Corey Perry faces a critical decision as the clock ticks down to the end of January. In less than a month, Perry must choose whether to file a grievance with the NHLPA for wrongful termination by the Chicago Blackhawks.

The upcoming dates that hold immense importance for Perry are January 28th, the final day for the NHLPA to officially file a grievance for his contract termination against the Chicago Blackhawks, and March 8th, the deadline for Perry to sign a new contract if he wishes to participate in the playoffs.

Regardless of his decision on the grievance, Perry has just over a month to secure a contract with another team, keeping alive his dream of pursuing another Stanley Cup.

"I've written before that the NHLPA did not contest Patrik Berglund's contract termination from Buffalo in 2018 because the player wanted no part of it. Don't know what Corey Perry's decision will be, but there definitely is a push for the union to grieve even if Perry declines. I don't know exact details and have no desire to minimize anything, but there are strong feelings the NHLPA cannot allow this precedent." - Elliotte Friedman



Elliotte Friedman notes the NHLPA's push for a grievance, emphasizing the need to prevent any unsettling precedent in player contract terminations.

Perry's choice will play a significant role in shaping his future in the NHL, adding an extra layer of suspense to this unfolding drama.
