November 28, 1987 Montreal Canadiens vs Winnipeg Jets. 7-3 win.
Late November, 1987 the Montreal Canadiens were in need of a goaltender when Brian Hayward was briefly sidelined with back spasms. Jocelyn Perreault was recalled from the Sherbrooke Canadiens to sit behind the legendary Patrick Roy. Hayward's health quickly improved and thus Perreault was returned to the AHL after a very brief stay in National Hockey League.
Jocelyn Perreault had an average junior career. He was signed by the Habs in October, 1986 after spending a season with College St. Laurent in Quebec. He attended the Habs 1986 training camp and was later assigned to the team's AHL club in Sherbrooke. In his second year with the Montreal organization Perreault shared the 1987/88 Harry "Hap" Holmes award with Vincent Riendeau as the goaltending pair with the lowest goals against average in the AHL. Perreault had a good season but was mostly relegated to backup duties behind future NHLer Riendeau. Perreault was not resigned by Montreal at the end of his award winning year.
In 1988 Perreault was signed by the Philadelphia Flyers with the intention of providing goaltending depth to their AHL squad. Late February, 1989 Perreault was recalled to the NHL team but only served as briefly a practice goalie with the Flyers. He was released by Philly prior to the 1989/90 season.
