NHL insider Frank Seravalli reports on spicy Connor Bedard and Corey Perry rumor

Frank is fired up!



Veteran NHL forward Corey Perry is on waivers today with the Chicago Blackhawks announcing that if he clears waivers, he'll have his contract terminated by the club for "engaging in conduct that is unacceptable and in violation of... policies intended to promote professional and safe work environments."

From the team:


It's clear that Perry messed up LARGE. No details yet on what exactly transpired, though.

What we do know is that last week Perry left the Blackhawks due to what the team is calling an 'organizational decision'.

So... what's going on here?

It's clear that there's something happened between Perry and the Blackhawks, but we're not getting any clear info from the usual sources. So... to social media we go!

On Reddit and on Twitter (Or X, thanks Elon...) there is a hot rumor making the rounds that Perry actually hooked up with Melanie Bedard, mother of Blackhawks superstar rookie Connor Bedard.

Some hot takes from Twitter:

Blackhawks insider Charlie Roumelioutis though, is squashing the rumor saying that it's 100% false.

Check it out:

And today NHL insider Frank Seravalli squashed the rumor in no uncertain terms, calling it, "fucking bullshit."

From Seravalli:

"The stuff that's been floating around about Corey Perry and one of his teammates' mothers is fucking bullshit. And I think it's ridiculous that this is something that was perpetuated on social media. It is so far from the truth and so unfair."

"Connor Bedard... he was raised right. His parents are really polite, proper people. There's zero chance that something like this would happen and yet it will stick with him for a long time."

Honestly, I never bought into the rumor. 

These are professional athletes... they get plenty of action on the road if they want it. They don't have to go scrounging through the family room to find interested women. To be fair to Perry though, he's married with children. I may not be the biggest Perry fan due to his on-ice antics, but I haven't heard or read anything that suggests he's not an upstanding family man.

Move along, people.
