Prospect Update: Jack Perbix
By Thomas Harrington
A fourth-round pick from last summer, right-winger Jack Perbix completed his final season of USHL hockey this past season and will play in the NCAA this coming season.
In Perbix’s final season in the USHL, he played for both the Green Bay Gamblers and the Des Moines Buccaneers. With the Gamblers, Perbix played in 43 games and scored nine goals and 37 points. He was traded to the Buccaneers during the season and scored three goals and 12 points. In Des Moines, Perbix joined fellow Anaheim prospect Roman Durny. In the playoffs, Perbix played in five games and recorded one assist.
This coming season, Perbix will start his college career at the University of Minnesota. As a freshman, not much will be expected from him this season. What I would like to see from him is to just play as much hockey as possible. Perbix does have a decent amount of offensive ability, so I would like to see him score some points in his freshman season. The biggest issue is that freshmen rarely get premiere ice time in the NCAA. If he can break through and have an impact in Minnesota’s lineup, that would be an amazing season for him, but I’ll be happy with him having a solid freshman season.

With Perbix’s NCAA career just beginning, he’s probably several years away from making his way to the NHL. Depending on how he develops, I expect him to spend at least the next two years playing college hockey, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he spent all four. Right now, Anaheim is fairly deep at right-wing in the NHL and can afford to be patient with their prospects and let them develop at their own pace. Hopefully, Perbix can become one of Minnesota’s better scorers over the next few years. If he can do that, he’ll likely join the Gulls in two or three years, and then have a shot at Anaheim’s roster a year after that.
Perbix is currently unsigned and will remain that way until the Ducks decide he is ready to turn pro. Anaheim will control his rights until the summer of 2023. If he’s not signed by then, he’ll become a free agent and can sign wherever he wants to. However, the Gulls could still sign him, as Brent Gates, Jr. and Steven Ruggiero both recently did once their college careers came to an end.
The next prospect update will be on Roman Durny.
