From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jean Perron (b. October 5, 1946 in Saint-Isidore-d'Auckland, Quebec) was a head coach for the National Hockey League Montreal Canadiens and Quebec Nordiques. Perron coached the Habs for three seasons, and led them to a Stanley Cup in 1986. He was the last rookie coach to win the Stanley Cup until Dan Bylsma achieved the same feat in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. In Quebec City, he led the Nordiques for one season, 1988. He also coached in the AHL with the Manitoba Moose and in the IHL with the San Francisco Spiders.

At the end of his coaching career, Perron became a hockey analyst for different media in Quebec and appeared regularly on TQS's sports debates show 110%. He was often mocked for his incorrect use of proverbs and idioms and a book, Les Perronismes supposedly listing his most famous linguistic faux-pas was published in 2001. Perron sued the authors.[citation needed]

In 2004 Perron was named the coach of the Under 18 national hockey team and senior national team of Israel. He has since led both teams to new heights with Israel being promoted to Division I IIHF world championships for one year and the U18 team being promoted to Division II.
