Patrik Berglund regains passion for hockey, signs with Sweden's Djurgarden
Ex-NHL forward, who left Sabres in December, excited about 'this new adventure'
Former NHL forward Patrik Berglund is ending his hiatus from hockey by signing a one-year contract with Djurgarden in his native Sweden.
Berglund says he's looking forward to "this new adventure," in a story published on the team's website and translated from Swedish.
Buffalo acquired Berglund as part of a trade that sent centre Ryan O'Reilly to the St. Louis Blues last summer. Berglund, who played his first 10 seasons in St. Louis, would later say he was at peace and had no regrets with his decision to leave Buffalo.
Berglund had just two goals and four points in 23 games with Buffalo. Overall, he had 170 goals and 326 points in 717 NHL regular-season contests.
