As a four-year star at Boston University, where he won an NCAA title, and a Burlington, Mass., native, Jay Pandolfo has always been popular in Boston hockey circles even though he spent his entire NHL career with New Jersey.
Now the local boy could potentially be coming home.
A report at ESPNBoston.com says that general manager Peter Chiarelli has discussed a potential tryout invitation for Pandolfo. Chiarelli told that site that he has issued an invitation to one player and spoken to three others about possibly attending camp.
The 36-year-old Pandolfo skated in just 12 games last season with Springfield of the AHL. The previous year he appeared in just 52 games for New Jersey.
