Martin Havlat hopes to be back in the NHL this coming season.

According to agent Allan Walsh, Havlat has started skating and training with HC Kometa Brno of the Czech Extraliga. The veteran intends to play in the NHL, so he could be looking for a training camp invite. Havlat appeared in just two games with St. Louis last season after he was signed in November and he contributed one goal.

Martin Havlat has left the St. Louis Blues for personal reasons.

St. Louis has placed Havlat on unconditional waivers so that they can release him, as per his request. He inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Blues last week. Since then he's played in two games for the Blues and scored one goal.

Martin Havlat scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday’s 2-0 win over New Jersey.

The Blues brought Havlat in on a PTO and officially signed him on Friday. He was a healthy scratch in St. Louis’ last game, but he delivered in a big way against the Devils. Scott Gomez and Troy Brouwer picked up the assists on Havlat’s first of the season. Don’t count on the veteran putting up big numbers down the stretch. He’ll serve as more of a depth player. Mangus Paajarvi also scored his first goal of the season in the win.

Martin Havlat will make his debut for the Blues on Tuesday night against his most recent former club, the Devils.

Havlat is expected to skate to the right of Dmitrij Jaskin and Kyle Brodziak on the Blues' fourth line, which doesn't suggest he'll have much fantasy value. Havlat has collected 81 points over his last 167 games since 2011-12. Now injury worn and 34-years-old, we shouldn't expect him to have much value beyond the occasional hot streak.

Martin Havlat will make his St. Louis debut on Tuesday against the New Jersey Devils.

Martin Havlat and Robert Bortuzzo will be scratched for Saturday's tilt with Nashville.

With just 11 PIMs, 13 hits, and 17 blocks through 10 games this season, Bortuzzo has not lived up to his physical status. Meaning he isn't much of a fantasy asset until further notice.

Martin Havlat's newly inked contract with the St. Louis Blues is a two-way deal.

Havlat comes with a $600,000 annual cap hit in the NHL. When he's in the minors, he'll earn $200,000 annually. For now he's expected to serve as a depth forward while the Blues cope with injuries.

Martin Havlat has signed a one-year deal with the St. Louis Blues.

Havlat had been auditioning after being handed a professional tryout offer. St. Louis has been battered by injuries this season and can consequently use the veteran forward for depth purposes. Havlat had five goals and 14 points in 40 games with New Jersey in 2014-15.

Martin Havlat has been invited to join the St. Louis Blues on a professional tryout.

He generated five goals and nine assists in 40 regular season games with New Jersey last season. Havlat attended training camp with the Florida Panthers on a professional tryout, but he was unable to land a contract.

According to beat reporter George Richards, the Florida Panthers won't be signing forward Martin Havlat.

The veteran attended Panthers' camp on a professional tryout. The decision not to sign Havlat isn't surprising. The 34-year-old wasn't productive with New Jersey last year and he hasn't been for quite some time. He will continue to have a hard time finding work in the NHL. His best bet may be to continue his career overseas.

Martin Havlat is still fighting for a roster spot but won't get a chance to play in the Panthers' pre-season finale Saturday night.

This is not a good sign for the veteran. Havlat was in camp on a professional tryout and is battling Connor Brickley, Lawson Crouse, Garrett Wilson and Quinton Howden for a roster spot. It looks as if Crouse and Brickley have a leg up on the others. Stay tuned.

Martin Havlat, who is attending camp on a professional tryout, still has a chance to claim a roster spot with Florida.

It seems that Florida GM Dale Tallon has only one roster spot for Martin Havlat and David Booth.

The two veterans are in camp on a professional tryout basis. Tallon has intimated that only one will make the team. Keep an eye on this situation as the winner of this battle may line up alongside Nick Bjugstad on the Cats' second line.

Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon wants to ramp up the competition during training camp.

Tallon has handed out professional tryouts to veterans David Booth and Martin Havlat. The Panthers GM doesn't want young players to think that they are going to be handed a roster spot, so he's hoping that veterans like Booth and Havlat will push those guys. "They both wanted to come here and show their wares,’’ Tallon said. "They have history and knowledge. You never know about injuries, and we have a lot of young guys. If they’re not ready, that’s fine. We have protection. It’s all good. Competition doesn’t hurt anyone. Everyone has to work for a job. We’re not just going to give them to the kids because they’re kids."
