Perry Accepts His Hart Trophy

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

It is no secret that Corey Perry has often let his emotions get in the way throughout his hockey career and that might never change.

But as he tried to give a short thank-you speech upon winning the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player Wednesday night, Perry couldn’t keep from getting choked up as the words came out.

It was a heartfelt moment for a player who isn’t afraid to rub someone the wrong way on the ice.

“I’m an emotional person,” Perry said at the league’s awards ceremony at the Palms Casino Resort. “It’s like going back when we won the Stanley Cup. I cried after that. That’s just the person I am.”
