It was a whirlwind 2023-24 NHL campaign for veteran forward Corey Perry, who had his contract terminated by the Chicago Blackhawks for unprofessional workplace conduct. Following a stint in the NHL Player Assistance Program, he resurfaced with the Edmonton Oilers, and helped them to within a game of winning the Stanley Cup last month. 

And despite having now lost in the Stanley Cup Final in four of the last five years with four different teams, he's seen fit to run it back with the Oilers for one more year, which could potentially be his final NHL season. It's been announced that Perry has re-signed with Edmonton for the 2024-25 season, and will earn $1.4 million: 

He would finish last season playing in 54 total games, scoring 12 goals with 10 assists. He'd tally a single goal in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Oilers while adding an assist in 19 games. 

In 1,311 NHL games with the Anaheim Ducks, Dallas Stars, Montreal Canadiens, Tampa Bay Lightning, Blackhawks and Oilers, Perry has tallied 429 goals with 476 assists.
