A New Corey Perry Situation Has Just Unfolded In The NHL

A few weeks ago, veteran forward Corey Perry released a statement following his contract termination from the Chicago Blackhawks and denied the crazy rumors going around online.


Perry's full statement:


"I would like to sincerely apologize to the entire Chicago Blackhawks organization, including ownership, management, coaches, trainers, employees, and my teammates. I would also like to apologize to my fans, and my family. I am embarrassed and I have let you all down."

"As a result of my actions, there has been speculation and rumors. I am sickened by the impact this has had on others, and I want to make it clear that in no way did this situation involve any of my teammates or their families. Most importantly, I want to directly apologize to those who have been negatively affected and I am sorry for the additional impact to others it has created. My behavior was inappropriate and wrong."

"I have started working with experts in the mental health and substance abuse fields to discuss my struggles with alcohol and I will take whatever steps necessary to ensure this never happens again. I hope to regain the trust and respect of everyone who has believed in my throughout my career."

"Once again, I am deeply sorry."

Shortly after, insider Frank Seravalli confirmed that Perry was dismissed from the team for inappropriate and unacceptable conduct, fueled by alcohol consumption.

"According to sources, an alcohol-fueled incident involving Perry was alleged to have occurred during an event that included corporate partners and team employees in attendance."

It seems there's a similar situation unfolding in Minnesota. The Minnesota Wild have suddenly parted ways with assistant GM Chris O'Hearn and details about the circumstances remain unclear.


Wild insider Michael Russo was the one who broke the news, and while he has been somewhat cryptic about the specifics, something transpired swiftly between O'Hearn and the team. O'Hearn has been general manager Bill Guerin's right hand man since 2019 and they have a close relationship which makes this even more intriguing.

The reasons for O'Hearn's sudden dismissal are speculative at this point, but it's pretty clear that something significant caused this abrupt decision.

Stay tuned for more details...
