This is a developing story, but big news has just broken in the hockey world.

After a significant meeting with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, former Montreal Canadiens forward Corey Perry has officially been given the green light to sign with a team as of today!

Perry with a new team this week?

Let's remember that he is currently a free agent and can sign with the team of his choice, under his desired terms.
Expect him to sign with a team at the NHL's minimum salary to finish this season.
Will that team be the Montreal Canadiens? Stay tuned!
"Corey Perry is officially allowed to sign with any team of his choice after meeting with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, according to Elliotte Friedman." - Via DailyFaceoff Fantasy

We're really excited to see where he will sign.
Perry, 38 years old, had a solid start to the 2023-24 season, tallying 9 points (4 goals) in 16 games this season, outperforming the likes of Pierre-Luc Dubois.
"I can confirm that Corey Perry is eligible to sign with any NHL team as a free agent after his contract was terminated by the Blackhawks on November 30.

He must sign before the trade deadline on March 8 to be eligible for this year's playoffs." - Chris Johnston, TSN

A final note to mention that with Gustav Lindstrom's departure in the last few hours (claimed off waivers by Anaheim), it frees up a contract spot for Kent Hughes.
Also, remember that Perry has maintained important relationships with the likes of Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki.
And it's confirmed by Chris Johnston:
