(AP) — The St. Louis Blues signed one of the top free agents left on the market to a professional tryout agreement for training camp.

The team announced the deal with winger Mike Hoffman on Sunday. While it came as a surprise that Hoffman didn’t sign a guaranteed contract for the season, the Blues’ salary cap situation sets up for him to get one before opening night. Hoffman is coming off a 29-goal season with the Florida Panthers.

The Washington Capitals are also bringing veteran goaltender Craig Anderson to training camp on a tryout, and the Panthers are doing the same with defenseman Kevin Connauton.
