Eight teams have offered forward Thomas Fleischmann a professional tryout agreement, his agent, Rich Evans, told News 1130 Sports in Vancouver.
Evans didn’t name any of the eight teams.
Fleischmann, 32, is an unrestricted free agent who split last season between Montreal and Chicago. He only appeared in four of seven playoff games for the Blackhawks, registering no points and just three shots on goal. He was a healthy scratch for Games 5, 6, and 7 versus the Blues.
Since the start of 2013-14, Fleischmann has just 30 goals in 222 games, for four different teams. He had a career-high 27 goals for the Panthers in 2011-12.
The Blackhawks acquired Fleischmann, along with winger Dale Weise, from the Montreal Canadiens just prior to last season’s trade deadline. The cost was Phillip Danault and a second-round draft pick in 2018.
Fleischmann is no stranger to his current situation. He attended Canadiens camp on a tryout last year, eventually earning a one-year, $750,000 contract.
