Corey Perry Donates to a Friend
To help his recently paralyzed friend Cody Caldwell, Corey Perry donated a signed jersey and $5,000 to a fundraiser in his honor.

Corey Perry remembers skating in summer pickup games in his native Peterborough, Ontario with goalie Cody Caldwell just a few years ago.

Recently, Perry was devastated to find out that Caldwell had been paralyzed in a swimming accident and the Ducks right wing wanted to do anything he could to help.

Contacted by a committee hoping to get a signed jersey of his to auction off at a fundraiser in Caldwell’s honor to be held on Oct. 3, Perry quickly agreed and also donated an additional $5,000.

“It's going to a good cause,” Perry said. “Anything I can do to help Cody and his family.”

A 20-year-old former goaltender for the Peterborough Minor Petes, Caldwell suffered two broken vertebrae in a diving accident in Alberta on June 27. Recovering in a Calgary hospital, Caldwell may not walk again, but he is slowly getting the use of his hands back.

Along with knowing Caldwell personally from summer hockey in Canada, Perry said his brother, Adam, also attended Crestwood Secondary School with him.

“It hits home when something like this happens to a friend,” Corey said. “He has the rest of his life in front of him. It's very unfortunate.”

On the committee organizing the benefit for Caldwell, Rob McCrae was overwhelmed with Perry’s donation.

“It’s just amazing,” McCrae said.
