Hurricanes' Bergeron Inks Three-Year Deal With Swiss Team

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron signed a three-year contract with the ZSC Lions of the Swiss League.
Analysis: With the deal set to take him through his age-35 season, Marc-Andre Bergeron may never skate in the NHL again. Ice time was much more scarce in 2012-13 than it had been in previous seasons, but Bergeron has been a useful defenseman over parts of 10 seasons with the Oilers, Islanders, Ducks, Wild, Canadiens, Lightning and Hurricanes.

'Canes' Bergeron Sits Tuesday Versus Pens

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron was held out of Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh as a healthy scratch, according to the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: The writing was on the wall for Marc-Andre Bergeron, who has just one assist in four games so far since joining the 'Canes last week. He saw 21:31 of ice time in his first game, but his minutes showed a steady decline thereafter to just 12:09 prior to his benching. It looks like he is the odd man out on the 'Canes' blue line for now; bench him immediately.

Hurricanes Aquire Bergeron

News: The Hurricanes have acquired Marc-Andre Bergeron in exchange for Adam Hall and a seventh-round pick in the 2013 Draft, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron played in just 12 games for the Lightning, notching five points, but assuming the Hurricanes plan to give him some power-play time, it's not hard to imagine his playing time and production getting a lift in his new locale.

Lightning's Bergeron Not Playing Monday

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron will not play Monday against the Penguins, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron has played 10-plus minutes in each of the team's last seven games, but he'll take a seat Monday, seemingly as a healthy scratch. The 32-year-old defenseman notched his fifth point of the season (an assist) in Saturday's loss to Boston.

Bolts' Bergeron Gets Goal

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He's not getting consistent ice time, but he is putting up points (four points in seven games) when he's in the lineup. He remains too much of a risk to deploy regularly in fantasy, though. That will change if he gets regular ice.

Bergeron Back In For Lightning

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron will replace Keith Aulie in the lineup Saturday against the Panthers.
Analysis: You know the story with Marc-Andre Bergeron by now. When he's on the ice, he has an offensive prowess that makes him an intriguing short-term plug-in on the blue line, but it typically comes with a poor plus/minus and very uncertain playing time.

Lightning's Bergeron To Be Healthy Scratch Sunday

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron will be a healthy scratch Sunday against the Rangers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron skated a season-high 12:45 minutes Thursday, but he'll be back in the press box Sunday as a healthy scratch. He has a plus-2 rating in three games this season.

Bolts' Bergeron Healthy, But For How Long?

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) will be on the ice to start training camp Sunday, nearly a year after last playing and subsequently undergoing surgery. Feb. 7, 2012 was his last game action.
Analysis: There is an increased concern league-wide about injuries, especially groins and hip flexors (and maybe even backs), given the short camp and the compressed schedule. Don't be tricked by Marc-Andre Bergeron's so-called healthy status -- his risk will be even higher and his track record is pathetic. Avoid the temptation.

Bolts' Bergeron: Surgery Wednesday

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) will undergo surgery on Wednesday, reports the Associated Press.
Analysis: Hopefully he's fully recovered for next season. There are really only two certainties with this guy: he's scores when he's healthy ... and he's hurt a lot.

Bolts' Bergeron (Back) Chooses Surgery

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) has announced on his own Twitter account that he has decided to undergo surgery to repair a disc problem that has been affecting his sciatic nerve.
Analysis: "Surgery in sight," said the defender. "Unfortunate but it's the reality of professional sport." There's no report on the period of rehab required but suffice to say his season is over. We'll just have to wait to see what happens for next season.

Lightning's Bergeron Considering Back Surgery

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron is considering surgery to fix his lower-back injury, an action that would end his season, GM Steve Yzerman said Friday in the St. Petersburg Times.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron has missed 21 of the past 22 games with a bulging disc that is affecting his sciatic nerve. He had surgery in April 2009 while with the Wild to address a similar issue. He flew to New York on Tuesday to get another opinion, but the general consensus is that season-ending surgery may just be the answer.

