News: Perron indicated Sunday that he had been playing through a rib injury in the playoffs, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Impact: Perron may require some type of surgery in the offseason, but it doesn't sound as though it would be anything impacting his availability for the start of the 2015-16 season. The winger finished the 2014-15 campaign tallying 41 points (17 goals, 24 assists) between the Oilers and Penguins over 81 games.

News: Perron will play on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz on Friday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Impact: "It will be different," Perron said. "Geno likes to cycle a lot in the offensive zone and move around a lot. I'm excited about playing with him for the first time." The winger hasn't scored a goal in 10 games, so the Pens will hope this gets him going. Blake Comeau has accordingly been dropped to the third line.
