David Perron assisted on two goals in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks. Perron picked up both of his assists in the second period, passing out helpers on goals by Nick Leddy and Ryan O'Reilly. Overall this season, the veteran forward has posted 23 goals and 46 assists in 52 games. He has offered a solid bench option for fantasy managers in most formats during the 2021-22 campaign.
Edmonton Oilers DFS Spin
Connor McDavid scored a goal and assisted on another in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the L.A. Kings. While McDavid did not go off for huge numbers on Wednesday, his contributions were crucial to setting the flow of the game before Edmonton eventually pulled out the win in overtime. McDavid assisted on Cody Ceci seven-plus minutes into the first period, then came around for a goal of his own against Jonathan Quick about five minutes into the second period. McDavid's goal pushed the Oilers to a very short-lived 3-1 lead, one which the Kings would wipe away in the span of about a minute. Last laughs for Edmonton, of course, as the team ultimately prevailed in shootout play. McDavid has played to reputation this season, rolling up 37 goals and an even 100 points across 67 games played. The star forward has an 11-game point streak working after Wednesday's win. In that span, he has posted multiple points nine times.
