Veteran Podollan invited to Wings' camp

Jason Podollan, a much-travelled forward with NHL experience, has been invited to Detroit Red Wings' training camp next month in Traverse City.

Podollan, 30, played for the old Detroit Vipers during the 2000-2001 season. He finished last year with the Oji Paper of the Asian League over in Japan.

A former 31st overall pick of the Florida Panthers in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, Podollan has played 41 games in the NHL with Los Angeles, Toronto and Florida with one goal and five assists for his efforts.

With the Vipers, Podollan recorded 15 goals among 31 points and 98 penalty minutes in 63 games before being traded to Manitoba at the IHL's trade deadline.
