Ducks Buy Out Contract of Corey Perry


The Ducks today have bought out the contract of right wing Corey Perry.
Perry, 34 (5/16/85), won a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship, World Cup, Memorial Cup and World Junior title. Only Perry and Scott Niedermayer have accomplished this feat in hockey history. Perry is the only Hart Memorial Trophy winner in franchise history, becoming only the third player on the West Coast to win the award (Wayne Gretzky and Joe Thornton). Perry is also one of eight players in hockey history to win a Stanley Cup, Gold Medal and Hart Trophy, joining Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Dominik Hasek, Peter Forsberg, Jaromir Jagr, Chris Pronger and Joe Sakic. In addition, he is one of 11 Canadian skaters and 29 players all-time in the Triple Gold Club (Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship gold medal).
A two-time NHL First Team All-Star and four-time All Star, Perry and Chicago's Patrick Kane are the only two right wings with two NHL First Team honors since 2010-11. The only other players with multiple First Team honors since 2010-11 are Crosby (3), Connor McDavid (2), Alex Ovechkin (2) and Jamie Benn (2). The Peterborough, Ontario native holds several all-time franchise records, including most games played (988) and penalty minutes (1,110). He also ranks second in franchise goals (372) and game-winning goals (64), and third in points (776), assists (404) and power-play goals (103). Selected by Anaheim in the first round in the 2003 NHL Draft, Perry also owns a postseason franchise record for overtime goals (4).
