25 Daniel Perigo
6'10, 185 lbs.
Daniel Perigo is this week's Bearcat-of-the-Week.
The third-year forward's absence from the lineup had been noticeable and his return last week was welcomed.
Last weekend Perigo scored two goals to lead the Bearcats to a convincing 7-1 win over the Ramblers in Amherst. In his 14 games coming into the week, he's scored six goals and assisted on two others. It's always good to get that veteran leadership injected into the lineup.
He got his hockey start in the Truro and Area Minor Hockey Association and worked his way through the ranks to the completion of two years with the Truro Kwik Kopy Bearcats bantam AAA team.
Next up was a two-year run with the Pictou County Weeks Midgets, where he honed his offensive skills while captaining the 2010-11 team.
A 2011 draft pick by the PEI Rocket and a territorial by the Truro Bearcats, he quickly adjusted to the junior game. Deceptive speed and a physical component make him a valued member of the team.
