42 Alexander Perezhogin

Perezhogin highlight from Wednesdays game:

Perez rushing for the puck, A flyer player coming in on his left side racing him, just as they get near the puck Perezhogin gives him a shove with his body to push him away and take the puck. Personally, I thought the other guy was going to level Perezhogin but he fought him all the way.

I like seeing Perez fighting for the puck and honeslty think being on the 3rd line with Johnson and Bonk is a good expereince for him.

He certainly doesn't look out of place with Johnson and Bonk out there. He's made some great defensive plays out there which is really impressive and I like the way he controls the puck down low... his style is not without reminding me of a mini-Kovalev. That must be the influence his mentor has on him!

I think he is plying even better than Kovy right now. Good to see the playoffs Perez!

He looks at ease out there, it's awesome to see our boys really become men, no doubt he'll be a great NHL player one day.

And I hope it's with us!:D

He's impressed me a lot lately. Strong on the forecheck, and lot better with the puck, aggressive in one-on-one battles along the boards, great speed.

It looks like he's actually having fun again, back like when he played with Koivu and Kovalev for the first time.

I hope he can keep it up, because he's a definite threat on that third line.

Yeah, he is having fun again. And the best part is, he's developed more in three games than he did all of last year playing with Kovalev and the rest of the boys. We need to keep Bonk and Johnson, those to players are amazing. They've taken Perezhogin under their wing and he's starting play like them (with amazing offensive upside). Perezhogin is going to be a great player in a few years.

I hated Perezhogin last year because he reminded me so much of Mike Riberio and Alex Kovalev mixed together. Lazy, didn't seem to care, tried to be too fancy. Whereas this year, he's turned into the kinda player I love. Hardworking, never give up, forechecking, backchecking, taking the body anywhere on the ice, yet still being able to provide offensive scoring chances.

Perezhogin is a better player this year and not because of his development last year, he's a better player because he has too amazing veterns on his line and he's learning from them, and they're two veterns that you'd want ever player to learn after.

If Perezhogin keeps playing like this, pucks are going to start going in eventually. The line looks great and they'll benefit from favourable matchups because of the focus opposing teams will place on the Koivu and Kovalev lines. We already know that Perezhogin has the talent -- now it's a question of developing his smarts, work ethic, and consistency, and this third line is a great place for him to blossom.

Everyone is so surprised with his physical play, but we saw it last year too, i mean he did end keith primeau's career... :D but yeah, definatly one of the bright spots in the lineup this yr, keep it up!

He was on the second PP against philly, I guess thats his reward for playing hard. I don't know if any noticed but in the second Perezhogan nailed Hatcher on the boards and bounced right off him. I love the fact that he will try to hit the biggest guy on the ice or anybody else for that matter.

Not a great pre season but the kid has answered the bell in games that count.He's playing with some zip out there and is certainly a standout in the early going.

As much as I disagreed with you a few minutes ago in another thread, I can't agree with you more on this one.

Your point about being like Ribeiro/Kovalev is a good one. One that is tough for me to admit, but it's good. In comparison, he's playing more like a guy with a heart of Saku than a guy with a heart of Ribeiro or Kovalev. And that says a lot.

As much as I wanted to see Bonk team up with Latendresse, management made a great decision in throwing Perezhogin in there. Hopefully he keeps up the good work, in time, his speed will give Bonk a lot more confidence (maybe like when he played with Havlat :D)

You can see Perry pushing hard and working out there. He will get there.

After a poor showing in camp he understands, now his talent will benefit from his hard work.

This guy is playing great - putting him on with Bonk and Johnson was a great move.

I work most nights and listen to the games on CJAD - the one thing that the announcers say over and over again is that Perezhogin's stats this season are 4 posts and 1 assist.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NO MORE POSTS - lets get the puck in the net!!!!

Yes, I agree. He's been outstanding so far, but a bit unlucky with the posts of course :D

You could see the potential last season but it now looks like he's putting it together. Good for him. I'm anxious to see the lines tomorrow at practice.

i cant see why he shouldnt get the chance, he's proven to be physical, tenacious in the corners, and keeps putting the moves on the defence and has also been letting loose some vicious wristers, he looked ready last year, he looks even more ready this year, and to suggest they wanted to send him back to hamilton after training camp, what a mistake that would have been.

This kid has been one of our most tenacious and energetic players all season; he's created a few great turnovers that led to goals this year, he's skating hard, back-checking, and digging in the corners. He's come close to finishing a few times. I hope he starts getting a little more ice-time in reward for his work.
