History

2010-11: Chase Perry played for Minnesota’s Andover High School as a freshman — sharing the goaltending duties with junior Nate Stong. In 16 games he was 4-9 with two shutouts and had a 3.69 goals against and .895 save percentage.

2011-12: Perry took over as the starter at Andover in his sophomore season — leading the Huskies to the Section 7AA championship game against Duluth East. He was 16-6-2 in 25 regular season games with a 2.68 goals against and .923 save percentage. Perry was 2-1 in three sectional playoff games with a 3.87 goals against and .895 save percentage. He was selected by Sioux Falls in the 21st round (301st overall) of the 2012 USHL Entry Draft.

2012-13: Perry participated in the Upper Midwest Elite Hockey league in the fall before returning to Andover for his junior season. He was 10-10-2 with a 2.70 goals against and .910 save percentage in 25 regular season games. Perry allowed 3 goals on 20 shots in the Huskies’ 4-1 loss to Elk River in the first round of the Section 7AA playoffs. Perry was selected by Wenatchee in the 11th round (190th overall) of the 2013 NAHL Entry Draft.

2013-14: Perry joined the NAHL’s Wenatchee Wild; foregoing his senior year at Andover High School. Perry was ranked 4th amongst North American goaltenders in Central Scouting’s mid-term rankings prior to the 2014 NHL Draft.

 

Talent Analysis
Having a large frame allows Perry 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.
Future
Projecting a ceiling for young goaltenders is difficult, especially when they have played at relatively low levels of hockey. Perry will attend Colorado College beginning in 2014-15, where he will have four years to win the starting job and improve his technique.
