ALHAMBRA, IL-- After hearing little news for the longest time regarding David Perron's status, Blues fans were surprised by the news that Perron would be returning to the Blues.
Perron missed the final 72 games last year after taking a blindside hit that was delivered by San Jose Shark's forward Joe Thornton. Ever since then fans have been wondering if/when Perron would be back.
Perron had his ups and downs over the course of the concussion, but he never thought of it being a career ending injury.
"If you know my path to the NHL, it’s different than most guys. I’ve had my back to the wall many times before that point."
Now keep in mind that Perron wont be returning to the lineup for quite some time. Personally I wouldn't expect to see him back until late November or early December...But hey, at least he's back to training.
Perron takes his baseline test next week, and if he passes it, he can start working out doing the little things and working his way up slowly until eventually he is able to practice with the team.
Perron has been performing light exercises for the past 3-4 weeks without experiencing any major concussion symptoms.
