2021-22 NHL PTO Tracker: James Neal, Brian Boyle Among Players Signed For Pro Tryouts

As the schedule moves toward the start of NHL training camp, several veteran guys are still waiting for a contract that will lock them out for the 2021-22 season. Instead of sitting at home and watching the latest episodes of “Ted Lasso,” several crafty veterans have signed professional trial agreements (PTOs) to find a suitor.

Several players, for example James Neal and Bobby Ryan, are expected to find NHL jobs for the season. Other guys are bubble depth signings to push the youngsters to improve their games in camp. They could still get a deal if they improve their game as well, as the PTO allows players to practice and play in exhibition games.

Below are all of the top players that have been announced or are reportedly attending 2021 team training camps in PTO:
