Perry Linked To Canadian Team After His Release

Today a journalist by the name of Jim Matheson wrote a piece potentially connecting the Edmonton Oilers to Corey Perry.

Matheson suggests the Oilers could be in on the controversial forward because they have signed this kind of player in the past. They of course signed Evander Kane amidst his gambling and covid protocol controversies. His signing has turned out to be a mostly positive thing from an on-ice perspective.

The Oilers have struggled mightily this season, particularly with their depth scoring. Perry would add that depth as well as some bite to the lineup. He would also however bring a media circus along as well.

Perry is the type of player and pedigree that Ken Holland loves to bring in. If they can clear all of the off-ice issues watch for the Oilers to be a major contender for Perry's services.
