Former Florida Panthers forwards Colton Sceviour and Scott Wilson have training camp invitations as the two players have been offered professional tryouts.
Colton Sceviour, who was traded from the Panthers to the Penguins as part of the Mike Matheson/Patric Hornqvist deal last September, signed a PTO with the Edmonton Oilers.
Wilson, who did not appear in a game with the Panthers last season, will join Chris Driedger and Alex Wennberg at Seattle Kraken camp.
Sceviour, 32, scored five goals with 10 points in 46 games with the Penguins last year.
A solid fourth-line contributor who showed he could play up in the lineup when needed in Florida, Sceviour spent four seasons with the Panthers from 2016-20.
Wilson, 29, spent the bulk of his 2021 season on the Florida taxi squad. He did score three points in eight games with AHL Syracuse.
If Wilson does sign a two-way deal with the Kraken and starts the season in the minors, he would be reunited with some former Florida teammates as Seattle and the Panthers will be sharing AHL Charlotte this season.
