Caps Sign Perreault

The Caps today announced that they’ve signed center Mathieu Perreault to a three-year, entry level deal beginning next season.

Perreault, 20, was the most valuable player in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) in 2006-07 and led the QMJHL in scoring this year. A 5’9”, 166-pound native of Drummondville, Quebec, Perreault recorded 114 points (34 goals, 80 assists) in 65 games for Acadie-Bathurst in 2007-08, his second consecutive 100-point season. He led the Titan to a third-place finish in the East Division and a berth in the playoffs, where they are currently tied in the first round, two games apiece, with St. John’s.

Perreault led the QMJHL in assists in 2007-08 and established an Acadie-Bathurst club record with a 27-game point-scoring streak. He was a two-time QMJHL Offensive Player of the Week and the league’s Player of the Month in March.

Perreault was Washington’s sixth-round choice, 177th overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

    He slipped to the 6th round because (1) he was listed at about listed at 5’8”, 151 at the time of the draft and (2) in his draft year he scored 18 goals and 34 assists in 62 games, which aren’t exactly eye popping numbers.
