Perron moves back onto the top line for tonight's game. Through 27 games, the former 19th overall pick has six goals and 19 points. Playing with Backes and Oshie is probably his best chance at productivity.
There has been some thought that Perron could play this weekend but he has yet to give that indication to GM Doug Armstrong. Perron was also hit by the flu bug that recently made its way around the Blues dressing room.
Similar to Sidney Crosby, Perron will return to the lineup when he feels ready to get back into a game. Reports continue to be positive on the young sniper but how he produces is anyone's guess.
