Corey Perry Signing Is Official In Dallas

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed right wing Corey Perry to a one-year, $1.5-million contract, plus an additional $1.75-million in performance-based incentives.

Perry, 34, recorded ten points (6-4=10) in 31 regular-season games played for Anaheim in 2018-19. His season began on Feb. 2, as he missed the first 51 games due to a knee injury. He did not miss a game after returning to the lineup.

Goodbye Corey Perry

from Mark Whicker of the LA Daily News,

Finally, those who doubted Corey Perry’s hockey future might be right.

It just took 14 seasons, four All-Star games and 372 goals.

They might not be right either.

The Ducks bought out Perry’s contract Wednesday. He had lost a step while the NHL had gained two. He wasn’t a first-line player anymore. Nobody inside the franchise could stomach watching him play on the fourth.

The quickest way to feel old is to watch Perry, 34, grow old, because he always played like Ryan Getzlaf’s rambunctious little brother. They were born six days apart, and Perry kept going where he didn’t belong, emerging with a goal, a welt and a smirk. That was his personal hat trick.

“People didn’t realize he was such a big guy,” said Sean O’Donnell, who played with and against Perry and shared that Stanley Cup in 2007. “But he had that baby face and that little head. He’d go to the net and stay there no matter what you did to him, and he’d figure out a way to score and you never knew how he did it.

“You loved him as a teammate because he would do anything to win. You didn’t like him as an opponent because he was a pain in the butt.”

Anyone Want Corey Perry?

via TSN,

The Anaheim Ducks are in the process of finalizing paperwork to buy out Corey Perrythis morning, according to TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli.

Perry is not expected to be placed on waivers due his no-movement clause. He has two years left on his deal with a cap hit of $8.6 million.

Last season, Perry had just 10 points in 31 games played with the Ducks last season. He is coming off meniscus and MCL injuries and missed the first five months of the season after knee injury. 

He was drafted by the Ducks in the first round (28th overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft. Perry won the Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007, and won the Hart and Rocket Richard trophies in 2011.

The Second Season For Corey Perry

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

To his Ducks teammates, Perry is referred to as “Worm” because of how he long has been able to slither his lanky, 6-foot-3 frame in and out of physical defenders for the coveted space around the net and create scoring chances. And often finish them.

To opponents and their fans, the winger has been called much worse, a good amount that cannot be printed and might make those not used to foul or unseemly language blush. It comes with the territory when he’s fighting for his on the ice, sometimes in sneaky – and, some would say, dirty – ways.

Another thing you could call Perry is Mr. Automatic. Forget about penciling him in for 30 goals each season. Go ahead and use ink. Address another area on the team.

But when the best-of-7 Western Conference first-round series begins Thursday night against Calgary, Perry finds himself looking at the postseason as one to find redemption. Redemption for past series that went unfulfilled and a 2016-17 regular season that never lived up to expectations.

Nineteen goals over 82 games. The fewest over a full 82-game season since getting 17 as a rookie, where he played in just 44 games with the Ducks. Players talk about the Stanley Cup playoffs as a new season and for Perry, that sentiment may not be any truer.

“This is where people make their names,” said Perry, who has hit the 30-goal mark six times and has 349 in all. “It’s a new season. Everybody starts fresh. There’s only 16 teams left and you want to be one of those 16 to start it off.”

A Not So Hot Return For Henrik Lundqvist And A Brendan Smith/Corey Perry Fight

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

If Henrik Lundqvist wanted to be tested in order to prepare for the playoffs upon returning from a seven-game absence covering nearly three weeks, The King surely was that here on Sunday in a 6-3 empty-net abetted defeat to the Ducks.

“It was a challenging game,” Lundqvist said with a wry smile after surrendering five goals on 33 shots in 58:37. “You hope for maybe a little easier game, but there are no easy games in this league.”

It is impossible for there to be an easy game with the Rangers making it as difficult as possible on themselves and their goaltender. Despite being tied 3-3 entering the third, the Blueshirts were guilty of a multitude of bleeps, bloopers and blunders in their decisions, puck-movement and coverage all night long.

“Too many guys brought their ‘C’ game and that’s not good enough,” coach Alain Vigneault said following the defeat that prevented the Rangers from clinching a playoff spot. “It was not an easy game for Hank, but if I know him the way everyone does, he’s going to get better.”

