#6: David Perron

This is another case of if he hadn’t missed so many games he could be way higher on this list.  Perron missed the first 25 games of the season while recovering from post concussion symptoms from a hit in November of last season from Joe Thornton.  Since his return, Perron has proven that he hasnt missed a beat.  Perron is averaging nearly a point per game since his return and if he keeps up that pace for the remainder of the season he can still set a career high in points, breaking his personal best of 50 set in his 2nd NHL season.

In the short time he has been back, Perron has been a guy that has made the people around him better.  He was inserted to the second line with Patrik Berglund and Chris Stewart who were both struggling and the 3 of them have been great in the last 10 plus games.  Perron is going to keep progressing the more he plays and I think he could still very easily record 40-50 points this season and make a run of the team lead if he keeps up the pace he is on.
