Mathieu Perreault quietly left the Winnipeg Jets bench during the third period against the Washington Capitals due to an undisclosed injury. Not only has this been a season of injuries causing the veteran forward to leave games, but his play hasnt been as prominent as the last few seasons. Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Perreault is usually leading the Jets attack, full on offense, and creativity, making whoever hes playing with a better player. He can go up and down the lineup, whether it being the first line, or the third line. He quickly became one of the Winnipeg Jets easiest players to play with. If someone was having an off day, Paul Maurice could simply put them with Perreault, and a few good shifts were to follow. This season has been a different story. Perreault has been one of the Jets more disappointing forwards in every game hes played in. This is mostly due to a lack of offence created. I have two reasons for Mathieu Perreaults weak play. The first reason speaks for why Perreault hasnt been noticed in key situations as much as in the past. This is because he hasnt been on the power play. Adam Lowry, Kyle Connor, and Patrik Laine have been integrated into the power play lineup over the nifty Perreault because of their high-end talent Eric Comrie Jersey. Stats show huge drop offs in player production when they arent on the power play, and this is just what happened to Perreault. With the power play 0-for-14 lately, it would be no surprise to see Mathieu playing the point alongside Byfuglien again, or on the half wall in place of Bryan Little. You cant do anything with an opportunity if you dont have one.

When he was playing on the wing Bobby Hull Jersey. Of course right now, that isnt an option for him, since the Jets only other top six centre other than Mark Scheifele is injured . When he gets to play wing, Perreault says himself he feels more comfortable, and lots of that may come from responsibility. Perreault has success when he is focusing on the offensive aspects of his game, and that is easier to complete on the wing. When playing as a middle-man, your responsibility turns more to the defensive side of the puck Josh Morrissey Jersey. So for us to see Mathieu Perreault return to 20-goal, 60-point form, we will first need to see him move down the Jets depth chart, so he can play left-wing. That will be accomplished once Bryan Little is back in the fold. They also need him to stay healthy, and get some time on the power play, and hell be back to star form in no time. Three easy fixes that will make a world of a difference.
