BREAKING: The Chicago Blackhawks Announce an Expensive Signing

Published July 1, 2023 at 1:41

In a flurry of off-season activity, the Chicago Blackhawks have been actively bolstering their roster by bringing in seasoned players to complement the rising NHL star, Connor Bedard. Fresh off the heels of acquiring Nick Foligno from the Boston Bruins, the Blackhawks have now secured the services of veteran forward Corey Perry.

According to reports from Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, Perry has agreed to a lucrative one-year contract in the range of $4 million, mirroring Foligno's deal.

This marks Perry's fourth team in the past five years, following his 14-year tenure with the Anaheim Ducks. With a Stanley Cup victory in 2007 and three Cup Final appearances in recent years, Perry brings invaluable experience to Chicago.

At 38 years old, Perry is set to receive a substantial salary increase compared to his previous contracts. After completing a two-year, $2,000,000 deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning, he now joins the Blackhawks in pursuit of further success on the ice.
