It will be interesting to see if he continues to ply his trade in the NHL or perhaps makes the jump to Europe.

      Analysis: Bergfors split the 2010-11 season between Atlanta and Florida, recording 36 points (including 12 goals) in 72 games. That was a step down from the 21 goals and 44 points he recorded as a rookie in 81 2009-10 contests, but given the price tag, this looks like a bargain for the Preds.
