In yesterday's pre-game report, I noted the uptick in David Perron's shots on goal rate:
Perron put 6 more shots on goal against the Coyotes, his third consecutive six-shot performance. In his twelve games as a member of the Oilers, Perron has 44 shots on goal. I compared that 12-game stretch against every other 12 games in his career in the graph below:

The 44 shots thus far represent a career high in any previous twelve games in the NHL, with the previous high at 39 in 2009-10. Perron is reaping the benefits of playing with Ales Hemsky, as the two have been on the plus side of 54% of Corsi events on the ice together, whereas Perron has a 44% Corsi rating away from Hemsky.
