Corey Perry has always been known as a player who is a pest. He is a player that you love to have on your team but hate to play against. One of his former teams felt this first hand last night.

Perry Gets A New Opportunity With The Oilers

After being engulfed in a massive scandal earlier this year Corey Perry was released by the Chicago Blackhawks. When he was released many wondered if his NHL career was over. However, one team stepped in to give him another chance.

After weeks away from the game Perry was given a chance by the Edmonton Oilers. He and the Oilers agreed to a one-year contract. Since signing Perry has a point in three appearances.

Last night Perry showed that he can contribute to the team beyond the scoresheet as well.

Perry Causes Chaos With A Dirty Play

The Oilers came in to Anaheim last night where Perry got an opportunity to face his former team the Anaheim Ducks. Perry spent a significant portion of his career with the Ducks including winning a Stanley Cup.

Despite this connection to the Ducks franchise Perry continued to be the player he is known as. On a forecheck during the game Perry skated behind the net and slashed Ducks goaltender John Gibson.

"There was a time we loved when he did stuff like this. 🤷‍♂️"

The Ducks poked fun at the incident with their caption on X. The Oilers would go on to win the game and Perry would further prove his worth to his new team.

As the season continues it will be interesting to see if Perry gets the opportunity to play this style of game against any of his other former squads.
