Charismatic goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov continues to wait for an offer from an NHL team, after his camp tryout with Las Vegas in the ECHL concluded, according to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com.
“Bryz will train at home in [New Jersey] until the right NHL job comes around,” Bryzgalov’s agent Ritch Winter told ESPN.com.
“He has turned down one NHL offer recently and will wait until the right opportunity presents itself. There is no rush. He is in great shape and ready to go when the right opportunity arises.”
Bryzgalov played only two seasons with the Flyers after signing a nine-year, $51 million deal in 2011.
The Flyers used one of their two compliance buyouts on Bryzgalov this summer.
As a member of the Flyers, Bryzgalov won 52 regular season games in 99 games played. He struggled mightily last season, posting a 19-17-3-1 record.
