Louis Blues and is one of a number of players on PTOs this preseason who could stick.As training camps across the NHL open, many free agents still are looking for contracts. Several players, including former all-stars and Stanley Cup winners, have agreed to professional tryout offers in hopes of performing well during the preseason and signing a contract for the season.Whether it's because of an injury or poor play, numerous players accepted PTOs in lieu of contracts hoping to make an impression. Last season,  signed a PTO with the  and ended up being signed by the team in December. His 34 points in 58 games exceeded expectations and tied for third on the team while playing far fewer games than most of his teammates.Here are the 10 players who signed PTOs who have the best chances of making their teams, according to NHL.com:, , GWith backup goalie  sidelined 2-3 months after having surgery to remove a blood clot under his left collarbone Sept. 3, Emery has a good shot to beat out , who has appeared in one regular-season NHL game, as 's backup. Gudlevskis was injured playing in a prospect tournament, but should be available during the preseason, according to general manager Steve Yzerman. Emery, 32, was 10-11-7 with a 3.06 goals-against average and .894 save percentage last season with the  but is an 11-year veteran who won the Stanley Cup with the  in 2013 when he was 17-1-0 as 's backup. He likely will be signed by the Lightning to play in Vasilevskiy's absence., , DThe Blackhawks have Conn Smythe winner  on defense along with , ,  and recently re-signed . The loss of  in free agency and not yet re-signing  (who is on a PTO with the Blackhawks) has left a potential vacancy on the defense, which could be taken by Visnovsky.  and  are in the mix but have combined for 157 games of NHL experience; Visnovsky has played 883 games in his 14-year career. He had 20 points in 53 games with the  last season, and while injuries always are a concern for the 39-year-old, a healthy Visnovsky could find himself on the third defensive pairing for Chicago., , GGustavsson, 30, served as 's backup with the  for parts of the past three seasons and played in 41 games in that span, including 27 in 2013-14. Last season, he was 3-3-1 with a 2.56 goals-against average and .911 save percentage, but sustained a shoulder injury and was overtaken by  as the backup. No longer needed in Detroit, he could figure into the Bruins' plans.  played in 70 games last season and Gustavsson may be a better option to replace last season's backup, , than young goaltenders , 21, or , 23., , CRoy had one goal and 10 points in 26 games with the  last season but then had 11 goals and 22 points in 46 games after being traded to the  Tanner Scheppers Jersey. The 32-year-old is a four-time 20-goal scorer who could make the team especially if center  (hip surgery) is not healthy enough in time for the season opener Oct. 10., , DGonchar had one goal and 14 points with the  and  last season. He's 41, but he has 220 goals and 811 points in 1,301 NHL games. With 102 of those goals coming on the man-advantage, he could provide insurance if power-play quarterback  misses any time. The Penguins used 13 defensemen last season, and the veteran presence of Gonchar, who spent five seasons with the team from 2005-2010 and won a Stanley Cup in 2009, could come in handy., , CSheppard, 27, may not be as gifted as others offensively, but that's not what he brings to teams. He split last season between the  and , and had seven goals and 18 points in 71 games. Columbus has its top three lines pretty well established and Sheppard will have some work to do in camp and preseason to crack the roster. But he's more than capable of being a third- or fourth-line grinder who can add depth., , LWHavlat played in 40 games with the  last season and had 14 points. He's not the player he once was, but had 22 points in 48 games in 2013-14 for the  and could get a vote of confidence in Florida from fellow Czech Republic native . The Panthers have a fairly young group of forwards and it's not out of the question Havlat, 34, earns a spot., , CGomez is an intriguing candidate to fill the roster spot of forward Patrick Berglund, who will miss at least the first three months of the season after having shoulder surgery Aug. 28. Gomez, 35, could improve upon his totals with New Jersey last season with better offensive talent around him in St Jake Smolinski Jersey. Louis, and is a faceoff specialist, taking almost 800 last season. Also working in his favor is that he's a former teammate and good friend of Blues assistant general manager ., , LWAfter three-and-a-half seasons with the , Fleischmann was traded to the  last season http://www.texrangersgear.com/josh-hamilton-jersey. His offensive numbers had declined each season with the Panthers, from 27 goals and 61 points in 2011-12 to seven goals and 21 points in 2014-15. Fleischmann had one goal and six points in 14 games with the Ducks and played in six games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The 31-year-old could be of use to the Canadiens, who are unsure when left wing  will be cleared to play from a knee injury he sustained in July., , LWGlencross, 32, was a reliable two-way player for the  who had back-to-back 20-goal seasons in 2010-11 and 2011-12 but has struggled since then. The Flames traded him to the  prior to the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline and Glencross had four goals and seven points in 18 games and one goal in 10 playoff games. However he struggled to fit in with the Capitals and was a healthy scratch at times. His poor performance down the stretch didn't help him earn a contract, but Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock may take a chance on Glencross if he performs well in camp and during preseason games. The acquisition Thursday of forward  from the  makes Glencross' attempt at a contract that much harder.---It's a huge milestone. I have to thank my teammates. It's hard to do by yourself in this league. It's a special moment for me and this team. Now we just have to keep going.
