Coach Maurice: The selection of Hellebuyck and Scheifele as All-Stars. Whether it means something to a player to be selected. How he managed today with his players. Will Mathieu Perreault be a player tomorrow?
Coach Maurice on veteran Mathieu Perreault who skated in a regular jersey and whether he would be a player tomorrow “For him to come off IR we wait ’til the last minute. We’ll get him through the morning skate tomorrow and make that decision but he’s feeling strong.”
