Reactions from Blackhawks' Leaders Regarding Perry's Contract Termination


Nick Foligno, another highly regarded veteran within the Blackhawks' locker room, shared his perspective on the matter:

"It's stunning, to be honest with you. We all care about Corey. But we understand that there's a standard we're going to be held to. So it's a really hard day for all of us and it's hard when you don't have all the details to comment fully. But you care about the person and we care about this organization, and they're going to do what's best for all of us and we have to know that and understand there's a standard we have to get to."

Seth Jones also spoke out:

"We don't have any details of what happened, but I know the organization wants to keep a level of conduct here, and make it a place where we hold each other to a standard. I guess that was broken."

Corey Perry had a positive impact on his teammates throughout his career, evident in their statements. This situation has proven to be emotionally challenging for them, as they are not merely losing a skilled player but also a respected leader and friend. Nonetheless, they acknowledge that actions bear consequences, and it seems that Corey Perry's actions led to the outcome we are witnessing.
