Three days after he was traded by the Washington Capitals, Mathieu Perreault made his debut for the Anaheim Ducks. He centered Anaheim’s second line and skated with young stud Jakob Silfverberg and future hall-of-famer Teemu Selanne, so maybe no more feeling sorry for him.
Perreault’s performance was about as good as it could be in a lopsided 6-1 loss in which your papa bear head coach got assaulted by a pane of glass.
In 15:14 of ice time, the tiny French-Canadian won 13 of 16 face-offs (81%), had one hit, and created a bunch of chances. He wore #22 (looks so weird) and got a hair cut.
