Thrashers, Bergfors agree to terms
According to a report by ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun, the Thrashers and Niclas Bergfors have agreed on a one-year contract for the 2010-11 season.
The Atlanta Thrashers have signed restricted free-agent forward Niclas Bergfors to a new contract. Terms of the deal were not revealed, but an earlier ESPN.com report claimed Bergfors signed a one-year, $900,000 contract.

Bergfors, 23, was part of the deal last season that sent Ilya Kovalchuk to the New Jersey Devils. In 27 games with Atlanta, Bergfors had 8 goals and 17 points. He had 13 goals and 27 points in 54 games with the Devils prior to the trade.

His 21 goals and 44 points in 81 games total earned him a spot on the NHL All-Rookie Team.

The Devils' 2005 first-round pick, Bergfors has 22 goals and 45 points in 90 NHL games spread over parts of three seasons.


Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