More Production Needed From Corey Perry And Ryan Getzlaf

from Jeff Miller of the OC Register,

Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf lead the Ducks with 16 points apiece. But Perry has only four goals and Getzlaf just one.

If you had known those players would have those goal totals 20 games into the season, would you have guessed the Ducks would be in a playoff position?

If you said no, I agree. If you said yes, you’re lying.

My working theory then was that this should be an encouraging sign for the Ducks, that, particularly given Perry’s tendency to score in bursts, good things almost certainly have to be coming once those two start producing goals.

My working theory, however, seemed about as appetizing to Ducks coach Randy Carlyle as a plate of cold leftover turkey gizzards.

“There’s no satisfaction in that,” Carlyle corrected. “It’s our responsibility to find a way to get those players going, to put them in situations where they can have some success.”

For his career, Perry has averaged a goal every 2.4 games, which means his scoring rate is about half of what would be normal for him.

Getzlaf is on pace to finish with 4.6 goals, a total that seems entirely unreasonable and not just because of how unlikely it is that he’ll score .6 of a goal.

Afternoon Line- Corey Perry

via Anaheim Ducks Twitter,

"I have memories and opportunities I wish I could have back. It was the way it kind of went that whole series, for me anyway."

"We laid it on the line in Game 7. A bounce here, a bounce there, it’s a different story. But we keep saying that..."

"This one probably hurts even more than the rest of them. You look at the team, what we overcame, it was a close-knit group."

Perry says Boudreau, "Has nothing do with what we did on the ice. We have to hold ourselves accountable. I think guys are doing that."

"We have to go out next year and prove ourselves all over again. It’s a clean slate, a new year. Hopefully we can rewrite the story."

No Excuses From Corey Perry

from Elliott Teaford of the OC Register,

He was the Ducks’ highest-paid player this season at $8.625million and he delivered with 34 regular-season goals, tops on the team. But he didn’t score a single goal during the Ducks’ seven-game loss to the Predators, chipping in four assists for his only points.

At game’s end, after the Ducks lost their fourth Game 7 at Honda Center in as many seasons, Perry sat in front of his locker in full uniform as a pack of reporters descended upon him. He spoke softly about his frustration and praised the Predators for their defensive effort against him.

“I’ve got no excuses, that’s the way it went,” he said. “They swarm and push you against the wall and pin you there. It’s tough. They play strong defensively. They’re a strong defensive team. They know how to box out and they did it all series.”

Of Game 7, Perry added, “It’s tough. It’s not the way we wanted to start, but the second and third periods I thought we threw everything at them. A bounce here, a bounce there, and it can be a different story.”

Allen offers ‘overreactions’ to early-season trends

Among the items that USA Today's Kevin Allen believes are overreactions levied far too early in the 2015-16 NHL season:

Coach Bruce Boudreau is on the hot seat in Anaheim C’mon folks. This is a parity league, and even quality teams struggle on occasion. You wouldn’t even pay attention to their 0-2-1 stretch if this was the middle of January. The Ducks are in a scoring slump, probably caused by players trying to find chemistry with new teammates. Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry don’t have a point. Do you think the NHL has magically discovered how to stop that duo after a decade of domination? The Ducks are a contender. They have the necessary ingredients to make it happen. Boudreau will be judged by what happens next spring, not what happens in the first three games of the season.

The 1-3 Penguins are already in a world of hurt Let’s take a step back here and remember that the three teams that have defeated the Penguins are a combined 11-1, including the white-hot Canadiens. We know that Crosby is eventually going to score plenty, and the Pittsburgh power play will likely end up as one of the league’s best. The Penguins have given up an average of two goals per game in the four games. They would be thrilled with that goals-against average  for an entire season. This is another team that is trying to figure out how to best use new personnel. It’s too early to assess where the Penguins are going this season.

Connor McDavid has been slow to adjust Now you understand why general manager Peter Chiarelli tried to tamp down the hype over this future superstar. Although McDavid has an overflowing amount of skill, he’s still an 18-year-old trying to find his way against the world’s best players. The lack of points (one goal) is not a shock to the Oilers. They understood that even budding superstars need time to sort out what works and what doesn’t. His point total will grow significantly as he gains experience. Don’t forget that he is not playing with a Stanley Cup contender. He is surrounded by players still exploring their own games. If you have watched McDavid in his first four games, you can see his potential dominance bubbling just below the surface. He always seems like he’s a half-second from a breakaway.

