Last season, Perkins spent his first season with the University of Minnesota-Duluth, the 20-year-old had 15 points (6G-9A) in 35 games.  

During the 2021-22 campaign, the Balgonie product had 59 points (23G-36A) in 57 games with the Broncos. He added four points (1G-3A) in 11 games during the playoffs.
