NHLPA Will Take Legal Action And File A Grievance For Corey Perry's Termination

Corey Perry faced contract termination from the Chicago Blackhawks after a mysterious off-ice incident earlier this season.

The NHL conducted a thorough investigation, giving Perry the green light to return to hockey. The Edmonton Oilers then signed him, but the NHL Players Association is still hung up on the Chicago situation.

Chris Johnston and Elliotte Friedman's reports reveal that the Players' Union is gearing up to challenge Perry's contract termination. The league has granted an extension for the Union to file the grievance, with the commissioner seemingly backing this move.




Whatever went down in Chicago, it wasn't great, but many argue it shouldn't warrant contract termination and a league ban.

The Players' Union is adamant about not letting this become a precedent, fighting for players' rights in the process. Perry, despite downplaying the grievance, could be owed a significant portion of his $4 million Chicago contract if the claim succeeds.

Currently, he's focused on making amends, seeking help, and contributing to the Edmonton Oilers pursuit of the Stanley Cup.
