Edmonton Oilers right wing Corey Perry is expected to make his team debut in Saturday's clash with Nashville. The veteran has practiced on the third line after inking a one-year, $775,700 contract on Monday. Perry should also feature on the second power-play unit as the Oilers go for a 16th consecutive win. Even at 38, Perry was effective for the Blackhawks early in the campaign before his contract was terminated for "unacceptable" behavior. He had four goals and five assists in 16 games with the team.
Veteran winger Corey Perry is set to sign a contract with the Edmonton Oilers until the end of the season. The 38-year-old has been a free agent since late November, when the Chicago Blackhawks terminated his contract for violating club policies. Perry joined the Blackhawks in the summer following a two-year sting with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He scored four goals for the team in 16 games and had nine points. Perry's best days are long gone, but he's still capable of providing some offense and will be an intriguing pickup for a streaking Oilers team that has just set a new NHL record for Canadian teams with 13 consecutive wins.
Free-agent forward Corey Perry and the Toronto Maple Leafs reportedly have a mutual interest in signing a contract. The veteran had his contract terminated after 16 games this season with the Chicago Blackhawks for what was referred to as conduct detrimental to the team. Perry became eligible to sign an NHL contract after meeting with commissioner Gary Bettman on Wednesday. The 2010-2011 Hart Trophy winner tallied four goals and nine points across his brief stint with the Blackhawks this season but has remained a productive bottom-six forward at the age of 38. He tallied 19 goals as recently as the 2021-22 season and also had 40 points in that campaign. He would likely spend time on the second power-play unit should he and the Maple Leafs agree to a deal.
The Chicago Blackhawks have officially terminated the contract of veteran forward Corey Perry after he was unclaimed off waivers over the last 24 hours. The Blackhawks confirmed Perry's absence was due to unacceptable behavior off of the ice but it's still unknown exactly what took place. Nonetheless, Perry is now a free agent free to sign with any NHL club. Additionally, he has the right to file a grievance with the National Hockey League Players' Association, a filing that would need to come within the next 60 days. The former Rocket Richard and Hart Trophy winner registered four goals and nine points across 16 games in his brief Blackhawks tenure.
