Adam Perry (born January 12, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey winger currently playing for the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL. His older brother, Corey Perry, is a National Hockey League (NHL) player with the Anaheim Ducks.
Perry began his junior hockey career with the Peterborough Bees of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League (OPJHL) for two seasons before joining the major junior ranks with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Perry helped capture a Memorial Cup championship with the Knights playing alongside his brother, Corey, in 2005. He was eligible for the 2005 NHL Entry Draft that summer, but was skipped over. Perry went on to play four seasons with the Knights, before being traded to the Belleville Bulls in his fourth and final OHL season.
Undrafted by an NHL club, the Phoenix Coyotes signed Perry to an American Hockey League (AHL) contract with the San Antonio Rampage on August 6, 2008. However, after beginning the season in San Antonio, he was assigned to the Arizona Sundogs of the CHL. He scored 53 points in 40 games with the Sundogs in his first professional season, third among CHL rookies, and was nominated for league rookie of the year. Fellow nominees include Darryl Smith of the Laredo Bucks, Jeff Pierce of the Odessa Jackalopes, Torren Delforte of the New Mexico Scorpions and Nicolas Dumoulin of the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees.
