UFA Signing: Marc-Andre Bergeron
After losing veteran defenseman Andrei Markov for at least a month the Montreal Canadiens immediately sent out for some support. On Tuesday they signed Former Islander blueliner and unrestricted free agent Marc-Andre Bergeron to a 1 year deal. MAB played 72 games for Minnesota last year notching 14 goals (7 powerplay) and 18 assists for 32 points, a semi-resurgence after a trade from the Isles to Anaheim the season before landed the hard shooter in the minors. Bergeron has played in 339 games scoring 62 goals (36 powerplay) a 98 assists for 160 points. He has suited up for the Oilers, Isles, Ducks and Wild before joining his second Canadian squad. Financial terms of the deal are not yet known. We wish Marc-Andre the best on his new team.
