With training camps starting around the NHL in just a few days, we've reached the start of professional tryout offer signings. 

The Edmonton Oilers signed veteran winger Colton Sceviour to a PTO on Wednesday. Sceviour had 10 points in 46 regular-season games with the Pittsburgh Penguins last year. 

Sceviour comes in as a depth forward with plenty of big-league experience. It remains to be seen if he will be the only player coming into Oilers camp on a PTO. 

The move by the Oilers does mean it will be a battle within the franchise when it comes to roster spots with limited space among the third and fourth line. 

If Sceviour is able to secure a deal with the big club, he's a player that has the ability to bring physicality and a two-way presence to a team that needs a bit of help.
