CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -The Calgary Flames have invited former All-Star Theo Fleury to training camp on a tryout basis.
General manager Darryl Sutter announced the move in a statement before the start of camp on Saturday.
Fleury lives in Calgary and began his career with the Flames, playing 11 seasons for them. His last season was with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2002-03, after which he was suspended indefinitely for violating the NHL's substance abuse policy.
The 41-year-old Fleury says he's sober and asked for reinstatement. It was granted by the NHL and NHL Players' Association late Thursday.
He had 455 goals and 633 assists in over 1,000 career games with Calgary, Colorado Avalanche, New York Rangers and Chicago between 1988 and 2003.
