FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Perlini, a product of Sault Ste. Marie, ON, was dominant during the month. The left winger tore up the score sheet, recording nine goals and 23 points in just 11 games. Perlini’s offensive outburst was punctuated by a three-goal, five-point night at the expense of the Owen Sound Attack on October 10th. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound also recorded at least a point in each of Niagara’s 11 games in the month.
“Perlini is a highly skilled player who is one of the best skaters in his draft year,” Future Considerations OHL head scout Jedd Jones said. “His big frame and puck skills make him hard to contain in the offensive zone. He is a dynamic player with a high hockey IQ. He is a threat to score every time he is on the ice.”
Perlini’s meteoric rise saw him jump from 50th in Future Considerations’ October ranking to 11th in November. In all, Perlini has 13 goals and 29 points in 17 games this season.
Also considered for the award was Conner Bleackley of the Red Deer Rebels and Nikolaj Ehlers of the Halifax Mooseheads. Bleackley recorded seven goals and 14 points in 11 games for Red Deer while Ehlers had four goals and 17 points in 13 games for Halifax.
