David Perron is feeling awfully good about getting back to action

David Perron has been out of action since last November 4 thanks to a concussion received from a monster hit by Joe Thornton. Perron’s concussion recovery has gone through the motions but he tells Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he’s feeling confident about getting back very soon.

Perron has gotten back to some action with the team and he hasn’t suffered any setbacks to this point. We all know how tenuous concussion recovery is after getting a crash-course in it thanks to Sidney Crosby, but Perron’s progress shows that even the most brutal of hits can have a light at the end of the tunnel.

If Perron can get back to action and do what he was starting to show the Blues he could do before, the young and talented Blues will get a huge lift from his presence and his abilities. With David Backes and Chris Stewart already both young and gifted power forwards, Perron getting back in the mix with them would allow St. Louis to roll with three awfully strong lines.

    As a huge Blues fan it’s good to know Davids coming back and feeling good. It’s really scarry seeing him.out for almost a year. It will be really good for our offense though it dosen’t really need muchhelp since we had six 20 goal scorers. This kid has amazing hands and had the goal of the year a few years ago and is waiting to break out.
