Since breaking into the NHL in 2005-06, Corey Perry has been one of the most productive forwards in the league.

He’s hit the 20-goal mark eight times, the 30-goal mark six times, the 40-goal mark twice, and the 50-goal mark once.

But last year was a tough stretch for the 32-year-old forward, as he put up 19 goals and 53 points in 82 contests. For a player making $8.625 million per season, clearly it’s not enough production.

It was the first time since 2006-07 (his second year in the league) that Perry doesn’t score at least 27 goals (excluding the lockout-shortened season).

The Ducks were able to overcome Perry’s inconsistent play by making it to the Western Conference Final, but getting better production from him would go a long way in helping them make another cup run before their window closes.

Perry’s played a lot of hockey over the years. The Ducks have gone on multiple playoff runs, he’s played in a number of different tournaments at the international level. The fact that he plays a physical brand of hockey may also hinder his ability to bounce back this season.

Was Perry’s slow 2016-17 season a blip on the radar, or will he be able to return to the goal-scoring machine he was for the better part of a decade.
