Washington Capitals sign Mathieu Perreault


(Toni L. Sandys/WASHINGTON POST)

Perreault, 23, played a career-high 35 NHL games with the Capitals during the 2010-11 regular season, recording seven goals and seven assists. The quick-footed yet undersized Perreault (5-10, 174) regularly made an impact any time he was recalled to Washington last season but continued to struggle with consistency during those stints.

In Hershey last year, Perreault posted 11 goals and 35 points in 34 AHL regular season games.

Earlier this week at the Capitals’ development camp, Coach Bruce Boudreau said he anticipated that Perreault would likely compete with Mattias Sjogren and Cody Eakin for a spot on the NHL roster this season.

Eakin’s “in tough in that group too. You’ve got Mattias Sjogren, the same thing, and Mathieu Perreault I’m sure wants full-time work in this situation,” Boudreau said. “So it will make an interesting battle in training camp. It will make an interesting battle in training camp.”
