Vegas does not have a Captain. Instead, they have SIX Alternates. Perron is one of the half dozen, and maybe the most well-traveled of the bunch. Drafted by the St. Louis Blues, Perron spent parts of seven seasons with the Blues in two stints.
He was traded by the Blues to Edmonton, by the Oilers to the Penguins, and from Pittsburgh to Anaheim. When he reached free agent status, he returned to the Blues. Despite playing every game for the Blues and wracking up 46 points in the 2016-17 season, the Blues left him unprotected in the expansion draft.
Perron has been great for the Knights. Even while missing games due to a concussion, he’s been among their most productive players. Much like Neal, Vegas made a bold decision to not trade the pending free agent.
