YANIC PERREAULT HAD NO EQUAL WHEN IT CAME TO WINNING KEY FACEOFFS.

Considered one of the NHL’s top – if not the best – faceoff specialists over the course of his career, Yanic Perreault was also a constant threat around his opponent’s net. A powerful wrist shot ripping into the top of the net became his calling card.

The Sherbrooke native had an outstanding junior career, totaling 400 points in three seasons with the Trois-Rivieres Draveurs, including a career-high 185 points in 1990-91. Drafted 47th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the wake of that dream season, he continued to produce offensively in his professional debut, notching 276 points over the course of three seasons with the AHL’s St. John’s Maple Leafs.

Traded to Los Angeles in June 1994, Perreault soon became a regular in the Kings’ lineup. After three seasons in California, Perreault returned to Toronto in 1999. In the summer of 2001, the Canadiens were looking to support Saku Koivu’s offense following the departure of Trevor Linden, and the team signed Perreault as a free agent.

A few weeks later, Koivu was diagnosed with cancer. Perreault took the torch in the captain’s absence, scoring 27 goals and adding 56 assists to lead the Habs to the playoffs. He scored crucial goals in the first round against Boston, helping the Canadiens advance to the second round, where they fell to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Perreault continued to produce over the next two seasons, posting 46 and 31 points, respectively. Following the 2004 lockout, Perreault joined the Nashville Predators, followed by the Phoenix Coyotes. He most recently suited up for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2007-08.
