  • 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.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Leads by example in Detroit

    Perron concluded his first season with Detroit having deposited 24 goals, 32 assists and 22 power-play points through 82 games.

    The veteran stalwart didn't miss a single game, and team captain Dylan Larkin was the only one to outpace Perron in points among the Detroit skaters, though it was a 23-point difference. GM Steve Yzerman spoke to the media Friday for an end-of-season address, highlighting the positive impact his veteran additions had on the Original Six franchise. "I really liked the veterans that we brought in this year," Yzerman said. "I liked their attitude and character. They helped our team on and off the ice. I'll continue to try to add those types of players to help us as we build a young team that compete for playoffs and Stanley Cups hopefully."

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Logs three points in win

    Perron tallied two goals and an assist in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Canadiens.

    Perron assisted on Lucas Raymond's opening goal before doubling Detroit's lead to 2-0 in the first period, grabbing a stretch pass from Jordan Oesterle before beating Cayden Primeau on a breakaway. Perron would add a second goal in the third, redirecting a feed from Olli Maatta. The 34-year-old Perron has been productive lately, tallying six goals and nine points in his last five contests. He's up to 22 goals and 31 assists through 77 games this season.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Pots 20th of season

    Perron scored a power-play goal in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Jets.

    He ruined Connor Hellebuyck's shutout bid midway through the third period with his 20th goal of the season, but there weren't many other highlights for the Red Wings. Perron has reached the 20-goal plateau in each of the last four full NHL campaigns, missing by only one tally in the pandemic-shortened 2020-21 season.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Gets two helpers Thursday

    Perron registered two assists in Detroit's 3-2 win over Carolina on Thursday.

    It was Perron's second straight multi-point game. Over his last six outings, he's contributed three goals and eight points. That's brought him up to 19 goals and 49 points in 74 appearances in 2022-23. Perron's within striking distance of reaching the 50-point milestone for the fourth consecutive campaign.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Two apples as Wings prevail

    Perron managed two assists in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

    Perron's contributions cannot be overstated, as the veteran helped the Red Wings slide into the second wild-card playoff spot within the Eastern Conference. Granted, there's plenty more hockey to be played before anything is officially decided, but Perron is leading by example and providing hope for a franchise that hasn't made the playoffs since 2016. A mainstay on the man advantage, Perron has recorded 14 goals, 23 assists and 15 power-play points through 57 games.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Key in shootout win

    Perron notched two assists, two shots on goal, two hits and a minus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Oilers.

    Both of Perron's helpers came on the power play. He also had one of the Red Wings' two tallies in the shootout to help them secure a fourth straight win. The 34-year-old winger is up to 34 points (14 on the power play), 127 shots on net, 69 hits and a minus-1 rating through 53 appearances.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Earns power-play assist

    Perron registered a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

    Perron saw 7:51 of power-play ice time in the matinee, and it was his man-advantage apple on a Dylan Larkin goal that helped the Wings to a 3-1 advantage in the second period. On the downside, the veteran managed only one shot; he's either been blanked or put up just one shot in 15 games. Perron remains a steady offensive contributor overall, but with 14 goals, the veteran will be hard-pressed to match the 27 tallies that he recorded with the Blues last season.

  • Red Wings' David Perron: Lights lamp Tuesday

    Perron scored a goal on five shots and added five hits in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes.

    Perron seems to have found his offense again -- he has a pair of goals and an assist over the last two contests after going scoreless in the previous eight games. The winger reached the 30-point mark Tuesday. He's collected 10 of his points on the power play while adding 111 shots on net, 57 hits, 24 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 43 outings.
