I don't know about depth perception, but my guess is also that they choose yellow for visual reasons. It contrasts well with black pucks and it's not white which means players can clearly see where the boards are.

The "easiness to follow the puck on TV" argument is good too, but with the advent of HD it's nowadays not that much a problem anymore so I'm not sure it matters anymore.
