Sending a first round pick to the Edmonton Oilers is looking like a brilliant move by General Manager Jim Rutherford.

Especially after last week where Perron scored four times and added two assists over three games. Not only is he finding his name on the scoresheet, Perron is providing a much different and needed look on the power play because of his right-hand shot.

Whether he lines up on the left point, or along the left half-wall, Perron will be able to accept a pass for a one-timed shot on goal like he did Friday night on Long Island. Alternatively, he will be able to find a player on the weak-side like he did on Sunday’s against the Rangers.
