David Perron On The Power Play

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

An ineffective power play has cost the Detroit Red Wings many games over the past six seasons.

David Perron should help in that area. He scored a career-high 11 power-play goals with St. Louis last season and has tallied 33 in the past four years.

That is one reason general manager Steve Yzerman signed Perron to a two-year contract with a $4.75 million average annual value one week ago at the start of free agency.

“A team that goes on a good run on the power play usually starts the year pretty well,” Perron said. “If you start behind the eight-ball, and you have to dig yourself out, it’s tough to come back and have a good season. I think with the Blues last year we had the best power play in the history of the team. I was part of that solution. It’s something that I want to help.”
