Perreault scored seven goals and eight assists in a 48-game regular season, which was cut short by an upper-body injury he sustained in January. It is supposed to be banned.
The Jets are besieged by injuries. Mark Scheifele is absent with a leg injury, Patrik Laine with a wrist and Mason Appleton with an undisclosed illness. Earlier in the same game, defender Tucker Poolman was injured blocking a shot with his face but returned to end the game in a face shield full of blood.
After losing 6-2 to the Flames on Tuesday, the Jets are now trailing in the two-to-one series.
