Gilbert Brule has reportedly agreed to a professional tryout agreement with the Phoenix Coyotes.

He skated in 33 games with the Coyotes in 2011-12 and he contributed 14 points. Brule appeared in 14 contests with the ZSC Lions of the Swiss League last year, but he ended up getting released by the team. Signing a PTO gives him some flexibility if he doesn't earn a roster spot in Phoenix because he can try to find a job in Europe and not be immediately sent to the minors.