EA Sports predicts an Anaheim Ducks Cup win

From the Canadian Press:

The Stanley Cup is headed to Anaheim this season, according to a video game simulation of the NHL season.

EA Sports says its "NHL 16" simulation has the Ducks winning the Presidents' Trophy, symbolic of the best regular-season record, and then defeating the Montreal Canadiens in the Cup final. Anaheim forward Corey Perry claims the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

The Ducks defeat the Minnesota Wild in the Western Conference final while the Habs dispatch the Pittsburgh Penguins in the East final.

EA, which develops the hockey video game in suburban Vancouver, had the Los Angeles Kings winning the Cup last season in its pre-season simulation and the St. Louis Blues the year before that.

The new simulation has the Buffalo Sabres, who finished last in the 2014-15 standings, missing out on the playoffs by just two points. The Los Angeles Kings make it back to the post-season only to lose in seven games to the Calgary Flames in the first round.

Less May Be More For Corey Perry And Ryan Getzlaf

from Travis Yost of TSN,

The metamorphosis of the Anaheim Ducks from a top-heavy team with inconsistent firepower to a bona fide Stanley Cup contender under Bruce Boudreau has been one of the more exciting NHL developments in recent years.

There has been ample talk about how the organization has transitioned out of the treadmill of mediocrity. Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry garner a lot of attention and rightfully so. When they’re on their game, they form a top line that’s virtually unstoppable. Their newish head coach gets a lot of recognition too. I’ve written about Boudreau in the past, and why I think he’s one of the better coaches in the history of the game. Debate if you wish, but his track record is mint, and the team has flourished under his watchful eye.

But, between their high periods (a 2006 Stanley Cup, and present day), there was a lull. They still had that top echelon of talent, but little else to offer after that. And it manifested in their performance. From 2008 through 2012, the Ducks went as followed: eliminated in the semi-final, did not reach playoffs, eliminated in the quarter-final, and did not reach playoffs. It wasn’t a terrible run, but it’s probably not what you expect from a club who walks into every season with at least two of the league’s preeminent talents.

During those years, the team leaned heavily on the likes of Perry and Getzlaf more than any team probably should. Having them on the ice can be intoxicating, but the lack of firepower behind them was likely more of a driver of their usage (and perhaps over usage).

Mike Milbury On Corey Perry

via Eric Stephens tweets,

Milbury was apparently asked how he would stop Corey Perry. "If I were playing against Corey Perry, I’d probably want to hurt him in (1/2)

(more) some painful and permanent way. And I think most of the rest of the league feels the same way." (2/2)

via Helene Elliott tweets,

Perry on Milbury comment last night: "it's not something that's been taken lightly. If somebody said something about his kid that way (more)

How would he feel?" Milbury had said if he played vs Perry he would " want to hurt him in a painful and permanent way."

All Corey Perry

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Burnside: When did the idea come to you that you and Ryan were going to spend a lot of time together? Was there a moment where you were, 'Oh, this is the plan for us here.' That you two were sort of connected?

Perry: You never know what’s going to happen. But I think at that time they had a vision, they had a plan and a long-term plan on what was going to happen and where we were going to fit in this organization. We were excited when we came in. And we’ve pretty much been, everything you can think of, we’ve done together. It’s been a fun experience.

Burnside: That’s kind of an unusual thing. It is kind of a unique thing that’s gone on here. Can you imagine your life without Ryan Getzlaf, or if it had gone a different way?

Perry: I was almost in Edmonton. I remember that I was traded to Edmonton but then the whole Mike Comrie thing, Kevin Lowe thing went through and then I was back to the Anaheim Ducks. You always think about what could have happened if I did get traded, where my career would be right now, where I would and what would be going on. It’s fun to talk about but I’m glad I’m here.

Corey Perry And Ryan Getzlaf Have Their Eyes On The Cup

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

When the Ducks open their first-round Western Conference series against Winnipeg on Thursday night, Perry and Getzlaf will chase after the silver chalice for the sixth time.

