Still without a contract for the season starting tonight in the NHL, the Quebecer forward, Maxime Comtois, received a professional tryout from the Vegas Golden Knights during training camp.

Although he performed very well in the preseason games, many observers doubted he could secure a spot in Bruce Cassidy's lineup because of the number of forwards already signed and the team's salary cap situation.

Unfortunately for the 24-year-old left winger, the head coach of the Golden Knights confirmed earlier this afternoon that Maxime Comtois had been released from his professional tryout and would not receive a contract for the 2023-2024 season.

"Bruce Cassidy stated that Maxime Comtois was released from his professional tryout, yesterday.


He added that the team was very pleased with Cotter and Dorofeyev's performances in the preseason and that there were not many spots available in the lineup." -Jesse Granger

So, just hours away from the first game of the year, Maxime Comtois is without a team, and his future in the NHL seems increasingly uncertain. Do you think he will manage to find a new team in the coming days? One thing's for sure, it's a situation to closely watch!

Selected in the second round of the 2017 draft, the Longueuil-born forward spent the last five seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, tallying 38 goals and 48 assists (86 points) in 210 games. Notably, he had an excellent season in 2020-2021, with an impressive 33 points in just 55 games.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT MAXIME COMTOIS WILL FIND A NEW TEAM IN THE COMING WEEKS?
