Corey Perry returns to the NHL

Updated: Jan 10

Following his contract termination with the Chicago Blackhawks back in November, it's been reported that Corey Perry is eligible for a return to the NHL.

Perry had his contract terminated due to "Unacceptable Conduct", while the Blackhawks GM did not specify the incident, he did confirm that all rumors surrounding Corey at the time were false, and that it did not include any players, or their families.

Now, more than a month later, Perry is eligible to return to the NHL after meeting with Gary Bettman, reports Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

Perry released an apology, admitting his “behaviour was inappropriate and wrong,” adding that he would work with experts to “discuss his struggles with alcohol.”

“I would like to sincerely apologize to the entire Chicago Blackhawks organization, including ownership, management, coaches, trainers, employees, and my teammates. I would also like to apologize to my fans, and my family. I am embarrassed and have let you all down."

Perry, 38, is now an Unrestricted Free-Agent and is eligible to sign with any team that may be interested in the veteran forward.

In 16 games with Chicago, Perry scored 4 goals and had 9 points.
