Various sources report the Nashville Predators have signed winger Niclas Bergfors to a one-year, $575K contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The well-travelled Bergfors joins his fourth team in three seasons, having bounced from the Devils to the Thrashers to the Panthers. A promising rookie season – 21 goals and 44 points split between the Devils and Thrashers – was followed by a 36 point sophomore performance split between the Thrashers and Panthers. Consistency has been Bergfors problem, but he’s going to a team which has a head coach known for getting the best out of his players. An affordable gamble on the part of the Predators.
