It appears that Alex Kovalev is ready for another shot at the National Hockey League.

The former NHL veteran told TVA Sports this week that he's set to return to North America after playing in the Kontinental Hockey League last season and has already had tryout offers.

"I've received invitations to training camps and hopefully (can) begin skating towards the end of August to be ready for next season (in the NHL)," he told the Quebec-based sports channel.

Kovalev, who has been training in Switzerland, did not say which NHL teams offered him a tryout.

The 39-year-old played last season in the KHL with Atlant Mytishchi scoring a goal and five assists in 22 games. In 18 NHL seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins, Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers, he scored 1,024 points in 1,302 games.
