Bergenheim was released from his professional tryout agreement Thursday, James Mirtle of TSN 1050 reports. Bergenheim played last season for Bern SC of the Swiss League where he recorded 13 points over 21 games. However, at 36 years old and having never posted a 30-point plus campaign in his NHL career, the Ducks were apparently not impressed enough to keep him on their active roster. The left winger will now head to free agency.
Bergenheim will sign a three-year deal with Swiss league SC Bern on Thursday, TSN's Frank Seravalli reports. After failing to land an NHL gig out of training camp, Bergenheim's deal with the foreign club reportedly includes a clause that will give him the option to opt out of his contract in order to return to the NHL each offseason, plus his net pay apparently would be similar to what he would make in the NHL. Bergenheim, who has appeared in 506 career NHL games, played for both the Panthers and Wild last season, adding nine goals and 10 assists in 56 games between the two squads.
