Around half of the game was spent with one team on the powerplay, and Perreault isn't on either PP unit nor does he kill penalties. Oates also went with only 11 forwards last night, so he was shuffling lines a fair bit. Perreault was one of the 2 forwards without a full time line, took a penalty, and was out of position during a Lightning goal. He didn't earn any ice time, and thus spent most of the game on the bench.

Assuming Oates sticks with lines similar to last night, Perreault will primarily be a 4th line energy player when everyone is healthy. He will have to compete with Johansson, Wolski, and Fehr to get a top six spot (Ovie, Nicky, Ribs, and Brouwer's spots seem secure).
