Ever since Corey Perry received clearance from the commissioner to return to the NHL this season after the incident in Chicago, fans and media have been speculating wildly on possible destinations for Perry, but also when he could possibly sign the contract. Now, Frank Seravalli is reporting when we could expect Perry to actually put pen to paper with an NHL team.

According to Seravalli, it's likely that Perry is signed sometime between the NHL's All Star Break and the trade deadline, but there is still a solid possibility it could happen before the break.
The only deadline is March 8th so that he's eligible for the playoffs. In terms of actual, authentic timeline, I don't know what it is. I don't think teams know what it is yet. The logic would seem to indicate that this is something that happens on the other side of the break, but I wouldn't bet my house on it.

Seravalli continued in the video to once again confirm that the Oilers are one of the candidates vying to sign Perry, but are competing with a field of around 5-7 teams. In adding Perry, the Oilers address a need in secondary scoring and add to an already lethal offence, as well as his pest like presence being invaluable in the playoffs.
Any team that signs Perry, likely for a one year contract near league minimum, will be adding a high impact player for no cost. At 38 years old, Perry proved he could still be an impact player in his short stint with the Blackhawks, scoring 4 goals and 9 points in 16 games. On a better quality team, he could likely be an even more valuable contributor, especially considering his intangibles he brings in the playoffs. It'll be a race to the finish to see who Perry selects to sign with this year.
