After acquiring defenseman Brett Lebda
from Toronto earlier in the day, Nashville made another move Sunday when general manager David Poile announced the team have agreed to a one-year contract with forward Niclas Bergfors
The contract will pay Bergfors $575,000 for the 2011-12 season.
Bergfors, 24, scored 12 goals and added 24 assists in 72 games last year with the Atlanta Thrashers
and Florida Panthers
. Bergfors, who was traded from Atlanta to Florida midway through the 2010-11 season, originally came to Atlanta as one of the key pieces in New Jersey's package for winger Ilya Kovalchuk
in February 2010.
During the 2009-10 season, Bergfors had 21 goals and 23 assists, which earned him a spot on the NHL's All-Rookie Team that season.
