History

2006-07: David Perron tore up the QMJHL in 2006-07, his first campaign in the league. His team-leading 28 playoff points, in addition to the 83 he accumulated in the regular season, helped the Lewiston Maineiacs reach the Memorial Cup. Perron was chosen in the first round, 26th overall, of the 2007 NHL Draft by the St. Louis Blues.

 

Talent Analysis

Perron's game is based around his great individual skill, which makes him one of the most dangerous offensive players on the ice. He is especially adept at stickhandling his way past defenders and utilizing his accurate shooting to make opposing goaltenders nervous whenever he is near. His vision within the offensive zone also allows him to set up teammates for scoring opportunities.

 

Future

Perron was dealt by the St. Louis Blues to the Edmonton Oilers in a deal that brought Magnus Paajarvi to the Blues.
