Nick Foligno, another highly respected veteran within the Blackhawks' locker room, offered his perspective on the situation:

"It's stunning, to be honest with you. We all care about Corey. But we understand that there's a standard we're going to be held to. So it's a really hard day for all of us and it's hard when you don't have all the details to comment fully. But you care about the person and we care about this organization, and they're going to do what's best for all of us and we have to know that and understand there's a standard we have to get to."

Seth Jones shared his thoughts too:

"We don't have any details of what happened, but I know the organization wants to keep a level of conduct here, and make it a place where we hold each other to a standard. I guess that was broken."

Throughout his career, Corey Perry had a positive influence on his teammates, as reflected in their statements. This situation has not been easy for them, as they are not only losing a talented player but also a respected leader and friend. Nonetheless, they recognize that actions have consequences, and it seems that Corey Perry's actions led to this outcome.
