Blackhawks Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Corey Perry

Corey Perry is likely to be traded this season, as the Chicago Blackhawks are rebuilding, and he is on an expiring deal. There will be plenty of teams interested in the veteran winger, so let’s discuss two clubs who will surely be in the mix for his services.  

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Maple Leafs have been connected to Perry for many years, and it is likely that they will consider adding him at the deadline. This is especially so when noting that the Maple Leafs’ bottom six has not been producing well and could use a boost. Thus, don’t be surprised if the Maple Leafs look to add him.

Tampa Bay Lightning: Perry proved to be an amazing fit with the Lightning, so they could look to bring him back this season. This is especially so if the Blackhawks retain half of Perry’s salary. He would be a nice addition to their bottom six, as he would provide secondary scoring to go along with grit and leadership. 

Expect these two clubs and many others to be in the mix for Perry’s services as we get closer to the trade deadline from here.
