Perry Named to 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend
The National Hockey League has named right wing Corey Perry to the 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend, taking place in Ottawa, Ontario from Jan. 26-29. The 2010-11 Hart Memorial Trophy winner as the NHL’s most valuable player, Perry will make his third career All-Star appearance (also 2008 & 2011).

Perry has totaled 18 goals (first on the Ducks) and 35 points in 41 games played for Anaheim.
Perry, 26 (5/16/85), has appeared in all 41 games for the Ducks in 2011-12, scoring 18-17=35 points, including his fourth career hat trick this past Sunday (Jan. 8) in a 7-4 win over Columbus at Honda Center. Perry currently ranks tied for second in the NHL in power play goals (9). The Peterborough, Ontario native leads the Ducks in goals and power play goals, and ranks second in points. He scored his 400th career point, an assist on Bobby Ryan’s shorthanded goal on Jan. 6 vs. the New York Islanders. In addition, Perry’s consecutive games played streak stands at 244, currently ranking seventh on the NHL’s “Iron Man” list. His streak dates back to Jan. 11, 2009.

On June 22, 2011, Perry was named the first player from a Southern California team to win the Hart Memorial Trophy since Hall-of-Famer Wayne Gretzky earned the honor with Los Angeles in 1989. The 6-3, 210-pound winger also became just the third player from a California team to win the Hart, joining Gretzky and San Jose’s Joe Thornton (2006). Perry led the NHL in goal scoring in 2010-11 with 50, winning the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the league’s top goal scorer. He co-led the NHL with 11 game-winning goals while also leading in third-period tallies (21) and road goals (28). Perry became the third player in franchise history to reach the 50-goal mark and the first in the Western Conference to score 50-or-more since Calgary’s Jarome Iginla in 2007-08 (50).

Teemu Selanne elected to decline an All-Star Game invitation so that Perry could represent the Ducks.

"It's better that Perry goes," Selanne said. "This is the best way to do it. I've been there many times, and it's a great opporutnity for a young player. Perry was MVP last year and it's important that he's there." 

Said Perry, "He says it could be his last year, so it surprised me. But that's the way he is. When something comes up for somebody else, he's going to help them get there, and that's what he did. That's the type of guy he is, and he's always been that way. Going near the end of his career, it means something to me."

Perry has family in Ottawa, and this will be a chance to play in front of them. “I’m excited,” he said. ”My dad’s side is all in Ottawa. It’s going to be kind of a homecoming for me. It’s special.”
