On the Move: Marc-Andre Bergeron
Defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron was traded on Tuesday by the Anaheim Ducks to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for a 3rd Round pick in the upcoming Entry Draft on June 20. Bergeron had 8 powerplay tallies last season (tied for 6th league-wide) in stints with the Islanders and Ducks. Bergeron had 19 points (9 goals, 10 assists) last season on 46 games with the Isles and 9 with Anaheim. He never took to the Anaheim roster despite carrying a cannon for a shot. Minnesota will be his 4th team in 3 years having played for Edmonton from 2002-2007, the Isles from 2007-08 and Ducks in 2008. On 267 career games Bergeron has 128 points on 48 goals and 80 assists. We here at FIW wish Bergeron the best with his new team up North.
