ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Although Corey Perry has won a Stanley Cup, an MVP award and an NHL goal-scoring title in his short career, the Anaheim Ducks' star forward remains hungry for more hardware.
Another NHL title with the Ducks is his first choice.
After a tumultuous season of impressive highs and ugly lows, the Ducks return with largely the same core in search of improvement on last spring's first-round playoff ouster.
Despite their oustery by the Nashville Predators, the Ducks ended last season with a wealth of reasons for optimism. Anaheim surged back from a mediocre start with a fantastic finish featuring multiple heart-stopping victories in the regular season, winning 15 of its final 20 games.
