Corey Perry Takes Indefinite Leave from Blackhawks

In a surprising turn of events, Corey Perry, a key signing for the Chicago Blackhawks this offseason, will be away from the team 'for the foreseeable future.' The announcement comes directly from Blackhawks GM Kyle Davidson, emphasizing that it is a team decision and not initiated by Perry himself.

Kyle Davidson has 'no update' on Corey Perry. Says he'll be away from the team for the foreseeable future. Davidson does say it's the team's decision for Perry to be away from the team, not Perry's.




The Blackhawks inked Perry to a one-year, $4 million contract in the hopes of bringing a veteran presence to guide the young talents, especially star prospect Connor Bedard, as the team undergoes a rebuilding phase. Perry has contributed with 4 goals and 9 points in the 16 games he has played so far this season.

The situation took an unexpected twist when Perry was suddenly scratched as a healthy scratch just moments before a game against the Blue Jackets. The team cited it as an 'organizational decision,' leaving fans and media puzzled. The following day, Perry was notably absent from practice, and since then, there have been no sightings of him.

The Blackhawks' head coach has maintained secrecy around the matter, refusing to provide any details or answer questions, fueling speculation that there might be legal implications involved.


Despite the lack of transparency, GM Kyle Davidson has clarified that it is entirely a team decision to keep Perry away. The nature of this decision remains shrouded in mystery, leaving fans and the hockey community eagerly awaiting further updates on this unusual and enigmatic development.
