Calgary Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter announced today that Theoren Fleury has been invited to attend the Flames 2009 Training Camp on a try-out basis.

"Once we determined that Theoren was training to our standards and the League permitted his return to on-ice competition, it wasn't a hard decision for us to provide him with this opportunity," said Sutter. "In the history of our franchise, he is among the top players all-time and regardless of what happens; he can finish as an active player. This is a day-to-day thing and we will develop our expectations over the course of training camp."

"I am both thankful and very excited to be given this opportunity by Darryl and the Flames organization," said Fleury. "I intend to come to camp today with a strong work ethic, a positive attitude and to be treated like any other member of the group."

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
