Corey Perry's 8 year deal with ANA is $8.625M AAV.
Perry will remain in Anaheim for the next eight years along with Ryan Getzlaf. The two have inked eight year deals this season for very similar money. Perry gets $69 million over eight years, while Getzlaf gets $66 million. Perry has 214 goals and 239 assists for a total of 453 points in 555 career NHL games, all of which have been with the Ducks.
Perry was in obvious pain on the bench and eventually went to the locker room before he tried to return to the first period. The winger could only play another two shifts as he would call it a night.
Perry is definitely banged up after last night's game. With the Ducks in the middle of a playoff run, expect him to try his best to stay in. After scoring 50 goals last year, Perry has 34 tallies and 55 points in 69 games.
“I see nothing wrong with two guys at the same level if they chose to drop the gloves,” Carlyle said. “When there’s a mismatch as far as the level of player…Dubinsky’s a pretty good player, and so is Corey Perry. If it’s a different level of player fighting a more skilled player then I look at it differently.”
Good to see coach Randy Carlyle will let Corey Perry fight at his leisure. Last season, the MVP fought twice according to HockeyFights.com; he might break that marker this season.
The Ducks’ “Big 3? hadn’t done much this preseason, until Tuesday. Perry scored twice and Getzlaf had the game-winner in overtime as the Ducks won their exhibition finale over Jokerit, 4-3.
Sounds like coach Randy Carlyle pondered breaking up the Big 3 in an attempt to get them going. Last season, Perry wowed hockey fans around the glob with 50 goals and 98 points. While the manner he scored those goals will be difficult to replicate, 35-40 tallies are to be expected.
