After 14 years of blood, sweat, and dirty hits with the Anaheim Ducks, Dallas Stars winger Corey Perry visited his former home as part of the opposition for the first time in his career.

Even though he wasn’t able to participate in the action due to an earlier suspension, the 34-year-old forward was honoured by the Ducks with a video tribute.

From the 2007 Stanley Cup championship, to a Hart Trophy, and eventually being bought out last summer, Perry has certainly seen it all through his 14-year journey as a member of the Ducks.

Through his 988 games played for the Ducks organization, Perry scored 372 goals and 776 points.
