Video- The Patrik Berglund Story

from Chris Jonhston of Sportsnet,

For those of us who never took a stride in Patrik Berglund’s skate boots, there would have been more than 13 million reasons to stay.

The Swede didn’t just walk away from his NHL dream when he made the surprising decision to step away from the Buffalo Sabres last December. He also walked away from a guaranteed contract that had $13.03-million remaining on it.

“I know exactly how much money I left,” Berglund said when we sat down in Stockholm for an interview in late August.

That conversation has been turned into a feature called “ExPat: The Patrik Berglund Story,” which will air during Saturday’s “Hockey Night in Canada” broadcast...

What struck me most about Berglund is how much conviction he still has about that life-changing decision. He actually said that, in the end, it was no decision at all. This was the only path he saw back to a good place following a trade to the Sabres that never should have happened at all.

The 31-year-old is the son of a former Swedish Hockey League player and a former first-round NHL draft pick. He spent 12 years with the St. Louis Blues organization and signed a $19.25-million, five-year extension with them on Feb. 24, 2017 that included a 20-team no-trade list for Years 2 and 3 of the deal.

A Five-Year Extension For Patrik Beglund In St. Louis

ST. LOUIS - The Blues have agreed to terms on a new five-year, $19.25 million contract extension with center Patrik Berglund.

Berglund's previous three-year deal was set to expire at the end of the season. If left unsigned, he would have become an unrestricted free agent.

Berglund has played in 60 games this season and ranks second on the team in goals (17) and is third in game-winning goals (3). He has netted 16 of those goals in his last 30 games.

Berglund has been with the Blues since being drafted by the club in the first round (No. 25 overall) in 2006. The Vasteras, Sweden-native is one of just 16 players to appear in at least nine seasons with the Blues. He has accumulated 286 points, including 145 goals and 141 assists, in 615 regular season games. Berglund has also posted 10 goals and 12 assists in 49 career playoff appearances.

Video- You Make The Call On This Patrik Berglund Goal

via Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune,

The Lightning went 0-for-3 on the power play, but trailed only 1-0 until Patrik Berglund scored for St. Louis with 2:19 remaining.

Bishop initially stopped the breakaway attempt, but the puck rebounded to Berglund, who appeared to kick it past Bishop with his right skate. The goal was immediately waved off before the call was eventually overturned upon review.

“It’s an intentional kick,’’ Bishop said. “(Berglund) knows what he is doing, he’s trying to kick it in. He calls it no-goal and I think it’s tough to overturn. That’s a backwards kick and it’s tough when it’s called no-goal and he changes it.’’

The league office provided an explanation: At 17:41 of the third period in the Blues/Lightning game, video review determined that the puck deflected off of Patrik Berglund’s skate and entered the Tampa Bay net in a legal fashion.

According to Rule 49.2, “A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player’s skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal.”

A stunned Cooper begged to differ.

“I’m at a loss for words, to be honest,’’ he said. “I thought there was zero chance at that being turned over. My interpretation was that was as clean a kick as you can possibly see. It was a distinct kick. The ref on the ice was 10 feet away and was adamantly calling it a no-goal.’’
