Rumor: Western Canadian Team Heavily Interested in Signing Corey Perry

Forward Corey Perry is attracting interest in the NHL, raising the prospect of a comeback this season.

His action, which led to the termination of his contract in Chicago, does not appear to be a definitive end to his career.

Several teams, including the Oilers, are interested in him. Oilers general manager Ken Holland may consider talking to Perry's agent Pat Morris, as he did with Evander Kane.

"We can assume that Ken Holland will inquire about the forward. If Holland took the risk of signing Evander Kane, who had a lot of problems off the ice, he probably wouldn't mind talking to Pat Morris, Perry's agent. The acquisition of Kane was a home run on Holland's part."

Perry, well-liked in Montreal and with a good relationship with young players like Cole Caufield, could be a valuable acquisition for the Oilers, and Holland seems willing to explore this option.

Perry has until March 8 to sign a new deal to make the playoffs.
