One of the greatest players in Anaheim Ducks history could be on his way out.
Anaheim has contemplated a buyout if a trade can't be worked out, LeBrun added.
Perry has two years remaining on his contract and comes with an $8.625-million cap hit. He has a full no-movement clause, which would give him control over any trade, but not a buyout.
Here's what a buyout for the 34-year-old would look like, according to CapFriendly:
|Season||Post-buyout cap hit|
The Ducks have $9.13 million in projected cap space but don't have any key pending free agents.
Perry's production has cratered over the past three seasons. He hasn't reached the 20-goal mark since 2015-16, and he managed just 10 points in 31 games during an injury-riddled 2018-19 campaign.
He's the franchise's all-time leader in games played and ranks second in goals, third in assists, and third in points. He was named the league's Most Valuable Player during his 50-goal campaign in 2010-11. His goal-scoring exploits that season also earned him the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy.
