Corey Perry was brought to Edmonton during the middle of the season and now has thousands of dollars on the line depending on how the Edmonton Oilers do versus the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

This past season has been a whirlwind for Corey Perry. Originally signing a contract with the Chicago Blackhawks to be Connor Bedard's mentor, Perry was terminated halfway through the season and became an unrestricted free agent.
From there he signed a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers with ambitions of winning the Stanley Cup once again. Playing in 38 regular season games, Perry notched eight goals and 13 points in a bottom-six role.
Built into his contract are performance bonuses based on how well the Oilers do in the playoffs and Perry has thousands on line for their series against the Dallas Stars.
Corey Perry #LetsGoOilers - $50k if Edmonton wins the 3rd round and Perry: a) plays in 50% of the 3rd round games, or b) 50% of the total round 1, 2 & 3 games

Perry has gotten into 10 of the 14 possible playoff games so far for the Oilers and even if the series goes to seven games and Perry does not play in any more games, the performance bonus would apply to him as he played in over half of the games assuming the Oilers win.
The $50,000 bonus will apply to the Oilers' cap hit for next season as an overage penalty as the Oilers have already paid out over $3 million in bonuses thus far.
