NBC Broadcaster Confirms The Real Reason Perry Was Terminated



A new clip from a podcast has been going around the internet with a clip of a Blackhawks broadcaster speaking about the Perry incident. John Scott of NBC Sports Chicago confirmed that Perry made a pass at a staff member after drinking which led to his termination.

Confirmed by current NBC Sports Chicago broadcaster John Scott that Corey Perry «made a mistake in Columbus one night, drank too much and made a pass at a staff member who worked at NBC». If that's all Perry did then it's not a big deal and nobody should be concerned.




While there had been rumors of alcohol mixed with an inappropriate encounter with a staff member this is the most detailed account of the incident yet. This update comes just days after Perry signed with the Edmonton Oilers. If this is the extent of the incident it is surprising the Blackhawks decided to terminate Perry.

If there are any more additions or updates to the events of that night we will make sure to provide you with the latest facts.
