The saga involving former Montreal Canadiens forward Corey Perry seemed to have ended, but a new and intriguing twist has just emerged.

As reported by TVA Sports, the former assistant captain owes a significant amount of money to the organization, potentially up to a million dollars to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Since Corey Perry only played 16 games before his contract was terminated, which is less than a quarter of the regular season, he should, in theory, be entitled to only one million dollars of his four-million-dollar contract.

However, the Blackhawks had already paid him two million dollars, including a signing bonus. This means that Perry might be obligated to repay about one million dollars soon.


"The 38-year-old veteran was entitled to one of the $4 million from the one-year contract he signed last July. This is because he played about 25% of the season. The problem is that Perry received $2 million, thanks in part to a signing bonus." - TVA Sports

Wow! This story is far from over!

Corey Perry will have 60 days to file a grievance with the National Hockey League Players' Association if he wishes to potentially keep this money. A spokesperson for the union indicated that the case is currently under review, and a final verdict will be known in the near future.

This case has already seen several twists, and it wouldn't be surprising if there were more developments in the future.
