from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,

Gilbert Brule will in fact be getting that second chance at the NHL he was hoping for when training camp opens next month.

The former Vancouver Giants star has confirmed earlier rumblings that he has signed a professional tryout agreement with the Phoenix Coyotes, the team to which he was slated to return at the conclusion of last season’s lockout.

Brule stepped away from hockey to get his life in order.
