Corey Perry's time in Tampa Bay is reportedly over

Corey Perry's time with the Tampa Bay Lightning has reportedly come to a close after two seasons with the organization.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, Perry will hit the open market on July 1st and wondered if the Toronto Maple Leafs could be a fit for the 38-year-old.

"Looks like Corey Perry will be hitting the market. After all these years, do the Maple Leafs finally make it work? Think of the content." Friedman said.

Perry, a native of London (Ontario), took a bit of a step back this season after putting up 40 points in his first season with the Lightning. In 81 games this season, Perry had 25 points (12 goals, 13 assists), 95 penalty minutes and was a minus-28. During the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he added five points in six games.

There will be several teams that will want to sign Perry when he hits the open market on Canada Day. Perry's salary would likely only be in the $1-$2.5 million range and only on a one-year deal, given his age. So it could be a very reasonable deal for any team.
