Tomas Vokoun G PIT 1 Month

Tomas Vokoun wants to play for at least one more season.

Vokoun isn't likely to be re-signed by the Pittsburgh Penguins, but he might find some suitors on the open market. He wasn't able to play in the NHL in 2013-14 due to blood clots, but he should be an effective backup goaltender next season if he's healthy.

Tomas Vokoun will likely become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Vokoun missed the entire season with blood clots in his pelvis. The blood clots were discovered in July 2013 and Vokoun, who was on his second and final year of his contract, was forced to the sidelines by the Penguins medical staff until he was allowed to practice during the Olympic break. He will become an unrestricted free agent and it remains to be seen if any NHL team will be interested in the 37-year-old backup.

No matter what happens, there's a good chance that this will be Tomas Vokoun's (blood clot) last season.

Vokoun acknowledged as much when he was talking about what role he might have with the Penguins if his current AHL conditioning stint goes well. "That's up to the coaches," Vokoun said. "When we talked back in January, I told them I'm open-minded. Regardless of what happened, I was 90 percent sure it was going to be my last season anyway. I'm here to help. It seems like the coaches and the management want me to be around. Whatever my role is, I'm fine either way." Vokoun is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He has 300 wins, a 2.55 GAA, and .917 save percentage in 700 career games.

Tomas Vokoun (blood clots) will report to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday to begin a conditioning stint.

The future of Vokoun's playing career was put into question after suffering blood clots in his pelvis and even now it's not clear if he'll play in another NHL game. The Penguins plan to test him at the minor league level to see how his body responds and go from there. It's worth adding that the 37-year-old forward is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

It is looking more and more remote that Tomas Vokoun (blood clots) will play in a game this season.

Although he has been practising with his teammates and ramping up his workouts he is still a long way from playing and time is running out in the regular season. In addition, the Penguins are happy with Jeff Zatkoff as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup. Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma described Vokoun's chances of playing as "just a mere possibility at this point in time". If you have not done so long ago, cut Vokoun now.

Tomas Vokoun was back at practice on Wednesday for the first time since September when he had a medical procedure to dissolve a blood clot in his pelvis.

"It's nice ... to get some shots," he said. "I'm just happy to be back on the ice and be with the guys. Feeling pretty good. My agenda is to practice and see how I feel and how it goes. We'll see. I'm trying to get back, see how I feel, making sure my health holds up. Obviously, [being out] for five months, you never know." Jeff Zatkoff has performed well enough as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup this season and Vokoun said he won't come back unless he feels he can help out the team.
