Bergeron was cut by the Blue Jackets on Monday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports. Bergeron spent the last three seasons playing with Zurich SC of the Swiss Elite League and appears destined for a return abroad after failing to secure a permanent contract with Columbus. The 35-year-old's most recent NHL stint came back in 2012-13 when he played in 25 games between the Lightning and Hurricanes in which he garnered a nine points. Even if he can find a new home in the majors, the blueliner offers next to nothing in terms of value and should be left off most fantasy lineups.
Bergeron will try out for the Blue Jackets, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Now there's a name we haven't heard in awhile. Bergeron has 490 career NHL games (235 points) under his belt, but he'd been with Zurich SC of Swiss National League-A the past three years. Columbus was pitiful with the man advantage last season, converting just 17.3 percent of its chances, so there's merit to signing the 35-year-old to a professional tryout agreement -- the journeyman collected 44 goals and 80 assists on the power play over 10 years in the NHL.
