Corey Perry Details Decision to Sign With Tampa Bay Lightning & Losing to Tampa 2 Years in a Row
Watch as Veteran Corey Perry discusses signing 2-year deal with Tampa Bay Lightning.
Corey Perry spoke his decision to sign with Tampa after back-to-back Stanley Cup losses in 2020 & 2021 following short stays with Dallas and Montreal.
“There were some teams we talked to, obviously Montreal was a big part of that, and Tampa came along. It’s an exciting time for my family, for myself personally to go down there and help them try to win again.”
“I’m trying to help the Tampa Bay Lightning win another Stanley Cup,” Perry added.
“I have to say thank you to them,” said Perry on his goodbye to Montreal. “They gave me a chance last season, I knew coming in that season that I’d be starting on the taxi squad and having to prove myself.”
Perry also spoke on the 2007 Stanley Cup championship with Anaheim and making it back to the Stanley Cup.
“Sometimes when you win it so young, you take it for granted. When you’re 22 years old and you get your name on the cup, you have no idea. You think it’s gonna happen every single season, but it took me 14 years to get back.”
