Free agent forward Gilbert Brule is reportedly trying to make a comeback to the National Hockey League.

According to the Province's Tony Gallagher, the 26-year-old will be at the Phoenix Coyotes' training camp in September.

Drafted sixth overall by the Blue Jackets in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Brule was dealt to the Edmonton Oilers following two seasons in Columbus.

He spent three seasons with the Oilers before the Coyotes claimed him off re-entry waivers on January 10, 2012.

After not being re-signed by the Coyotes following the 2011-2012 season, the Edmonton native inked a one-year deal with ZSC Lions in the Swiss League. He played 14 games with the Lions and recorded six assists before being released.

Brule had a career-high 17 goals and 20 assists in 65 games with the Edmonton Oilers in 2010-11.
