Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Nathan Perrott
Nathan Perrott was born December 8, 1976 in Owen Sound, Ontario. Originally drafted in the 2nd round by the New Jersey Devils in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Perrott is a graduate of the Ontario Hockey League.

The hard-nosed winger from Owen Sound, Ontario played four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with the Oshawa Generals and the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds before making his minor professional debut with New Jersey's AHL affiliate in Albany in 1995-96.

After playing in four games with Albany in 1995-96, Perrot was returned to his junior team and later that summer signed as a free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks. Throughout his career in the OHL, Perrott scored 75 goals and added 92 assists for 162 points and 605 penalty minutes.

In 1997-98 Perrott split the season with the Blackhawks IHL affiliate in Indianapolis and the ECHL's Jacksonville Lizard Kings before earning a permanent roster spot with Indianapolis the following year.

In his first full season with Indianapolis, Perrott led his team in penalty minutes with 307 and finished seventh in the IHL before joining the IHL's Cleveland Lumberjacks in 1999-2000. For a second consecutive season, Perrot led his team in penalty minutes with 248 and was soon on the move once again following the season.

After two and half seasons in the "I" Perrott joined Chicago's AHL affiliate in Norfolk and had a career high 28 points while leading his team in penalty minutes for the third consecutive season before the Blackhawks traded his rights to the Nashville Predators early into the 2001-02 season.

Even though he spent the majority of the season in the AHL, Perrott impressed the Predators brass enough to play in 22 games during the regular season. Perrott saw action in one NHL game in 2002-03 with Nashville, but spent the majority his playing time with Nashville's AHL affiliate in Milwaukee, before being acquired by the Toronto Maple Leafs in December of 2002. Upon being acquired by the Leafs, Perrott went to finish the 2002-03 season with the team's AHL affiliate St. John's.

In his first full season with the Leaf organization in 2003-04, Perrott played in a career high 40 NHL games. After spending the following season with the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate in St. Johns, Perrott was dealt by the Leafs to the Dallas Stars. He would appear in 23 games with the Stars in the 2005-06 season and eventually re-sign with the Maple Leafs in October, 2006. After only four games with the Maple Leafs AHL affiliate in the 2006-07 season, Perrott signed as a free agent with a club team in Switzerland.
