Unrestricted free-agent forward Jiri Tlusty is reportedly uninterested in attending an NHL training camp on a tryout.

Tlusty has rejected five professional tryout contract offers in search of a guaranteed deal, and he also has options to play in the KHL, TVA's Renaud Lavoie reports.

The 27-year-old scored one goal and added seven assists in 20 games with the Winnipeg Jets last season after being dealt by the Carolina Hurricanes for a pair of draft picks in February.

Tlusty played parts of six seasons with the Hurricanes after spending his first three years with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was Toronto's 13th overall pick in 2006.
