make the best of it this time," Perron said. "I think what I was really happy about is how much ‘Hitch’ pushed to get me. With all the rumors that were out there, it just kind of proves that everyone was wrong, and I’m happy about that." He had 12 goals and 36 points in 71 games between Anaheim and Pittsburgh in 2015-16.

Updating a previous report, David Perron's deal includes a limited no trade clause.

The clause states that he can name three teams he will not accept a trade to. It is a small safety blanket for Perron but it does not guarantee him not being moved by the Blues again. He generated 20 points in 28 games with Anaheim last season after he was acquired from Pittsburgh.

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.

While David Perron returned from a separated shoulder for Game 1 of the Ducks' first round series, it sounds like he isn't fully over the injury.
