Coach Paul Maurice is optimistic that Mathieu Perreault (lower body) will return before the end of Winnipeg's homestand.

He has been doing some skating and is hoping that a return could come as early as this weekend. That may be a little too optimistic, but we'll keep you posted on his status.

Mathieu Perreault (lower body) will likely be sidelined until April, according to coach Paul Maurice.

"Matty Perreault has got a significant lower-body injury, we would be hopeful he will be able to return by the end of regular season," Maurice said. "If he does, it won't be much sooner than that." Perreault is third on the Jets with 18 goals and he has 36 points in 56 games. This is a big blow to Winnipeg as they try to secure their Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

Forward Mathieu Perreault suffered a lower-body injury Monday night after taking a first-period hit from Edmonton defenseman Jeff Petry during the Jets` 5-4 shootout victory over the Oilers in Winnipeg.

Perreault did not return to the game, and his status was not divulged immediately by the Jets. Perreault's 18 goals are third most on the Jets. Later in the game, Winnipeg right wing Drew Stafford, obtained by the Jets in their Feb. 11 trade with the Buffalo Sabres, left the game because of an upper-body injury and did not return. The Jets finished the game with 10 forwards.

Mathieu Perreault accounted for a goal and two assists in Sunday's 5-3 victory versus Colorado.

He matched his personal best total from last year with his 18th goal of the campaign. Perreault has 35 points in 52 games, which has him on pace to comfortably pass the 43 points he scored in 2013-14 with the Anaheim Ducks.
Feb 9 - 9:58 AM

Mathieu Perreault scored two first period goals for the Jets, but the Flyers had a lot more players chipping in on offense in a 5-2 victory on Thursday night.

Perreault now has 17 goals on the season and 31 points so far in 47 games. He needs one more to match last year's total of 18, which is his career-high. The 27-year-old has 25 points in his past 23 games.

Mathieu Perreault will skate to the left Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik on Tuesday night against Pittsburgh.

The trio will make a fine second line as they've combined for 32 goals and 81 points on the season. Perreault for his part leads with 15 goals and 29 of those points.
Jan 27 - 6:58 PM

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) skated Monday and he could be ready to return on Tuesday night against Pittsburgh.

Coach Paul Maurice said the team would see how Perreault feels after the morning skate. It looked like Perreault was ready to play again because he skated with Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik and he saw time on the power play. He was red hot before getting injured against Chicago on Jan. 16 and he's hoping that streak can continue.
Jan 27 - 7:34 AM

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The Jets wanted to free up a roster spot in order to activate Jacob Trouba. Perreault missed Sunday's game and was already expected to be out Wednesday. He'll be eligible to be activated in time for the Jets' return following the All-Star break.
Jan 21 - 12:52 PM

As expected, Mathieu Perreault (upper body) won't play Wednesday night.

"We hope that there's enough healing that when he gets off this break that we can get him back in the lineup but we won't know until that happens," coach Paul Maurice said. Perreault was cross-checked in the left arm by Daniel Carcillo last Friday, which earned the Chicago forward a six-game suspension.
Jan 21 - 8:08 AM

Mathieu Perreault is expected to be out until at least after the Jan. 25th All-Star game with an undisclosed upper body injury.

He'll be replaced by TJ Galiardi on Sunday night against Arizona. Galiardi does not have any fantasy value to speak of.

Mathieu Perreault will miss some time because of the injury he suffered in Friday's game vs. Chicago.

Perreault was cross-checked by Blackhawks' forward Daniel Carcillo and he seemed to be clutching his arm coming off the ice. According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Perreault doesn't have a fracture but he will miss some games because of the injury.
Jan 17 - 1:26 PM

Mathieu Perreault exited Friday's game against Chicago early, and did not return due to an undisclosed injury.

Jan 16 - 10:40 PM

Mathieu Perreault lit the lamp four times Tuesday night as the Jets annihilated Florida by a score of 8-2.

Perreault has been exceptional of late as he has made up for a slow start to the campaign. After failing to find the back of the net in his first 19 games of the season, he has now tallied 15 times in the subsequent 24 outings. Dustin Byfuglien also registered a pair of goals in the winning effort while Evander Kane and Jay Harrison rounded out the scoring for Winnipeg.
