April 2022 – Perfetti has been limited to 18 NHL games so far this season. After cracking the opening night roster and serving for two games before being a healthy scratch, he was held off the scoresheet and averaged just 8:56 of ice time over the two game span. He made his way to the minors, where the then 19-year-old looked quite comfortable, sporting a near point per game pace (six goals, nine assists) in 17 games. Perfetti made his inevitable Jets return on January 6th , where he gained confidence by the game. Despite playing 63% of his time in the Jets’ impressive top-six forward group, he averaged 14 minutes per night, seeing limited power-play time and scoring seven points. Stemming from a hit on February 17th , Perfetti was placed on LTIR (March 4th), with no clear timeline for his return at the moment. Justin Kaye

October 2021 – Perfetti, the Winnipeg Jets’ 10th overall pick from the 2020 NHL entry draft, made his NHL debut versus Anaheim. The 5-foot-10 center played right-wing while skating on a line with Adam Lowry and Jansen Harkins. He received just under 10 minutes of ice time, finishing at minus-one with one hit. The Jets, of course, were without number one Center Mark Scheifele, who was serving the final game of his suspension, which he received during last year’s playoffs for steamrolling the Habs’ Jake Evans. Obviously, there is the possibility of Perfetti having a new set of linemates upon Scheifele’s return for game two of the season. The Ontario native is a former World Championship Gold Medal
