BLOG: What the Oilers have in Perron

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

Oilers forward David Perron played 16:59 of ice time and had a two-point night (a goal and an assist) which included a short-handed goal.

Perron has been impressing the Oilers ever since they traded for him in the off-season and he projects to be a major asset to the team moving into the future.

“Boy, I think we got a lot,” said Oilers Head Coach Dallas Eakins. “We got a guy who can score, he competes hard, he’s not afraid to get his nose dirty and we’ve let him loose on the penalty kill a little bit as well. I think we’ve got a very well-round player and another guy that’s excited to play hockey and a guy that really likes to play the game. That’s important.”
