A graduate of the Quebec Junior Hockey League's Trois-Rivieres Reds, Perreault spent three seasons in the QJHL where he was First Team All-Star in 1950 and again in 1951 before signing as a free agent with the American Hockey League's Providence Reds. The Trois-Rivieres native spent one full season in Providence, before being dealt to Montreal after only a handful of games into his second year with the Reds. After being acquired by Montreal, Perreault was assigned to the Quebec Major Hockey League's Sherbrooke Saints.

In 1953-54, Perreault joined the Quebec Hockey League's Montreal Royals before joining the QHL Shawinigan Cataractes the following year. In his first year with the Cataractes, Perreault captured QHL First Team All-Star honors and won the Vezina Memorial Trophy as top goaltender in the before making his NHL debut the following year.

Perreault spent the majority 1955-56 season in Shawinigan before being promoted to replace an injured Jacques Plante. In his first NHL game, Perreault shut out the Chicago Black Hawks (5-0) and played a total of six games with the Canadiens before he was sent back to Shawinigan where he was a QHL Second Team All-Star.

In 1956-57, Perreault split his season with Shawinigan and the AHL's Rochester Americans before being claimed by Detroit (Hershey-AHL) in the 1957 Inter-League Draft. Even though Detroit had claimed him, Perreault was assigned to the AHL's Hershey Bears where he was an AHL Second Team All-Star.

The better part of Perreault's 1958-59 season was spent in Hershey where he captured the 1959 Calder Cup and for a second consecutive season was an AHL Second Team All-Star. Perreault also captured the Hap Holmes Memorial Award (fewest goals against-AHL) and was promoted to Detroit to replace an injured Terry Sawchuk, playing in three games with Detroit before he was sent back to Hershey. In those three years, Perreault for a third time in his career was recognized as an AHL Second Team All-Star.

Prior to the 1962-63 season, the Detroit Red Wings traded Perreault to the Boston Bruins where he played in a career high 22 games before being traded in the off-season to the Western Hockey League's San Francisco Seals. Perreault spent two seasons with the Seals before being claimed by Toronto (Victoria-WHL) from Boston in the 1965 reverse draft.

From 1965-66 to 1968-69 Perreault was a member of the Rochester Americans where he was for a fourth time an AHL Second Team All-Star in 1968 and for a second time the recipient of the Hap Holmes Memorial Award. Perreault had his rights transferred to Vancouver of the WHL after the WHL club purchased the Rochester franchise prior to the 1968-69 season.

Perreault joined the IHL's Des Moines Oak Leafs in 1969-70 where he shared the James Norris Memorial Trophy (fewest goals against-IHL) and spent the next three seasons with the Oak Leafs before being selected by World Hockey Association's Los Angeles Sharks in the 1972 WHA general player draft.

After only one season in Los Angeles, Perreault joined the Southern Hockey League's Greensboro Generals in 1973-74 where he ended his playing career. Throughout his NHL career, Bob Perreault played in 31 games.
