Jets forward Mathieu Perreault finally broke his season-long goal drought Tuesday when he scored his first of the season in a 3-1 win over New Jersey.

Perreault has actually skated on the power play quite a bit this year so it's surprising how long his slump lasted. Perhaps this marker will get the juices flowing for him. Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik also found the back of the net for Winnipeg in the win.

Mathieu Perreault is still looking for his first goal of the season.

Perreault scored the shootout winner for the Jets on Saturday against Ottawa, but he has yet to score one during a game. "I feel like I've been playing good hockey, I just can't find a way to put them in," said Perreault. "If that can be a boost of confidence I finally got a goal, even if it doesn't count for my stats. It was a big one for us." The 26-year-old has just three assists in 15 games this season.

Mathieu Perreault picked up an assist in Winnipeg's 4-1 loss to Calgary on Sunday night.

It was his second helper of the campaign and his first since the Jets' opening game of the year. Perreault played a season-high of 17:30 of ice time in Sunday's defeat.

Mathieu Perreault might help Winnipeg in the faceoff circle this season.

He led the Ducks with a 52.6 winning percentage on 830 total draws during the 2013-14 campaign. The Jets finished 28th in faceoff wins last year at just 46.9 percent. Perreault inked a three-year deal worth $9 million to play in Winnipeg in the summer and he's expected to get an increased role from the one he had in Anaheim despite being penciled in to play on the third line.
Sep 17 - 9:34 AM

The Jets signed Mathieu Perreault on the first day of free agency.

He's expected to replace Olli Jokinen, who is still available as an unrestricted free agent. Interestingly, Perreault and Jokinen both recorded 18 goals and 43 points this past season. However, Perreault did it in 69 games and he's much younger. "I can bring a lot of speed," said Perreault after signing a three-year, $9 million deal. "Winnipeg has always been a team about speed. It's a part of my game that I like to use. I'm a smart player, I can produce, I can play a little bit of power play." He could be a good fit in Winnipeg and there's a chance he'll play with Evander Kane.
Jul 2 - 9:02 AM

The Winnipeg Jets have signed Mathieu Perreault to a three-year, $9 million contract.

He was not given a qualifying offer by the Ducks and became an unrestricted free agent Monday. With the Jets Perreault will likely play a bottom six role and will have little to no fantasy value.
Jul 1 - 1:27 PM

Mathieu Perreault was not given a qualifying offer, so he can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

However, the Ducks feel they presented him with a substantial contract offer. Perreault notched 18 goals and 43 points in 69 games with Anaheim last season. He could be a good Plan B option for teams looking for a productive center on the open market.
Jun 30 - 3:49 PM

Mathieu Perreault may not return to Anaheim as he is slated to become a restricted free agent on Tuesday.

The Ducks have Ryan Getzlaf and Rikard Rakell at center and have added Ryan Kesler and Nate Thompson in the last few days so that Perreault may be the odd man out in Anaheim. He had 18 goals and 43 points last season so he should be in demand by teams looking for a second line center.
Jun 30 - 6:56 AM

Mathieu Perreault is speaking with the Ducks about a new contract.

He's a pending restricted free agent who Anaheim GM Bob Murray wants to re-sign. Perreault has arbitration rights, so getting him under a new deal is viewed as a more pressing matter than fellow RFAs Jakob Silfverberg and Devante Smith-Pelly.

Mathieu Perreault's lower-body injury was a groin problem.

Perreault missed Game 4 of the second round as a result. He had two goals and three assists in 11 playoff contests.
May 19 - 1:26 PM

The Anaheim Ducks announced that center Mathieu Perreault is a game-time decision for Monday's Game 5 match against the Los Angeles Kings.

Perreault is nursing a lower-body injury that kept him out of Game 4. He's generally been dealing with nagging issues here and there. When healthy, he's been a solid contributor for Anaheim, especially in scoring 18 goals and 43 points despite being limited to 69 regular season contests. He has four points in eight postseason games as well.
May 11 - 3:43 PM

Mathieu Perreault (lower body) called himself a game-time decision for Saturday night.

He said he will receive treatment for his lower-body injury throughout the day and he hopes to be able to play in Game 4 versus the Kings. Perreault received 10:45 of ice time during Thursday's win in Los Angeles. If he can't play then Rickard Rakell will probably take his place in the lineup.
May 10 - 2:48 PM

Mathieu Perreault sustained a lower-body injury during Thursday's game.

The Ducks are listing Perreault as day-to-day. He has two goals and four points in eight playoff games.
May 9 - 2:58 PM

Ducks center Mathieu Perreault said he's ready for Game 1 tonight in the first game of a second-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings.

Perreault missed the Ducks' most recent game -- Game 6 of the first round against the Dallas Stars -- with a lower-body injury but has skated the past three days. Perreault usually centers right wing Teemu Selanne and left wing Patrick Maroon on what has been an effective third line.
