Corey Perry is one of the toughest and most respected players in the NHL right now, but after drama followed him to Chicago, his season was potentially ended.

Corey Perry meets with Bettman, free to return

Chicago Blackhawks GM Kyle Davidson revealed that Perry «engaged in conduct that is unacceptable, and in violation of both the terms of his standard player's contract and the Blackhawks' internal policies intended to promote professional and safe work environments", thus terminating him quickly.

When no team picked him up, the thought for many was that his season was officially ended, but now, that is definitely not the case.

In his latest piece, NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman revealed that Perry recently met with Commissioner Gary Bettman, and the result of that meeting was Perry being cleared to return in 2023-24.

We may never know the full details of what happened in Chicago with Perry, but it appears that Bettman believes he deserves to return to the NHL, so now we wait and see if he gets picked up.
