New development in the Corey Perry case: it becomes more and more confirmed.

Corey Perry's journey with the Tampa Bay Lightning is coming to an end, as he will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

While many thought he might make a comeback with the club, and the 38-year-old veteran could still be in pursuit of winning a Stanley Cup before the end of his career, a significant decision has just been made in his case.

According to Elliotte Friedman, Perry will test the free-agent market, which therefore revives the hopes of those who wish him to join the Canadiens to support the organization's young wolves.

Let us remember that Perry always has his eye on the CH, regularly keeping up with the team during the two years he spent in Tampa. Moreover, he still maintains an excellent relationship with the Canadiens' two young stars, Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.

A connection is easily traced between him and the Montreal organization for a return, so that he could end his impressive career here. It is clear that his leadership could be very interesting for this young team.
