Junior

Perry played for the AAA Petes in Peterborough and won the OHL Cup with his team in the 2000–01 season. That year, he was drafted fifth overall into the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) by the London Knights in the 2001 Priority Draft. He immediately produced at a point-per-game pace with the Knights, recording 59 points in 60 games in his rookie season. The following year, his NHL draft year, Perry improved to 78 points and was selected 28th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Anaheim Ducks. Perry remained with the Knights for two more seasons and was nearly traded by the Ducks in the NHL season immediately after his draft. It was reported that Perry was to be sent to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Mike Comrie, but the trade never materialized as Oilers' GM Kevin Lowe asked Comrie to repay a portion of his bonus money.

Entering his fourth and final year with the Knights in 2004–05, Perry scored a junior career high 130 points in 60 games. He went on to post an additional 38 points in the post-season to capture the J. Ross Robertson Cup as OHL champions, en route to a Memorial Cup championship.

Anaheim Ducks

Perry made his debut with the Ducks the following season, in 2005–06, however, he was sent down to the American Hockey League (AHL) early in the year, along with fellow rookie and future linemate Ryan Getzlaf. Perry and Getzlaf combined for 67 points in 36 games with the Portland Pirates and were subsequently called back to the Ducks. Perry finished his rookie season with 25 points in 56 games with Anaheim. In 2006–07, Perry improved to 44 points in a full 82 games, playing with Ryan Getzlaf and Dustin Penner on a combination dubbed the "Kid Line". He went on in the playoffs to win a Stanley Cup championship with the Ducks, recording 15 points in 21 games.

The following year, in 2007–08, Perry increased his totals to 29 goals and 54 points and was named to his first NHL All-Star Game as an injury replacement along with Scott Niedermayer to join Chris Pronger and Ryan Getzlaf as four Ducks on the Western Conference squad. In the off-season, on July 1, 2008, Perry signed a five-year contract extension with the Ducks worth $26.625 million – identical to a deal Getzlaf had agreed to the previous off-season. 2008–09 was a breakout year for Perry. He led the Ducks with 32 goals, and finished second on the team with 72 points.
