Perry has a large frame that allows him to naturally cover a good deal of the net but his athleticism is what really shines. He is nimble and sticks with a play no matter how many shots he faces. Like most young goaltenders he needs to improve his technical skills.
Perry completed his first season of college hockey at Colorado College in 2014-15. Projecting a ceiling for young goaltenders is difficult, especially when they have played at relatively low levels of hockey. Long-term Perry's tools and skill set suggest he has professional potential one day. How he develops over his next three seasons of college hockey will give a better indication of his true potential.
