May 2022 – After starting the AHL season with 15 points in 11 games, Perreault came down to earth with just four in his next 22. Consistency is obviously an issue, which is fine as he only just turned 20 and was very young for the AHL. Defense is also an issue, but there is still plenty of time to address those things. Still a couple of years away. – Dobber
July 2021 – Another player who started his pro career off early because of the pandemic, Perreault played in 27 games for the San Diego Gulls. While he did not have the flashy stats of other rookies (three goals and 17 points in 27 games), the coaching staff in San Diego worked with him on the defensive side of the puck as that is where he needs improvement. The Montreal native was one of the best shooters to come out of the 2020 draft class and his skating is one of his best assets. If he plays at the OHL level this coming season, it will not be a step back. This would give him time to develop on both sides of the puck and the chance to see if he can develop into a top line player or just a powerplay specialist.
October 2020 – GM Bob Murray will take his time with Perreault and let him develop in the OHL for the rest of his eligibility. The right-winger oozes talent when it comes to putting the puck in the net, but he needs time to work on his play in the defensive zone. The Ducks have a number of young, puck distributing centers in their pipeline, which makes Anaheim a great spot for the Canadian winger. Lucas Main
October 2020 – Perreault was drafted 27th overall by the Ducks. Perreault could push for an NHL job after two more years in the OHL. Jokke Nevalainen
