Corey Perry has finally made an official declaration, his first since the Chicago Blackhawks terminated his contract.

Perry Breaks His Silence for the First Time Since the Incident


Perry's contract was terminated by the Blackhawks following an incident at a team event involving alcohol.

Here is the statement he shared:

I would like to sincerely apologize to the entire Chicago Blackhawks organization, including ownership, management, coaches, trainers, employees, and my teammates. I would also like to apologize to my fans, and my family. I am embarrassed and I have let you all down.

As a result of my actions, there has been speculation and rumors. I am sickened by the impact this has had on others, and I want to make it clear that in no way did this situation involve any of my teammates or their families. Most importantly, I want to directly apologize to those who have been negatively affected and I am sorry for the additional impact to others it has created. My behavior was inappropriate and wrong.

I have started working with experts in the mental health and substance abuse fields to discuss my struggles with alcohol and I will take whatever steps necessary to ensure this never happens again. I hope to regain the trust and respect of everyone who has believed in me throughout my career.
Once again, I am deeply sorry.


Details will follow.
