Brandon Prust could return to Europe if he doesn't get an NHL contract for the 2017-18 campaign.

Prust will report to training camp with Los Angeles on a professional tryout and his main focus will be earning a spot with the Kings.

Prust has collected 115 points and 1,036 penalty minutes over his career.

According to Claude Lemieux, who is Brandon Prust's agent, said the veteran winger is close to signing with a team in the DEL of Germany.

That is if a new deal from Toronto doesn't come "in the next few days." Considering the youth movement the Maple Leafs have undergone and the fact that Prust was released from his PTO with them before the season began, it looks like he's heading overseas.

Brandon Prust says he's always wanted to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The veteran forward signed a professional tryout with the club on Monday night. "Growing up a Leafs fan, I know that's kind of where my heart is," said Prust. "I've always wanted to play for the Leafs. I figure this will be a great opportunity for me. Wendel (Clark) was my man. I always want to play like him and be like him. He had skill, he was tough as nails and he was a great leader. That's the guy I idolized growing up as a Leafs fan. I've watched Toronto's playoff runs and I know all about their history. To be a part of it will be amazing."
