Corey Perry’s professional hockey career

The Anaheim Ducks chose Ontario native Corey Perry in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft with the 28th overall pick. On October 10, he scored his first career goal against the Edmonton Oilers.

With the Portland Pirates, the Ducks' AHL affiliate then, Perry continued his success in the league while collaborating with Ryan Getzlaf. In just 36 games, they amassed an astounding 67 points collectively. Due to this, both players were duly called up to the Ducks' roster in time for the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Corey Perry has had efficient careers with other prominent teams like the Dallas Stars, Montreal Canadiens, and the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the New York Rangers after a spirited six-game series to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2022. Perry became the second player in NHL history, after Marian Hossa, to make it to the Finals in three straight seasons while playing for three different teams.

Perry further cemented his place in history in Game 3 of the Finals by becoming the only person to ever score a goal in the Stanley Cup Finals with four separate clubs.

However, Perry faced a third straight loss in the Finals, each time with a different team. He was traded to the Blackhawks by the Lightning on June 29, 2023.
