Corey Perry has apologized for "inappropriate and wrong" behavior that led the Chicago Blackhawks to terminate his contract this week.

"I would like to sincerely apologize to the entire Chicago Blackhawks organization, including ownership, management, coaches, trainers, employees, and my teammates. I would also like to apologize to my fans and my family. I feel embarrassed, and I have let you all down," Perry said in a statement released to the media Thursday.
