This is a very wild story coming out of Chicago.
It is a story that is very similar to the Delonte West and LeBron James story from many years ago, where people believe West had relations with LeBron’s mom.
In this case, Corey Perry was cut from the Blackhawks for allegedly having relations with young superstar teammate Connor Bedard’s mom, Melanie.
Here is what the GM had to say via TMZ Sports.
Chicago Blackhawks GM Kyle Davidson addressed the wild rumors surrounding Corey Perry shortly after he was kicked off the team … saying the winger’s contract termination had nothing to do with superstar Connor Bedard’s mother.
Perry was placed on unconditional waivers following an internal investigation on Tuesday … in which the team determined he “engaged in conduct that is unacceptable” and violated the terms of his contract and the Blackhawks’ internal policies.
The move came on the heels of speculation Perry was involved in a personal relationship with Bedard’s mom, Melanie … and while the talk didn’t hold much weight, many ran with it on social media.
Davidson cleared the air after the team washed its hands of Perry.
Davidson referred to the nature of Perry’s violation as a “workplace matter.”
