Corey Perry has been absent from the Chicago Blackhawks lineup since Novembre 19th, marked as a healthy scratch due to an organizational decision. Blackhawks GM Kyle Davidson provided no detailed update, stating Perry would be away for the "foreseeable future" based on the team's decision, not Perry's choice.

Perry's agent, Pat Morris, released a statement mentioning that Perry stepped away for personal matters, emphasizing the need for privacy for him and his family.


The 38-year-old veteran was scratched from the Blackhawks' game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday and was also absent from the lineup against the Columbus Blue Jackets last Wednesday.


In his first season with Chicago, Perry has recorded four goals and five assists in 16 games. Acquired from the Tampa Bay Lightning in June and signed to a one-year, $4-million contract, Perry brings a wealth of experience from his extensive NHL career, playing for the Anaheim Ducks, Dallas Stars, Montreal Canadiens, and Lightning before joining the Blackhawks.
