Ducks Off the Ice by Adam Brady

He isn't typically the most garrulous of Ducks, but Corey Perry showed some serious personality this weekend in Ottawa.

The reigning MVP shined during the Breakaway Challenge during Saturday's Skills Competition at Scotiabank Place. He led off his first of two attempts with a lacrosse move where he carried the puck on his blade before losing it at the last moment and backhanding it past goalie Brian Elliott. On his third try, he revealed something even more creative -- and downright funny.

Just as it looked like he was going to skate in on net, Perry stopped, threw away both gloves and his stick, and pulled a mini stick out of his gear. He then bent way low to move in on Elliott, hilariously deking right and left before Elliott graciously bailed out of net as Perry sent it through from his knees.

Here's the video of both moves:



Unfortunately, Perry was beat out by Patrick Kane of the Blackhawks, who boldly donned a Superman cape and Clark Kent glasses (although everyone knows you don't wear those at the same time). Kane then slid headfirst on his belly before tapping the puck past a playing-along Elliott (here's that video). Kane ended up winning with 47 percent of the fan votes.

Yesterday, Perry's goal in the third period was one of three quick ones in the third that helped Team Chara to a 12-9 victory in a typically laid-back, high-scoring All-Star Game.

Also during the packed weekend for Corey, he managed Friday to meet up with some family and friends at a relative's house not too far from Scotiabank Place. You can read about that in Eric Stephens' nice piece in the OC Register, which includes this from Corey's dad Geoff.

"To the guys around, he's just Corey Perry," he said. "He's just one of the boys. Yeah, he's won a Hart Trophy but we don't dwell on it. He won that back in June and that was for last year. That's the way he goes about things. Just takes them in stride and goes forward.

"Corey just wants to be Corey. He doesn't want any special treatment. The Corey Perry that left here to go play junior hockey is the same person."

As far as getting back to regular Ducks hockey, the team is headed to Phoenix, where they play the Coyotes tomorrow night.
