According to James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail, Adam Pardy and Justin Fontaine weren’t the only two players to receive professional tryouts today. Eric Nystrom and Yan Stastny have both signed with St. Louis, while Zach Boychuk has signed with Arizona.
Nystrom, the most well-known of the bunch, has played in 593 NHL games over ten seasons, scoring 123 points along the way. The winger is coming off a career-low seven points last season, recording zero assists in 46 games for Nashville.
Stastny, the elder brother of St. Louis standout Paul Stastny and son of Hall of Famer Peter Stastny, has never had the raw talent or success of his family members. Never really being able to crack an NHL lineup for long, he’s spent the last few seasons in Europe, playing in the KHL, DEL and SEL.
Boychuk on the other hand, has performed very well in his AHL career so far, scoring 317 points since debuting in the league in 2009. Suiting up for 127 NHL games, the 26-year old has yet to find a consistent spot on any team, never playing in more than 31 in a single season.