“Times like this don’t come around too often,” Perry said. “We have a great team. But also we haven’t gotten out of the second round since we won in ’07. Those are tough things to swallow. You think it’s going to happen all the time.

“At the end of the day, you only get so many chances at this. You got to go out and you got to do it and you got to earn it. There’s no better time than now. That’s kind of what we’re thinking.”

The two are linked with this common thought – that this is their best look at putting a second Cup on their already envied resumes.

Getzlaf and Perry are big believers in the moves by Ducks general manager Bob Murray last summer – most notably trading for center Ryan Kesler – and feel that they’re better equipped to get through the Western Conference minefield.

In the captain’s mind, the difference is these Ducks have learned from past failures and respond better to adverse situations.

Video- Claude Julien Wanted Goalie Interference On Corey Perry’s Game-Tying Goal

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

The Bruins had their closers on the ice with Chris Kelly, Patrice Bergeron, Loui Eriksson, Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg playing in the final minute, but Corey Perry managed to tip a Ryan Getzlaf shot past Tuukka Rask for the game-tying score with 38.5 seconds remaining.

That led to the Getzlaf overtime game-winner in the 3-2 loss for the Black and Gold at TD Garden and a closer look at Perry’s third-period score for the game-tying goal. Both Perry and Matt Beleskey made “incidental contact” with Rask in the crease just before the game-tying redirection, and either player could have been called out on it.

Julien wanted a call at that crucial point in the game, but that isn't meant to be for this year's team.

“[It’s] really disappointing that the goal was allowed. There was, no doubt, goalie interference there and that’s why they talk about reviewing those kinds of goals and coaches’ challenges,” said Julien. “You can’t allow those kinds of goals. This was a big point we lost tonight on a missed call. Those are the things that are hard to swallow right now.”

Corey Perry Returned To Practice Today After Having A Case Of The Mumps

from Kyle Shohara of AnaheimDucks.com,

“I had the swollen jaw and the swelling in my face that led to headaches,” said Perry. “I had the body aches and fever, too. Those things weren’t fun.”

Perry admits he didn’t really know what the mumps were when the doctor told him the news, but knew he had to let the virus run its course. “I’ve learned more in the last week about it, but there’s really no medicine for it,” he said. “Sometimes the booster helps and sometimes it doesn’t, and vaccinations don’t always work. I had my shots as a kid.”

Along with swelling in the face and headaches, Perry says he ran a fever north of 100 degrees (102 at its highest) and experienced hot and cold sweats, but never experienced a loss of appetite. But during his stint in the hospital (three days and two nights), Perry says he didn’t do much.

“I had no energy to do anything,” he said. “My day consisted of the doctor coming in at seven o’clock in the morning, looking at me and then taking off, me going back to sleep, and then the doctor coming back in to draw blood.”

Although he didn’t rule out the weekend games on Saturday at Los Angeles and Sunday at Honda Center against Florida, Perry says he’ll need to regain strength before he returns to the lineup. “It’s going to take some time,” he said. “The body is a little weak. Hopefully I can do all the right steps to get ready. It’s mostly the lungs. Being weak is the most noticeable thing.”

It’s A Case Of The Mumps For Corey Perry And Francois Beauchemin

via Curtis Zupke at NHL.com,

Anaheim Ducks right wing Corey Perry has been cleared from a case of mumps but defenseman Francois Beauchemin still has the infection, Dr. Craig Milhouse, the Ducks' physician, said Wednesday.

Both players have been quarantined while their cases were diagnosed. Perry is no longer contagious and is expected to rejoin the Ducks soon. Beauchemin remains in a hospital getting intravenous fluids, a Ducks official said.

"He's better today, and we anticipate that he'll be even more improved [Thursday], after he gets IV fluids," Milhouse said.

The Ducks will have the rest of the players vaccinated, Milhouse said.

Milhouse said it is not known how the two got the infection but there have been cases of mumps in the Anaheim area and that the health department is involved.

Corey Perry’s Makeup

from Mark Masters of TSN,

Ryan Getzlaf breaks into a big grin when asked about the agitating antics of his longtime linemate Corey Perry.

"What? You want me to talk about that?" the Anaheim Ducks captain asks chuckling.

After some gentle prodding Getzlaf opens up.

"That's part of Perry's game. I mean, he's always going to play hard, play hard between the whistles and, you know, there's always a little extra stuff going on and it's stuff he's been doing his whole career. It's part of his makeup and things that fuel him to be a better player on the ice and I thought he was unbelievable [in Game 3]."

On the ice, Perry is in the middle of everything. Rarely will a shift go by without him getting engaged physically with someone.

"He is what he is," said Getzlaf. "He's not out there chirping at every guy that skates by or anything like that. He's just a bit of a rat out there, I guess, if you want to call him [that]. He stirs the pot and he does the things that he does and that helps make him a better player."

Don Cherry dekes, dangles and sprints past spears on Coach’s Corner

The CBC's Don Cherry had a very selective memory on Saturday evening. He lamented Brandon Dubinsky's ability to attack Sidney Crosby at will in Game 1 of the Penguins-Blue Jackets series, he mocked Duncan Keith for jabbing at the Blues' stars--suggesting that Keith "got Seabrook pumped up" (before sidestepping that topic)--he reviewed the Blues' game-winning goal against Chicago, lamenting Patrick Kane not blocking a shot, he very briefly praised Pavel Datsyuk's game-winner and suggested that the Wings are the worst team for the Bruins to play as their lack of retaliation prevents the Bruins from playing their game (no Loosick mention on Saturday), and then he praised Corey Perry scoring against Dallas and Ryan Getzlaf's persistence (no spear there, either).

Corey Perry’s nice trip (and goal)

Via Slam Sports' Anthony Vasquez-Peddie, I'm not Corey Perry's biggest fan, but I have to admit that he scored a helluva goal on Monday evening:

Corey Perry’s double dip

You'll have to excuse this Wings fan from taking a little bit of fiendish delight in this clip found by Canoe.ca's John Matisz, because a certain Corey Perry had a difficult night in front of the New York Rangers' bench.

Oh, I could watch this over and over for an hour...

Video- And People Wonder Why Corey Perry Is Disliked Around The League

Nice shorthanded goal by Tommy Wingels to put the Sharks up 4-0 over the Ducks, but watch Corey Perry with a needless shot to Dan Boyle who was following the play.

No penalty  on the play but Boyle and Perry did go at it soon after this goal.

Report- Corey Perry Close To Re-Signing With Anaheim

Kein Weekes on the NHL Network is reporting Perry could sign shortly.

Stay Tuned.

added 10:48pm,

via the Anaheim Ducks,

The Ducks have agreed to terms with right wing Corey Perry on an eight-year contract extension. Perry, a 2007 Stanley Cup champion and 2010 Olympic gold medalist, is now under contract with the Ducks through the 2020-21 NHL season. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

“We are excited that Corey has committed to us for the next eight years,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “Similar to the case with Ryan Getzlaf, Corey wanted to stay in Anaheim and be part of our organization long term. He is an exceptional player who competes with heart and soul and has won at every level.”

Corey Perry Would Be A Great UFA Signing For Ottawa

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Don't for a minute think that Anaheim is going to trade Perry at next month's deadline, and that his new team will lock him up with a long-term contract. The Ducks can win it all this season -- unless they deal Perry.

Of course, nobody knows for sure what Perry is thinking other than Perry. But it looks very much like he's not going to stay in Anaheim, and if he has any thought of returning to Ontario, wouldn't he pick the Senators over the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Sure, the Buds are improving. Maybe they were his favourite team as a kid. But here, he'll line up with one of the best playmaking centres in the NHL, and he'll be on the same team as the one of the most offensively dynamic defencemen in league history.

Does he want to take passes from Tyler Bozak and Jake Gardiner -- presuming the latter is one day set free to rejoin the Leafs -- or Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson?

Corey Perry On His Suspension

from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog,

Corey Perry figured that he would receive some form of discipline from the NHL for his hit on Minnesota's Jason Zucker and the possibility of him being out of the Ducks' lineup was realistic.
But a four-game suspension? That one didn't enter the winger's mind.

"I think it’s caught a lot of people off guard," Perry said. "It is what it is. We just move on, like I said before. People are going to have their own opinions. Just play it out."

Perry will not only be missing from Thursday night's game against the Dallas Stars but he'll miss contests on Saturday in St. Louis and two next week at home against San Jose and Chicago. He'll return next Friday against Detroit.
