After an internal investigation, the Chicago Blackhawks have determined that Corey Perry
has engaged in conduct that is unacceptable, and in violation of both the terms of his Standard Player's Contract and the Blackhawks' internal policies intended to promote professional and safe work environments. As such, Corey Perry
has been placed on unconditional waivers. In the event Mr. Perry clears waivers, we intend to terminate his contract effective immediately.
Perry will likely be done for the year in the NHL, and there will likely be no further explanation of his conduct. We will monitor the situation and update when more information becomes available.
