Thomas Fleischmann has reportedly chosen to accept a professional tryout with the Minnesota Wild.
Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman tweeted the news today, noting that Fleischmann has a history with Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau. The two were together for a number of seasons in Washington, preceded by a couple of seasons with AHL Hershey.
Fleischmann’s best NHL season under Boudreau came in 2009-10 when he had 23 goals and 28 assists in 69 games. The Capitals traded him to Colorado the following season, in return for defenseman Scott Hannan.
Since the start of 2013-14, Fleischmann has just 30 goals in 222 games, for four different teams. He split last season between Montreal and Chicago.
According to Fleischmann’s agent, eight teams were willing to give the 32-year-old winger a tryout.
