CHICAGO — Chicago Steel forward Jayden Perron grew up in Winnipeg, where battles on the outdoor rink with his older brother helped shape him into the player he is today.

“I got started in hockey because my brother was playing,” said Perron. “I think that and looking up to him is how I got into the game. I looked up to him as a hockey player and also a person.”

Perron spent most of his time prior to joining the Steel playing youth hockey with the Winnipeg Warriors, followed by the Winnipeg Bruins and Sioux Falls Power. However, it was the battles on the outdoor rink back home that really helped shape him into who he is today.

“Him (Perron’s brother) beating up on me out there I think that played a big part of who I am and I’m very thankful for that.”
