After months of being out on the NHL’s open market, (now former) Florida Panthers winger Mike Hoffman has settled on a home — and it is with the St. Louis Blues.
According to the Blues, Hoffman is coming — officially, at least — on the cheap.
He has agreed to a professional tryout (PTO) with the Blues which means he is going to training camp without getting paid.
Something strange in saying that, eh?
Hoffman, 31, led the Panthers in goals in each of the two seasons he played in South Florida and was a free agent for the first time and the best he could score was a PTO?
Well, there’s more to this than what is on the surface.
