Seravalli noted in a post on X that the deal with the Oilers will be near the NHL's minimum wage and that it hasn't been confirmed yet. He also said that Perry's been training to get back into game shape.

The insider also shared that the Rangers, Lightning and Panthers were among the teams who were in the running to get the veteran.

"Decision coming soon for Corey Perry, but nothing done yet between Perry and #Oilers. Certainly trending.

It's been an exhaustive process - both in due diligence and fit - involving suitors like #FlaPanthers, #NYR, #GoBolts, and others.

Expect a deal near league min $.

If it is Edmonton, and it looks like it is, you could see him in their lineup as soon as this week.

Perry has been skating and training and can play his way back into game shape.

#Oilers have a bye week break and after All-Star, they don't play again until Feb. 6."


In Edmonton, Perry would be a major acquisition to an already talented roster. The team has been on fire lately, winning their last 13 games.

Perry could provide a lot to the Oilers in their quest to get back on top after their bad season start.
