Perron Out With Shoulder Problem

On Monday afternoon, the Anaheim Ducks announced that forward David Perron is currently listed as week-to-week with a shoulder injury.  The Ducks are currently on the road, so the team sent him back home for all the medical testing, but the initial prognosis doesn't sound very good.

There isn't any indication that Perron's regular season is done yet, but with only a few weeks to go and their playoff spot nearly set in stone, one would imagine that if Perron gets back at all, it will only be with a game or two left, trying to shake off whatever rust he has from being on the shelf for a couple weeks.  We'll see for an official word.

Between Pittsburgh and Anaheim, the 27-year old forward has 12 goals and 36 points in 71 games.  His time with the Penguins was somewhat underwhelming, but since the deal that brought him to Anaheim, things have picked up for him, if only slightly, but missing out on the last few weeks will hurt his overall numbers.

The week-to-week prognosis means that his projected games have come off of Brenda & Seward's totals for this week, at the very least, and their 6-point deficit for 1st place is now becoming quite the hill to climb, with bodies falling off the active roster a little quicker than desired.  They have 32 games left, heading into Tuesday, while Jeremy's team is up at 35 games this week.  Still close, but they still have ground to make up.
