Perreault is a dynamic offensive weapon who uses his skill to find his way into scoring areas on the ice. The standout in Perreault’s game is his creativity and stickhandling ability. He has gifted hands and is regularly looking to challenge opposing defenders one-on-one with his skill to open up space off the rush or find his way through traffic with the puck on his stick. He is a volume shooter who rarely passes up opportunities to get the puck on net, often taking the looks that are presented to him while still being mostly disciplined in his shot selection. He does a good job of fighting his way into high-danger areas in the offensive zone, making himself available for passes to the slot from his teammates as well as opportunities at rebounds and deflections around the crease. He processes play with the puck on his stick in the mindset of a goal scorer, though he does possess capable playmaking ability with strong vision and reliable passing accuracy. Perreault is a fairly agile skater, though I believe his straightline speed could use some work, as his stride length and acceleration were fairly inconsistent and an added gear in terms of speed could open up even more offensive opportunities for him off of the rush. In future viewings, I would like to see Perreault continue to work on his skating and add more strength to his frame to both hold up against larger opponents as well as get more power behind his shot. At the moment, I would project Perreault as a potential top-six winger at the NHL level and is worthy of a pick in the top-30 of the 2023 draft.
