One Chicago Blackhawks veteran has spoken out regarding the Corey Perry situation.

Following Corey Perry's contract termination with the Blackhawks a month ago, Nick Foligno shares his views on the impact of his departure.

"There was a little bit of a lull on that road trip, when the dust settled and you realized [Corey is] really not coming back. You could tell the energy he brought was missing. You mourn that loss, and then you realize, ‘Alright, it's not changing, so what are we going to do to get the energy back?' We realized other guys have to step up.

A younger guy is more willing to speak up and more comfortable in a home environment. You get to chat with them more about their lives. Little things come out of those dinners that help the bonding experience.''

At present, Perry remains teamless and has more than a month to lodge a complaint with the NHLPA concerning unjust termination. We are in anticipation to ascertain whether he will join a different team or opt not to participate for the rest of this year.
