The son of a former Canadien will play his first NHL game on Saturday night

Yanic Perreault spent 14 years in the National Hockey League, for a total of 859 games, including 224 with the Montreal Canadiens. Perreault was one of the best in his profession in the faceoff circle, a true expert. He was also a very honest scorer, scoring no less than 20 goals seven times in his career.

That said, Perreault has a son named Jacob, who was selected by the Anaheim Ducks at the 27th rank of the 2020 draft. Jacob Perreault is a formidable marksman, who scored 30 and 39 goals (in only 57 games) respectively during his two campaigns with the Sarnia Sting.

The young player has scored 18 points this year in 23 games, led by Joël Bouchard with the San Diego Gulls. Then, tonight, as the Ducks compete against the New York Rangers, the youngster will play his first game in the NHL.

The most beautiful of all, Perreault should complete the excellent duo of Sonny Milano and Trevor Zegras. The Ducks are currently deprived of Ryan Getzlaf, Adam Henrique and Max Jones.

Good luck, Jacob!
