What is Corey Perry Net Worth ?
Corey Perry is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who has a net worth of $35 million. His ability to get under his opponent’s skin and his abrasive playing style earned him the nickname “the Worm.”
He was at times one of the highest-paid players in the NHL thanks largely to an 8-year $69 million deal signed with Anaheim in 2013. During his career in total, Corey Perry earned right around $80 million in salary.
Perry’s younger brother Adam also plays hockey and the two played together on the London Knights’ 2005 Memorial Cup-winning team, though he eventually decided to pursue law enforcement and became a police officer.
Perry lives in London, Ontario during the hockey off-season. He began dating girlfriend Blakeny Robertson early in life and the two married on July 18, 2015. The couple had their first son, Griffin, in August of 2017.
Perry was born on May 16, 1985, in New Liskeard, Ontario, Canada. He was the first of two sons born to parents Geoff and Nancy Parry. His father worked in law enforcement. When Perry was ten, his family moved from Haileybury, Ontario to Peterborough, Ontario
Along with this younger brother Adam, Perry learned to skate at the age of two. He began playing hockey with the Peterborough Minor Petes AAA organization of the OMHA’s Eastern AAA league. In 2001, he helped lead the team to victory in the inaugural OHL Cup Bantam AAA Championship in Peterborough.
Because of his successful minor league career, Perry was drafted fifth overall into the Ontario Hockey League by the London Knights in the 2001 Priority Draft. During his rookie season, he recorded 59 points in 60 games, setting himself up well for his second season, his NHL draft year.
He improved his record to 78 points and was selected 28th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, though he continued playing for the Knights. During the 2003-04 season, he became the first Knight to reach 100 points in a season since player Jason Allison did in 1994.
In his fourth year with the Knights, he scored a junior career-high of 130 points in 60 games. The following season, he made his professional debut with the Ducks 2005. He scored his first career goal against the Edmonton Oilers on October 10th and then went on to score a point in each of his first four career games.
During the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs, Perry did not score a goal but did manage three assists before the Ducks were eliminated in the Western Conference Final to Edmonton.
The following season, Perry improved his scoring records and helped the Ducks reach the 2007 Stanley Cup playoffs, scoring 15 points in 21 games. In a dramatic run-up to the final, Perry was instrumental in several critical games and helped the Ducks secure its first-ever Stanley Cup. During the 2007-08 season, he again increased his scoring total and was named to his first NHL All-Star Game as an injury replacement.
He also made Ducks history in January when he scored a goal just 16 seconds into the game, the second-fastest goal ever scored by a Duck. However, the Ducks did not replicate their previous year’s success, losing to the Dallas Stars in the 2008 Conference Quarterfinals. During the off-season, Perry signed a five-year contract extension with the Ducks.
