Does Corey Perry have a Stanley Cup ring?

NHL: Stanley Cup Final-Florida Panthers at Edmonton Oilers
Does Corey Perry have a Stanley Cup ring?

Corey Perry signed with the Edmonton Oilers in January after the Chicago Blackhawks terminated his contract. The move marked Perry's sixth team in his extensive 19-year career, starting when he was drafted No. 28 overall by the Anaheim Ducks in 2003.

Notably, Perry is also the first NHL player to reach the Stanley Cup Final with five different teams. He has been on a trip to the final with the likes of the Ducks, Canadiens, Stars, Lightning and now the Oilers. This is his fourth final in the past five seasons.

Corey Perry clinched a Stanley Cup ring in 2007 as part of the Anaheim Ducks, who beat the Ottawa Senators in five games to claim their inaugural championship.

Apart from his Stanley Cup ring, Perry has also earned the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy as the top scorer and the Hart Memorial Trophy for being the most valuable player in the league in 2011.

Corey Perry and Oilers remain focused on present scenario

After going down 3-0 in the series, the Edmonton Oilers bounced back with a remarkable performance. They beat the Florida Panthers convincingly, 8-1, to stave off elimination and force a Game 5 in the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday.

Corey Perry and the Oilers know that coming back from here is going to be a daunting task for them. The 34-year-old veteran forward emphasized the importance of staying focused on the present rather than looking too far ahead.

Perry acknowledged the strength of the Panthers despite a thumping win, highlighting the importance of taking the game step by step, starting with one period, one game, and building from there.

"If you start looking too far ahead, it’s a daunting task,” Perry said. “They’re a great team, we know that. You start with one period, one game, and you work your way from there.”

Only the Toronto Maple Leafs in NHL history have come back from a 3-0 deficit to win the Stanley Cup. They achieved the remarkable feat during the 1942 Final against the Detroit Red Wings. The Edmonton Oilers could become the next team to do so.

Corey Perry and the Oilers will hope that the momentum of Game 4 remains with them when they travel to Alerant Bank Arena to take on the Panthers for Game 5. The puck drops at 8. p.m. ET.
