Corey Perry's newfound eligibility to return in the NHL has sparked interest among several top teams, despite his recent contract termination with the Chicago Blackhawks.

"Can confirm that Corey Perry is eligible to sign with any NHL team as a free agent after having his contract terminated by the #blackhawks on Nov. 30.


He would need to sign by the March 8 trade deadline in order to be eligible for this year's playoffs."


Elliotte Friedman offered insights, saying that Perry's termination probably wouldn't have happened if he had played for any other teams in the League.

"Interesting part on Elliott Friedman's 32TP.

«There is definitely a feeling here that if this had happened on any other team (besides the Chicago Blackhawks) it might not have led to a contract termination» (regarding Corey Perry's terminated contract with the Hawks)"


The Blackhawks, who dealt with many controversies over the years, have distanced themselves from anything that could bring trouble. This includes Perry, despite his qualities on the ice.

However, a new rumour suggests that Perry still generates a lot of interest across the NHL.

Three Top-Contending Teams Showing Interest in Perry

Corey Perry's playoff experience is among the greatest in the NHL. In the past four years, he reached the Finals three times, with the Dallas Stars, Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning.

The latest rumor states that three top teams are in on Perry to help them in the playoffs: the Maple Leafs, Oilers and Lightning.

"Some news concerning Perry I'm hearing that it's down to Toronto, Edmonton, and Tampa"


All these teams could significantly benefit from Perry's expertise, more so if he's available at an interesting price.

The Ontario native has until the trade deadline on March 8th to sign with a team. We can't wait to see where he ends up signing.

Do you think Perry will sign a contract in the NHL before March 8th?
