From Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
“You know that I can tell with David Perron … he wants it as bad as anybody in the NHL,” Blues President John Davidson said. “Now that he’s made the NHL, he wants to come back and prove that he can play at another level. The passion that that kid has is special.
Davidson was sitting next to Blues assistant GM Doug Armstrong this week and “Doug turned to me and said, ‘Boy, the puck really follows that kid, doesn’t it?’ That’s true. David’s got a long way to go yet, but he’s making every concerted effort possible to go to the next level, and I have a lot of respect for that.”

Perron was a pleasant surprise for the Blues at training camp last season and it looks like he hasn’t stopped impressing management during this summer. Expect the youngster to clip the 20 goal plateau this upcoming season.
