Mathieu Perreault will play against the Anaheim Ducks for the first time since the team decided not to re-sign him last year.
Perreault said Anaheim's decision not to bring him back made him "a little sour". "You play there for a year. Bruce (Boudreau, Anaheim's coach) I had him in Washington, I think he liked me. I thought I was going to re-sign. But it didn't happen," said Perreault. "It's all behind me now and (today) there's no friends on the ice. It worked out just fine for me. I'm having a lot of fun here, and we're on a great run." The 26-year-old has three goals and eight points in 26 games this season. Dec 7 - 9:25 AM

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) was on the ice for an optional skate on Thursday.

"I felt pretty good," said Perreault, who sat out Wednesday night. "I was able to take some shots and stuff so we’ll see how it feels tomorrow. It felt not bad today so hopefully tomorrow will be even better. I tried a few things... took faceoffs, shots, little battles along the boards and it felt not too bad. I'd like to play. If I feel like I can play then I'd like to be in the lineup." He might be ready to return on Friday.

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) didn't play Wednesday night.

He might be able to return as early as Friday's game in Boston, so the ailment doesn't appear to be something to worry about.
Nov 27 - 9:40 AM

Mathieu Perreault is listed as day-to-day after he left Tuesday night's game against Columbus.

He left the game and did not return after a hit from Nick Foligno in the second period. Perreault has generated two goals and six points in 23 games this season.
Nov 26 - 9:44 AM

Jets forward Mathieu Perreault was forced from Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets due to an upper-body injury.

We're not sure how Perreault suffered the injury, but the timing is poor considering he scored his first two goals of the season over the past week. Stay tuned for updates.
Nov 25 - 9:25 PM

Mathieu Perreault had a goal and an assist in Winnipeg's loss to Detroit on Thursday night.

Perreault failed to score in his first 19 games of the season, but now has a tally in two straight games as the 26-year-old is riding some momentum. He has six points in 21 games so far.
Nov 20 - 10:57 PM

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.
Nov 19 - 5:29 AM

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.
Nov 9 - 9:02 AM

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.
Oct 20 - 10:06 AM

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.
