Breaking...Berglund, Blues Agree to Deal in Principle
Sources confirm the St. Louis Blues have agreed in principle on a one-year contract with center Patrik Berglund.
Berglund who tied for the team lead with 17 goals this season, has two 20 goal seasons and a 19 goal season in his five-year NHL career.
Word is both sides discussed a long-term contract but Berglund appears comfortable with signing the one-year deal.
Berglund’s salary will likely fall somewhere between the $3 million David Perron made last season and the $3.375 Oshie earned. Both Perron and Oshie were in the first year of long-term contracts this past year.
Berglund, 25, was drafted by the Blues in the first round back in 2006.
