Mathieu Perreault: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Another rising talent in the nation's capital, Perreault's strength is scoring as he put 16 goals in the net over 64 games last year. With limited ice time, just 12 minutes a game, Perrault didn't see as many scoring chances as other forwards. Perreault flexed his offensive muscle but unfortunately for him, the Capitals are ripe with centers and Perreault is blocked on the first and second lines. He is likely to start at center on the third line and could exceed previous yearly totals but expectations must be tempered; remember his name in keeper leagues and deep single season leagues.
Perreault has really silenced his critics to get his shot in the NHL. As another camp approaches, he will try to crack the roster and with some departures has a pretty good shot. He is an undersized kid but works like a wild man and has really provided some big points for the Caps. He is only 23 and has 56 career games under his belt. Consider him a lock to be helping this club one way or another this season, but not when it comes to fantasy.
A sixth round pick, Perreault has defied the odds about his size and proved he is capable of making it in the NHL. Last season he split the season between Washington and AHL Hershey. He spent a total of a little over a month in D.C. throughout the season. In 21 games in Washington Perreault showed his scoring ability by notching four goals and adding five assists. Some of his qualities consist of above average in the face-off circle, great vision and awareness, and a guy that shows up for the big games. Washington may be able to make room for him to start the season, if he does not just flat out earn a spot. They saw enough of him last year to know he can play at the NHL level, and may be their top prospect coming in to the 2010-11 season.
While his size is an issue, there is no questioning Perreault’s talent. He is quick and creative, with great vision, a quick shot and is a playmaker with the puck. He compiled 50 points (11G, 39A) in AHL Hershey last season and will find himself there again this season. He has a shot to make it to the NHL, but his lack of size really hurts his chances.
While his size is an issue, there is no questioning Perreault’s talent. He is quick and creative, with great vision, a quick shot and is a playmaker with the puck. He led the the QMJHL in scoring last season, compiling 114 points off of 34 goals and 80 assists. He has a shot to make it to the NHL, but his lack of size really hurts his chances. He should get a chance in the AHL this year, and needs to show off that speed and skill if he intends on staying around.
The small center -- he's listed at 5-foot-8 and 151 pounds -- finished third in the QMJHL last season behind fellow Capitals' prospect Francois Bouchard and linemate Thomas Beauregard with 119 points in 67 games. Frankly, the only real thing holding the 19-year-old back is his size. He'll likely get a shot in the AHL next season.
