Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- David Perron
David Perron was born May 28, 1988 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. The first round, 26th overall selection of the St. Louis Blues in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Perron is a graduate of the QMJHL's Lewiston MAINEiacs.

An offensively gifted winger, Perron spent a single season in the QMJHL, leading the MAINEians in scoring with 39 goals and 83 points during the regular season. Perron's high-scoring playoff performance drove his club a President's Cup and a spot in the Memorial Cup.

Perron made his NHL debut with the Blues on October 12, 2007 and ended up appearing in 62 games with the club that season. He also led his team in plus/minus with a plus-15 rating and averaged over twelve minutes of ice-time per game.

In the summer of 2012, Perron was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Magnus Paajarvi and a second round draft choice.

After three losing seasons in Edmonton, Perron was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Rob Klinkhammer and a first round draft pick on January 2, 2015.

Perron would spend just over a calendar year in Pittsburgh before he was traded once again. This time sent to the Anaheim Ducks along with Adam Clendening in exchange for Carl Hagelin on January 16, 2016. Perron would finish the season with Anaheim and become an unrestricted free agent in the summer. On July 1, 2016, he signed a deal with the St. Louis Blues and would return to the club that drafted him for the 2016-17 season.

Perron suited up in all 82 games for the Blues during the 2016-17 season, notching 18 goals and adding 28 assists, but was left unprotected in the NHL Expansion Draft. He was subsequently selected by the Vegas Golden Knights and would join the club for their remarkable inaugural season. Appearing in 70 regular-season games, Perron scored 16 times to go along with a team-high 50 assists.

As a free agent in the summer of 2018, Perron signed once again with the St. Louis Blues, joining the club for his third tour of duty.
