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.

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.

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 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.

Mathieu Perreault is enjoying a nine-game point streak.

This is the first time he's ever recorded at least a point in more than five consecutive games. "I'm just taking it as they go right now," Perreault said. "It's the end of the season, and we're coming close to the playoffs. I feel good about myself." He has set new career-highs this season with 18 goals and 40 points in 62 games.
Apr 2 - 8:27 AM

Mathieu Perreault's power play goal in the third period extended his point streak to eight games on Saturday.

It was Perreault's 18th goal of the season as he has eight points in his last eight games to give him 39 points in 61 games. Perreault saw first line power play time on Saturday as he played 4:20 minutes with the man-advantage. He is worth a look at this time in deep pools and is definitely someone to pick up in playoff pools as many think the Ducks will go deep into the playoffs and perhaps even win the Stanley Cup.
Mar 30 - 2:31 AM

Mathieu Perreault scored a goal and registered an assist in Anaheim's 4-3 overtime loss to Edmonton Friday evening.

Veteran forward Teemu Selanne scored the other goal for the Ducks, while Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf both assisted two goals in the loss.

Mathieu Perreault potted a very important goal against the Avalanche on Friday night.

After Ben Lovejoy's goal put the Ducks up 5-2, the Avs came back late in the second period with two straight to close the deficit. But Perreault answered with 49 seconds left with his 13th of the season. "Huge goal," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We kept saying, 'Shoot the puck!' It had eyes tonight."
