Blues forward Berglund to have shoulder surgery

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues forward Patrik Berglund will have surgery on his right shoulder Friday and will be re-evaluated in four months.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong confirmed Thursday that Berglund, who initially dislocated the shoulder at the end of the 2013-14 regular season, re-aggravated the injury while training during the summer. He also said veteran center Scott Gomez has accepted an invitation to attend training camp on a professional tryout contract.

Berglund, 27, had 12 goals and 27 points in 77 games with the Blues last season and two goals and two assists in six games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Berglund has 118 goals and 247 points in 513 regular-season games and six goals and 13 points in 29 playoff games.

"It's an injury we hoped we were past," Armstrong told "It happened a couple years ago entering the playoffs and he did a great job of rehabbing and getting the strength back. We were hoping it was behind us, but he was training this summer [and] he aggravated the shoulder again. He came right to St. Louis when that happened and our trainers and [Berglund] worked on it and it certainly wasn't going to get any better. So the surgery was necessary."

Anaheim Ducks fantasy hockey outlook

Thursday, 08.27.2015 / 3:00 AM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - Fantasy Insider

As part of's offseason 30 in 30 package, fantasy hockey insiders Matt Cubeta and Pete Jensen will break down each team's fantasy landscape. They will look at the players at the top of the ranks, an undervalued player, an overvalued player, a deep sleeper (players likely ranked outside the top 200 overall players) and the goalie outlook for each NHL team.

Leading the way: Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf

Perry missed 15 games with the mumps and a knee injury, and had a down 2014-15 season by his standards, but he was tied for 10th in goals (33) and provided rare category coverage to salvage his year-end Yahoo rank (68th). He was one of seven players with 55-plus points, 65-plus penalty minutes and 190-plus shots on goal in 2014-15, and saw a production spike in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with 18 points in 16 games.

ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks seem primed for another deep run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but there are areas of concern for the Western Conference regular-season champions.

Some are a recurring theme; another is a product of offseason reshuffling.

Here are three questions facing the Ducks:

Addition of forward Hagelin has Ducks optimistic

ANAHEIM -- Western Conference First Round … Second Round … Conference Final. The Anaheim Ducks have gotten closer to their goal in each of the past three seasons.

Though they've also failed dramatically each year in their attempt to reach the Stanley Cup Final, the Ducks remain one of the conference's top contenders. They've won the Pacific Division three seasons in a row and have at least 50 wins in each of the past two, when they finished with 116 and 109 points.

The Ducks hope a couple of new faces combined with a solid foundation will get them over the final hurdle this season.

Here are four reasons for the Ducks to be optimistic:

ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks have done a good job developing prospects during the past few years. This year's prospects will literally be closer to the NHL because Anaheim moved its American Hockey League affiliate from Norfolk, Va., to San Diego.

The Ducks are well-stocked at center; their most immediate needs are on the wings and defense. Anaheim isn't shy about recalling prospects, so most of their NHL-ready players stand a good chance at playing with the Ducks at some point this season.

Here is a look at the Ducks' top prospects, according to

Ducks reload looking to take last step to Cup Final

Curtis Zupke - Correspondent continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout August.

ANAHEIM -- The progression of the Anaheim Ducks the past three seasons has been impressive. They've advanced deeper into the Stanley Cup Playoffs every year since 2013, a run most teams would love to have.

However, each of those seasons has ended with a Game 7 loss at home, the latest to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2015 Western Conference Final.

"When you go through those things, the only way to gain [experience] is to go through it," Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said. "Hopefully our guys learned some lessons again this year. I learned some things. We can get ready for the next season and approach next year with the same attitude we had at the start of this one, on a mission to get back to have that opportunity again."

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
