Free agent forward Corey Perry and the Edmonton Oilers have reached an agreement on a one-year contract that has an average annual value (AAV) of $775,000 plus performance bonuses.

With 1,273 NHL regular season games played, the 38-year-old right winger has 892 points (421 goals and 471 assists). In his 196 career postseason appearances, Perry has scored 124 points with 53 goals and 71 assists.

The Peterborough, Ontario, native won the Hart Memorial Trophy as league MVP and the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal scorer during the 2010–11 season while playing for the Anaheim Ducks. He also scored 50 goals and 98 points.

In addition to playing in three straight Stanley Cup Final series with the Dallas Stars (2020), Montreal Canadiens (2021), and Tampa Bay Lightning (2022), Perry won the 2007 Stanley Cup with the Ducks.

In addition, he won gold medals at the Olympics with Team Canada in Vancouver (2010) and Sochi (2014).

Perry will don jersey number 90 for the first time in Oilers history.

With his 28th goal of the season, Zach Hyman added an empty-netter to lead all Oilers in scoring during their amazing winning run.

With his win, Skinner tied Grant Fuhr’s franchise record for the most wins in a row for the Oilers. The goalie’s performance throughout the run of games has been a key component of the team’s combined defence, which has only allowed two goals or fewer in 11 straight games, the majority of which have been close, one-goal contests in which Edmonton needed contributions from every position in the lineup to win.

After the game on Saturday, Skinner remarked, “It’s kind of the same story, I think just with the way we started.” “I think we learned a lot of harsh lessons along the way, and we may still be learning them now and then. It’s all part of our ongoing process to keep improving.

“We thought that as we headed to the third period,
