Corey Perry signs with the Montreal Canadiens
Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Monday that the team has agreed to terms with forward Corey Perry on a one-year, one-way contract. The deal has a value of $750,000.
Perry, 35, played 57 games with the Dallas Stars in 2019-20 and registered 21 points (5-16-21) while serving a team-leading 70 penalty minutes. The right-handed forward added five goals and four helpers in 27 playoff games, helping the Stars reach the Stanley Cup Finals. Perry has skated in 1,045 NHL career games, tallying 377 goals and 420 assists with Anaheim and Dallas.
The 6-foot-3, 205 lbs right winger won the Stanley Cup in 2007 with Anaheim and was awarded the Maurice Richard and Hart trophies in 2010-11. The Peterborough, ON native also earned two Olympic gold medals with Team Canada in Vancouver (2010) and Sotchi (2014).
Perry was selected in the first round (28th overall) by the Anaheim Mighty Ducks at the 2003 NHL draft.
