As NHL clubs start the final preparation for the start of training camp this week the final spots for the camp rosters are being rounded out with Professional Tryout Offers, Sean Bergenheim is the latest to accept a PTO.
Bergenheim, 32, has accepted a PTO offer in order to attend the Anaheim Ducks camp, and a shot at making the roster.
Last season the 5’11”, 201-pound winger spent time with Bern SC of the Swiss League where he recorded 13 points in his 31 games played.
Before heading to Europe last season, the Helsinki, Finland native spent the 2014-15 season split between the Minnesota Wild and the Florida Panthers. In 56 games played between the two clubs he notched nine goals and 10 assists.
A 22nd overall draft selection in 2002 by the New York Islanders, Bergenheim has 506 NHL games under his belt in which he has recorded 96 goals and 180 career NHL points while racking up 379 penalty minutes and is a career minus-42.
A three time IIHF Men’s World Championship medalist (one silver, two bronze) the Finnish forward plays a physical game, a niche in which the Ducks may be looking to fulfill for the upcoming season.
