Forward Brandon Prust, who has not played in the NHL since 2015-16, will attend training camp with the Los Angeles Kings on a professional tryout, LA Kings Insider reported Friday.

Prust, 33, attended training camp with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season but was not offered a contract. He signed with Nurnberg of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga, the top professional league in Germany, and had eight points (three goals, five assists) and 567 penalty minutes in 29 games.

Two seasons ago, Prust had seven points (one goal, six assists) in 35 games with the Vancouver Canucks. He missed the final month of the season with an ankle injury.

Prust, a third-round pick (No. 70) by the Calgary Flames in the 2004 NHL Draft, has 115 points (40 goals, 75 assists) and 1,036 penalty minutes in 486 games in nine NHL seasons with the Flames, Canucks, Arizona Coyotes, New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens. He also has 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in 53 career Stanley Cup Playoff games.
