Kyle Wellwood has signed a one-month contract with EV Zug, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.

Unable to secure a pro tryout offer, the 30-year old forward appears to be looking to do some auditioning overseas, hoping to catch the eye of an NHL club.

Wellwood scored six goals and nine assists in 39 games for the Winnipeg Jets last season, after putting up career highs in goals (18) and assists (29) during the 2011-12 NHL season.
