Talent Analysis

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 returned to junior A hockey after a forgettable freshman season at Colorado College, playing for the BCHL's Wenatchee Wild in 2015-16. He is committed to playing college hockey at RPI in 2016-17. Engineers head coach Seth Appert is a former goaltender and has a reputation for developing goalies, most recently working with Sabres' prospect Jason Kasdorf. After attempting to play college hockey as an 18-year-old two years ago, Perry should be much better prepared this time around. He will have three years of college eligibility remaining at RPI.
