Chicago Blackhawks General Manager Kyle Davidson revealed on Tuesday that the front office learned about possible misconduct by Corey Perry during a team trip last week. This discovery led to an internal investigation, resulting in the organization cutting ties with the veteran winger. The Blackhawks placed the 38-year-old on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract for unacceptable conduct violating contractual terms and internal policies.

During the Blackhawks press conference, Kyle Davidson addressed reporters for 10 minutes, acknowledging the difficulty of the situation and emphasizing the need for thorough steps before sharing details. While he couldn't provide full answers, he pledged openness and honesty.
The team refrained from specifying the alleged misconduct, but Davidson clarified it was a workplace matter and not criminal. The NHL and NHLPA were informed, and Davidson emphasized it was a team decision.
The allegations surfaced last week during the Blackhawks' trip to Columbus, prompting an immediate investigation. Perry, who didn't play in the game, was pulled once the team was notified. Davidson, emotional at times, didn't disclose Perry's reaction to the decision.

According to Emily Kaplan, Perry traveled with the Blackhawks to Columbus last week and an incident occurred that day with a team employee.
"A source told ESPN's @emilymkaplan that Corey Perry traveled with the #Blackhawks to Columbus last Tuesday, a day before the game, and an incident occurred that day involving a team employee."

Perry's status had been uncertain, and social media speculation suggested family involvement, which Davidson vehemently denied, calling it inaccurate and disgusting. The Blackhawks played three times since Perry's last game, winning once.
Perry, signed for $4 million in the offseason, spent the previous two seasons with the Tampa Bay Lightning. A 19-year veteran, he boasts an impressive career with 421 goals and 471 assists, winning the Stanley Cup in 2007 with the Anaheim Ducks and the Hart Trophy in 2010-11.
