Pierre-Luc Dubois revealed Mathieu Perreault's recipe for success

After playing the last seven seasons with the Winnipeg Jets, Mathieu Perreault decided that a change of scenery was necessary for his career. He decided to come back home by signing with the Montreal Canadiens for one season, for a value of $950,000.

This will be a big loss for the Winnipeg Jets, considering the impact Perreault had with his former team. He is a very versatile forward, with excellent leadership, at least, that's what his good friend Pierre-Luc Dubois confided in an interview with Jean-Christophe Bertrand of RDS.


"He helped me a lot when I arrived, as he was the first person I talked to. It will be a big loss for the Jets. He's a player who can play on the power play, on the fourth, third or even second three if the team needs to score goals. It's a big loss for us," he added.

Dubois also noted that Mathieu Perreault had a secret weapon when he played against the Habs. He was always motivated and always played well against his childhood team, like most Quebecers. He will have the opportunity to play 41 games at the Bell Centre this season, a situation that will likely motivate Perreault considerably.

"He's a very good player. He can do everything on the ice. He played against the Habs and we thought he always played well at the Bell Centre. Now he's going to play 41 games a year there. I hope every game is going to be like that this year for him."

Just playing for the Habs must be a huge motivation for Perreault. His best offensive years are behind him, certainly, he will clearly help the organization's youth in their development, thanks to his experience. A role that should appeal to the Canadiens' new number 85.
