Fantasy Summary

Berglund’s upside is that of a two-way defenseman, although he will likely bring more defensive value to his professional team than he will offensive value to your fantasy team. He has a good shot and would bring additional value in leagues that count plus-minus.

Observations

November 2019 – After returning to the Allsvenskan for another season, Berglund appears to be in the midst of a modest breakout. He has managed five goals and 12 points through 20 games thus far, adding 43 shots on goal and a rating of plus-15. His point total is one shy of his 2018-2019 mark but was accomplished in 30 fewer games. His average ice time has increased by nearly two minutes, yet is still fourth among MODO blueliners. Despite the low ice time, Berglund sits tied for fourth in the league for production among defensemen. Look for the Bruins to bring sign him to an entry-level contract as early as this offseason. Chris Mazza

March 2019 – Berglund was signed to an amateur tryout contract by the Providence Bruins after his season ended in the Allsvenskan. He finished third among MODO defensemen with 13 points in 50 games, despite playing an average of just 14:38 per game (6th among the team’s D-men). He should give Providence a boost during their upcoming playoff run, after which he will likely sign his entry-level contract with Boston. Chris Mazza

November 2018 – After being selected by the Bruins in the seventh round of the 2017 NHL Draft, Berglund had a successful 2017-2018 season for the MODO J20 team, finishing with 18 points in 23 games and earned a call-up to their main squad. He has played this year exclusively with the main Allsvenskan club, managing five points through their first 16 games. Berglund has a long way to go before he can be considered a real NHL and fantasy threat, but his development this season should be monitored as he is young, raw, and has the opportunity to learn from his teammate and ex-NHLer Tobias Enstrom. Chris Mazza
