Highly Rumored Center Talking Contract Extension
A report from NBC states that the St. Louis Blues are talking contract extension with their 28-year-old center Patrik Berglund. It is quite a surprise as Berglund has been associated with many trade rumors lately. As per the latest paper from the Post-Dispatch:
“The club is believed to be in talks with the center and Berglund told the Post-Dispatch that there is mutual interest from both sides on an extension. His agent, Peter Wallen, did not return a message and Armstrong was unavailable.”
“I would like to still be a Blue,” Berglund said Monday, before the Blues broke for their five days bye. “I think everybody in here and upstairs knows that I want to be a Blue, too.”
Patrik Berglund has been drafted by the St. Louis Blues on the 1 round (25th overall) of the 2006 draft. In 615 games played, he scored 145 goals and registered 141 assists for a total of 286 points. The Swedish player is a good two-way power forward that can bring a physical dimension to his game.
There are certainly a few teams that are disappointed with that news hoping to fit Berglund on their roster by March 1st.
