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.

In the past, the Detroit Red Wings found long-term success in partial thanks to a scouting department that unearthed gems like Sergei Fedorov, Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk past the draft’s first round. That trend has continued in recent years. Tomas Tatar, a second-round pick in 2009, burst onto the scene in 2014-15 with a 29-goal season while Gustav Nyquist, a fourth-round pick in 2008, posted consecutive seasons of 28 and 27 goals.
