Brendan Perlini: Cut from PTO
Perlini was released from a professional tryout agreement with the Hurricanes on Friday.

Hurricanes' Brendan Perlini: Joining Hurricanes on PTO
Perlini signed a professional tryout agreement with Carolina on Monday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Perlini last appeared in the NHL during the 2021-22 campaign when he recorded five points in 23 games with the Oilers. The 27-year-old has 81 points in 262 career NHL contests. He'll compete for a bottom-line role in training camp.... See More ... See Less
Brendan Perlini: Let go by Edmonton
Perlini won't be qualified by the Oilers, so he'll become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
Perlini appeared in just 23 games with the Oilers in 2021-22, picking up five points over that span, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. Perlini will almost assuredly need to settle for a two-way contract in order to remain in the NHL in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Lands on waivers
Perlini was placed on waivers Monday.
Perlini has averaged 8:22 of ice time and tallied five points over 23 games this season. If he clears waivers unclaimed, the 25-year-old will likely be assigned to AHL Bakersfield.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Not playing often
Perlini has appeared in just one of the Oilers' nine games in February.
The head coaching change from Dave Tippett to Jay Woodcroft has done nothing for Perlini's playing time. He saw just 3:48 of ice time in Saturday's game versus the Jets before returning to the press box Sunday versus the Wild. The 25-year-old has five points, 27 hits and 23 shots on net in 22 games, so his absence from action won't really be noticed by most fantasy managers.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Tallies in win
Perlini scored a goal and added three hits in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Flames.
Perlini put the Oilers ahead in the second period with a long-range snipe. The 25-year-old has scored in three of his last four appearances, though that span covers 18 days as the Oilers have been in a thin part of their schedule. The winger didn't click on the top line Saturday -- his goal came after he swapped places with Ryan McLeod. Perlini has four goals, one assist, 21 shots on net, 26 hits and a minus-3 rating in 20 contests overall. Recent scoring surge aside, he's not particularly intriguing from a fantasy perspective....

Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Available versus Panthers
Perlini (undisclosed) will be in the lineup against Florida on Thursday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Perlini has goals in back-to-back games and is expected to suit up in a first-line role alongside Connor McDavid, which should bolster his fantasy value heading into Thursday's clash. Once Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) is cleared to return, Perlini could find himself headed back to the minors, though his recent run of form could make that a difficult decision for the Edmonton coaching staff....

Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Misses practice Wednesday
Perlini (undisclosed) wasn't at Wednesday's practice, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
It's unclear what Perlini, who just returned from COVID-19 protocols Friday, is dealing with, so he should be considered day-to-day until further notice. The 25-year-old has only four points in 18 NHL games this season.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Scores in loss
Perlini scored a goal in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Senators.
Perlini logged just 5:23 of ice time in the game. He's scored in each of his last two appearances. Playing limited minutes in a part-time role on the Oilers' fourth line isn't going to make Perlini a steady source of offense. He's at three goals, one assist, 20 shots on net, 23 hits and a minus-2 rating in 18 outings overall.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Returns from virus
Perlini cleared COVID-19 protocols Friday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
Perlini didn't miss any games after entering protocols last Saturday. The 25-year-old has tallied three points in 17 games this season and figures to play his usual, fourth-line role when Edmonton resumes its schedule Saturday against the Senators.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Out with COVID-19
The Oilers placed Perlini in COVID-19 protocols Saturday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Perlini will miss Edmonton's next two games, and the following two games have been postponed, meaning he won't play any sooner than Jan. 16. The fourth-liner has three points in 17 contests and should return to his regular role once he clears protocols.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Lights lamp in loss
Perlini scored a goal on three shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Perlini got the Oilers on the board at 9:58 of the first period. The tally was his second of the year, though he's picked up all three of his points this season in his last four games. With the Oilers' forward group running a bit thin, Perlini will likely remain a fixture in the bottom six in the near term. The 25-year-old is unlikely to score enough to draw much fantasy interest.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Two points in Thursday's win
Perlini scored a goal on seven shots, dished an assist, logged two hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
Perlini set up Derek Ryan's first-period tally before scoring one of his own in the second. The 25-year-old Perlini had been a non-factor in his previous appearances this season, logging no points and just six shots on net before Thursday's explosion on offense. He's still expected to see just a bottom-six role, so don't expect a repeat effort any time soon.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Called up Tuesday
Perlini was called up from AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday.
With Zach Hyman (shoulder) absent, Perlini will be on hand as forward depth. He's not expected to play Tuesday, though with Ryan McLeod entering COVID-19 protocols, the Oilers will need to make sure their other players don't test positive for the virus.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: On waivers Tuesday
Perlini was designated for waivers by Edmonton on Tuesday.
With Devin Shore (lower body) cleared to return, Perlini was the odd man out on the Oilers' roster. Considering the 25-year-old Perlini is pointless in 13 games this season, he should clear waivers and be assigned to AHL Bakersfield. If he suits up for the Condors, the 2014 12th overall pick will be playing in the minors for the first time since 2016-17.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Offense nonexistent
Perlini has no points through 12 appearances this season.
Fourth-liners in Edmonton don't see a lot of playing time -- Perlini is averaging just 7:39 of ice time per game. He's managed 16 hits, six shots on net and a minus-3 rating in limited action. There's almost no chance he moves beyond the fourth line this year, so fantasy managers don't need to track the 25-year-old's progress.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Brendan Perlini: Signs two-way deal with Edmonton
Perlini signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Oilers on Saturday.
Perlini spent the 2020-21 campaign with HC Ambri-Piotta of Switzerland's NL, picking up nine goals and 16 points through 21 contests. The 25-year-old forward will likely split time between AHL Bakersfield and the Oilers in 2021-22.... See More ... See Less
Brendan Perlini: Doesn't receive qualifying offer
Perlini did not get a qualifying offer from the Red Wings and will become a UFA on Friday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Perlini played 40 games between the Red Wings and Blackhawks in 2019-20, registering just four points and a minus-18 rating. The forward is now three years removed from his career-high 30-point output with the Coyotes in 2017-18. Perlini will be on his fourth team in three seasons if he doesn't return to the Red Wings when free agency opens Friday.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Brendan Perlini: Hardly plays in return
Perlini, who sat out the previous four games as a healthy scratch, logged just 6:51 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
The Red Wings scratched Justin Abdelkader due to an illness, which paved the way for Perlini to rejoin the lineup. Still, he doesn't see nearly enough ice time to warrant a look in fantasy games.... See More ... See Less
