Corey Perry's tenure in Big D isn't starting the way he envisioned.
Perry plans to be ready for the season opener against the Boston Bruins on Oct. 3, he told The Athletic's Sean Shapiro.
The 34-year-old veteran signed a one-year, $1.5-million contract with the Stars on July 1 after the Anaheim Ducks bought him out.
The former Hart Trophy winner missed the first four months of the 2018-19 campaign following knee surgery in September. He was a shell of his former self after returning, tallying just 10 points in 31 games.
