Coach Craig Berube disclosed Wednesday that he doesn't anticipate Perron (upper body) joining the Blues on their upcoming three-game road trip, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Perron looks to be headed for another three games on the sidelines, placing his next potential return date Feb. 19. The return of Robert Thomas on Feb. 2 helped provide some depth up front for a surging Blues club that will only get better when Perron is cleared to play.
Coach Craig Berube said he's optimistic Perron (upper body) will return for the Blues' upcoming road trip starting Thursday in Arizona, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Perron has sat out nine straight games. Meanwhile, the Blues are working like they haven't done before with seven straight wins while averaging 4.14 goals per contest. There's still a spot reserved for Perron in the lineup as the veteran had a 13-game, 16-point streak rolling before he was injured.
Perron (upper body) will remain in the press box through at least Sunday's game against the Predators, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Perron looked to be an option for Sunday's rematch with the Predators, but the veteran winger will have to wait until at least Tuesday to take a crack at extending his pre-injury 13-game point streak. The Blues will likely roll with the same group of forwards Sunday that took down Nashville on Saturday.
Perron (upper body) won't play Saturday against the Predators, but he could be available for the rematch in Nashville on Sunday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Perron's injury surfaced at the most inopportune time -- in the midst of a 13-game point streak. He has missed six straight games and will be headed for a seventh Saturday, but he could get a chance to extend his streak as soon as Sunday. The veteran winger has been in vintage form, coming off his best season to date with 66 points in 70 games for the Golden Knights. He's backed that with another 35 in 45 games this season, though it would be somewhat surprising if Perron can maintain his career-best 20.0 shooting percentage.
Perron (upper body) will miss the next two games, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
The veteran won't play Tuesday or Thursday, but Perron could return Saturday versus the Predators. He's missed the Blues' past four games, dealing with an upper-body injury. The veteran winger, in 45 appearances, has 35 points and is averaging an impressive 0.78 points per game in 2018-19.
