  • Red Wings' David Perron: Sets up two goals in win

    Perron registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Capitals.

    Perron doubling up on the apples helped him reach the 30-point mark for the season, with the veteran's running total comprised of 12 goals and 18 assists. The Wings have shifted him down to the third line, but this is a team that has rattled off six straight wins and there's no sense in fixing what isn't broken.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Brushes twine in commanding win

    Perron scored in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Flames.

    Perron supplied the fourth goal courtesy of a sweeping snapshot in the second period. After a slow start to the season, the 35-year-old is gaining steam in 2024. His latest run consists of three goals, five assists, and a pair of man-advantage points over the last month. Fantasy managers should still be able to roster Perron at a fair price given that most of the attention in Detroit is centered around stars relatively new to the team, such as Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: One of each in loss

    Perron scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Oilers.

    Perron is still generating offense at a strong rate, earning 12 points over 15 games since the start of January. The winger remains in a top-six role. He's at 11 goals, 26 points, 83 shots on net, 45 hits, 39 PIM and a minus-12 rating through 46 outings overall, but his recent play has made him a much more effective contributor from a fantasy standpoint.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Earns assist in OT win

    Perron delivered an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.

    Perron set up Lucas Raymond in the neutral zone and Raymond took care of the rest. It's been a decent month for Perron, as the veteran winger has recorded a point in seven of the past 11 games. The 35-year-old has just four multi-point efforts this season, but he's holding onto a No. 1 power-play role with half of his 24-point total taking place on the man advantage.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Logs 10th helper

    Perron recorded an assist and two hits in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Perron has earned an assist in three of the last five games, and he has six points over his last seven outings. The winger is up to 19 points (nine goals, 10 assists), 66 shots on net, 30 hits, 35 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 37 contests this season. He's steady in a top-six role with a little physicality, so he should continue to have fantasy appeal.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Doles out assist in victory

    Perron registered an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Kings.

    Perron is having a down year by his standards, scoring nine times to go with nine more assists and a minus-8 rating through 36 games. However, the veteran has 10 power-play points to render him useful in deep leagues. The Wings are committed to keeping Perron involved, hence his current assignment as a top-line winger with a spot on the No. 1 man-advantage unit.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Provides assist in win

    Perron logged a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Ducks.

    Perron set up Dylan Larkin's tally in the first period. With two goals and two assists over his last four games, Perron has gotten back in a groove after going scoreless for four contests following a six-game suspension. The winger is up to 17 points, 63 shots on net, 26 hits, 35 PIM and a minus-9 rating while seeing regular top-six usage through 34 outings overall.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Fuels late surge

    Perron scored twice on three shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

    Perron has three points over his last two outings after going scoreless in his first four contests back from a six-game suspension. The pair of goals were his first tallies since Nov. 26. The winger is up to nine goals, 16 points, 56 shots on net, 26 hits, 35 PIM and a minus-8 rating over 32 appearances. Perron should continue to see top-six minutes.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Eligible to play Friday

    Perron has served his six-game suspension and will be in contention to face the Flyers on Friday.

    Perron's return should see him in the mix for a top-six role, perhaps moving into a second-line spot skating with J.T. Compher and Joe Veleno. The 35-year-old Perron had appealed his suspension but the length of the review process prevented him from returning sooner and at this point he'll just be hoping to get some game checks back. With Perron set to return, the Wings have sent Austin Czarnik to the minors.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Appealing suspension

    The NHLPA has submitted an appeal on behalf of Perron for his six-game suspension that he was given Monday.

    Perron was given the suspension for cross-checking Artem Zub in Saturday's game versus the Senators. The 35-year-old Perron does not have a history of supplemental discipline, which may play in his favor during the appeal process. If the suspension stands as-is, the winger won't be eligible to return until Dec. 22 versus the Flyers.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Suspended six games

    Perron has been handed a six-game suspension for cross-checking Ottawa's Artem Zub.

    Perron will miss the next six games, including Monday's tilt against the Stars. He'll be eligible to return Dec. 22 against the Flyers. The veteran winger has 13 points in 26 games this season, including five goals and nine points over his last 15 appearances.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Offered in-person hearing

    Perron was offered an in-person hearing Sunday after cross-checking Artem Zub in Saturday's contest against Ottawa.

    Perron was assessed a match penalty for cross-checking Zub towards the head in Saturday's contest. The 35-year-old winger could be facing a lengthy suspension for the dangerous hit. Perron has seven goals and 13 points through 26 games this season.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Lights lamp twice on power play

    Perron scored two power-play goals in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Wild.

    He found the back of the net in the first and third periods, with both goals coming on one-timers from almost the exact same spot on the ice to the right of Filip Gustavsson. Perron's tallies gave him 300 for his career, and in 2023-24, he's collected seven goals and 11 points through 20 contests.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Adds insurance tally

    Perron scored an empty-net goal in Friday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.

    Perron's fifth goal may have taken place with the net empty, but he still had to work for it by intercepting a pass and sending it home from beyond center ice. The 35-year-old has been relegated to a middle-six role, as the Red Wings sought to shake things up after dropping both games last week in Sweden for the Global Series; they've since won two in a row.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Three points in win over Boston

    Perron scored a goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Bruins.

    The veteran forward was at the heart of Detroit's third-period comeback, potting the team's fourth goal on a bit of puck luck -- he fanned on his initial shot, but that just got Linus Ullmark out of position for his second attempt. Perron then helped set up Andrew Copp for the game-winner less than two minutes later. Perron snapped a five-game point drought with the season-best performance, and he has three goals and seven points through 12 contests to begin his second campaign with the Wings, with over half that production (two goals, two helpers) coming on the power play.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Supplies helper in win

    Perron notched an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Flames.

    Perron extended his point streak to three games with a helper on a Jake Walman tally in the third period. Through six contests, Perron has a solid four points, 11 shots on net, eight hits, four PIM and a minus-2 rating. He remains in a middle-six role at even strength with time on the top power-play unit, though the Red Wings were unable to cash in on their five power plays Sunday.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Two points including GWG

    Perron scored the game-winning goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

    The veteran winger got the puck in the low slot late in the second period with a defender draped all over him, and he still managed to get off a quick shot that eluded Joonas Korpisalo. Prior to Saturday, Perron had been one of the few Red Wings seeing regular power-play time who wasn't cashing in, but he now has two goals and three points in the last two games -- all with the man advantage.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Tallies on power play

    Perron scored a power-play goal on two shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.

    The goal stood as the game-winner, and it was Perron's first tally of the year. The 35-year-old winger sputtered out of the gate, dropping to the third line after beginning the year alongside Dylan Larkin. Perron has one goal, eight shots on net, six hits, four PIM and a minus-3 rating through four contests overall. With the Red Wings' offense clicking, he's likely to remain in the middle six for a while.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Moves down in lineup

    Perron will be replaced by Lucas Raymond on the top line for Saturday's home opener against the Lightning, Ansar Khan of reports, "We'll still flirt with that wing, but the added depth gives us some different looks," Red Wings coach Derek Lalonde said.

    The Wings will look to bounce back following a 4-3 season-opening loss to the Devils on Thursday. Based on this latest report, the line shuffling between Raymond and Perron -- who skated to a minus-2 rating without a point in his season debut -- is intended to create more chances for Dylan Larkin and Alex DeBrincat at even strength. Nonetheless, Perron retains plenty of value as a top-six contributor and is still a threat on the No. 1 power-play unit. He is fresh off a 56-point campaign with the Wings, which marked his first season in Detroit.
