When asked about the reception he is expecting from Dallas Stars fans on opening night during his July 1 conference call with the media, hockey-reference.com/players/p/perryco01 took a moment to laugh.
“We’ve had so many battles, that’s for sure,” Perry said. “I think once they get to know me and watch me on a nightly basis and not just playing against them, it’s going to be a good fit. I’m excited to get to Dallas and be a part of that community and organization.”
That’s a nearly perfect answer coming from a player that has been adamantly disliked by Stars fans for the better part of a decade.
