Blackhawks and Oilers Launch Serious Investigation on Corey Perry

Published January 22, 2024 at 12:15
After parting ways with the Chicago Blackhawks, Corey Perry found himself at the center of rumors regarding the incident that led to the termination of his contract.

While the details of the incident remain undisclosed to the public, it appears minor enough that the NHLPA has filed a grievance against the termination, swiftly approved by Commissioner Gary Bettman, allowing Perry to join another team.

In the case of the Edmonton Oilers, they conducted their own investigation into the Perry incident, likely when he became available after the Blackhawks termination.

According to TSN's Ryan Rishaug, the Oilers diligently looked into the Chicago incident and Perry's past to ensure a thorough understanding of any potential issues. Rishaug noted that the Oilers collaborated with the NHL and the Blackhawks during this informal investigation.

The fact that the Oilers proceeded with signing Perry suggests that their inquiry raised no significant concerns, providing confidence in Perry's return to the NHL.

The results of this investigation might remain undisclosed, leaving fans with speculation about the exact nature of the Chicago incident.

On the ice, Perry is expected to be a valuable addition to the Oilers. At 38 years old, he brings effective offensive skills, finishing ability, toughness, and a renowned pest presence to the team. Perry's 16-game stint with the Blackhawks this year saw him score 4 goals and 9 points.
