The Florida Panthers continue to give out professional tryouts for their upcoming training camp, with the latest one going to Harry Zolnierczyk. The 29-year old is coming off a Stanley Cup Finals appearance with the Nashville Predators, and will try to convince the brass in Florida that he deserves an NHL contract. The Panthers have already invited both Brandon Pirri and Nikolai Belov to camp to battle for the last few roster spots.
Zolnierczyk is an example of a former undrafted college free agent, who has worked hard to keep himself relevant in professional hockey since coming out of Brown University. Bouncing back and forth from the AHL, he played 24 games for the Nashville Predators last season, his fifth NHL team. While proving capable as an AHL scoring threat, he’s never been given much of a chance to play a regular role in the NHL, and will try to show the Panthers that he deserves more than that.
