The Ducks today have bought out the contract of right wing Corey Perry.
Perry, 34 (5/16/85), won a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship, World Cup, Memorial Cup and World Junior title. Only Perry and Scott Niedermayer have accomplished this feat in hockey history. Perry is the only Hart Memorial Trophy winner in franchise history, becoming only the third player on the West Coast to win the award (Wayne Gretzky and Joe Thornton). Perry is also one of eight players in hockey history to win a Stanley Cup, Gold Medal and Hart Trophy, joining Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Dominik Hasek, Peter Forsberg, Jaromir Jagr, Chris Pronger and Joe Sakic. In addition, he is one of 11 Canadian skaters and 29 players all-time in the Triple Gold Club (Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship gold medal).
