Today the Chicago Blackhawks provided an update about the future of Corey Perry and it doesn't sound good.

Chicago Blackhawks Share Concerning Update on Corey Perry's Future



In a recent announcement, Chicago Blackhawks General Manager Kyle Davidson provided an update on Corey Perry, stating that Perry will be taking an indefinite break from the team.

Corey Perry will remain away from the Blackhawks "for the foreseeable future," Kyle Davidson says.




The Hawks' GM, Kyle Davidson, refrained from commenting on whether Corey Perry is dealing with a physical issue. Similar to head coach Luke Richardson, Davidson is keeping details about Perry's situation undisclosed.


Consequently, speculation regarding Perry's absence has ranged from personal matters to trade rumors. Unfortunately, it seems fans will be left in the dark about this matter for the "foreseeable future."

As of now, Corey Perry, who also serves as an alternate captain, has accumulated nine points (four goals, five assists) in 16 games during his first season with the Blackhawks. Due to his mysterious absence and Taylor Hall's season-ending injury, recent call-ups Joey Anderson and Cole Guttman are expected to see increased ice time within Chicago's forward group.



Of course with all that said and done, this news raises more questions than answers regarding Perry's situation. It appears to be more than just a strategic move for a potential trade, hinting at a more serious matter. Our thoughts are with Perry, and we hope for his well-being.

As additional information becomes available, we'll keep you updated.

The Blackhawks are scheduled to return to action on Sunday, hosting the St. Louis Blues with puck drop at 1 PM CT, airing on NBC Sports Chicago.
