Insider Perry Likely Owes Blackhawks Money After Being Terminated
The Corey Perry
saga continues in Chicago, as TSN's Chris Johnston has revealed that the contract termination will likely force Perry into over $1 million in debt to the Blackhawks.
"Perry has 60 days to decide if he wants to file a grievance via the NHL Players' Association. The matter remains under review, according to a union spokesman. Should he elect to go that route, it would be an exercise in preserving his earning power."
"Perry is entitled to keep approximately $1 million of his $4 million salary after spending roughly 25 percent of the season on the Blackhawks roster prior to having his contract terminated, which means he technically owes money back to the organization because he received a $2 million signing bonus over the summer."
Perry, who was probably excited to receive $2 million in cash to start the year, is now probably hoping that he still has some left over.
Perry Drama Continues to Follow the Blackhawks After Termination
The Perry saga will follow the Blackhawks likely for the rest of the season and has continued to cause issues with the Blackhawks. Recently, the Winnipeg Jets owner was forced to apologize to Connor Bedard
after he was berated by reporters asking inappropriate questions about his family.
Darren Pang said on #Blackhawks broadcast that Jets owner boarded Hawks' bus to apologize to Connor Bedard
for Winnipeg media's continuous questions about made-up rumors in Corey Perry
It remains to be seen if Perry will file the grievance with the NHLPA and continue the drama, or if he will eat the money he owes and go silently.