Bolts' Bergeron (Back): Season Done?

News: There's a chance that Marc-Andre Bergeron's (back) season may be over, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: He flew to New York on Tuesday to get another opinion on his back injury. Before he left, he said, "We're trying to find out what's the deal and get rid of it." But even so, he said he was wrapping his head around perhaps not playing again this season. "Could be ... yeah," he said. He may not even be worth an IR spot in single-year formats.

Bolts' Bergeron: Another Opinion On Back?

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) is not with the Lightning on its current trip and may be headed to another doctor for another opinion on the injury, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: The injury, which has forced him out of 17 of the last 18 games, is apparently affecting his sciatic nerve. But at the same time, it seems like there has been a different diagnosis with each passing day. "For me, I hear a different sound to what it is and what it's going to be every day," coach Guy Boucher said. "I've stopped listening to be honest with you. Just tell me when he's ready. That's about it. He's been missing for so long now." The team may say day-to-day but we don't want you to count on him any time soon.

Bergeron Still Out For Tampa

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) will miss Saturday's game against Washington, TampaBayLightning.com reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron's return has been delayed for a week now, and it seems all but certain that there was a setback of some sort, or at least stagnation in the recovery. Tampa Bay hasn't called him anything worse than day-to-day, however.

Bolts' Bergeron (Back) Still Out

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) was scratched again Sunday, reports the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Analysis: A week ago, his return was just a matter of conditioning but we can't help but think there's something more going on here. We just don't know what.

Bolts Bergeron (Back) Scratched After Pre-Game Skate

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) took the warmup Saturday before Tampa's game against Buffalo but was scratched before the game.
Analysis: This back thing could be an ongoing issue for the rest of the season so plan accordingly. And whatever you do, DO NOT activate him unless you see his name in two consecutive box scores.

Lightning's Bergeron Takes Ice For Warmups Saturday

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron is on the ice for warmups before the game against Buffalo on Saturday, the Tampa Tribune's Erik Erlendsson reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron previously had a brief setback, missing Thursday's game after returning from a back injury on Tuesday. He should be his usual self going forward.

Lightning's Bergeron Not Present In Warmups

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron is not on the ice for warmups in Thursday night's game against the Rangers, the Tampa Tribune's Erik Erlendsson reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron returned to the lineup on Tuesday night against Los Angeles after missing nine games with a back injury. He was fully expected to play on Thursday night, and even participated in the morning skate, but it looks like he will not be in the lineup.

Tampa Bay's Bergeron Returns

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron returned to action Tuesday after missing nine games with a back injury. He did not register a point in the loss to Los Angeles.
Analysis: There was some rust, as was the case for a few of the Bolts who weren't injured, exhibited during the 3-1 loss. Marc-Andre Bergeron was a minus-2 and only skated 13:16, but that ice time should start to ramp up quickly.

Bolts' Bergeron (Back) Nears Return

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron's return from a back injury is now just a matter of conditioning, reports the Tampa Times.
Analysis: He has been out nine games so far and may be asked to stay out of the weight room, where he said he was injured and where he was hurt last year. "But it wasn't even heavy (weight)," he said of his recent workout. "I should have known better." He will resume his duties on the PP upon his return and should be a worthy activation at that point.

Bergeron Out Saturday For Tampa

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) will miss Saturday's game against Florida, TampaBayLightning.com reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Bergeron wasn't expected to be ready for Saturday's game, anyway. He's day-to-day for Tuesday's game against Los Angeles.

Bolts' Bergeron (Back) At Thursday's Morning Skate

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) was on the ice during Thursday's morning skate, reports the Tampa Bay Lightning. He was wearing the red 'no-contact' jersey.
Analysis: It's good to see him on the ice but we don't expect him back to game action this weekend -- he just hasn't practiced enough. And we need to hear how he feels after the exertion to know if he can be moved to day-to-day status.

Bolts' Bergeron Out Tuesday

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) won't play Tuesday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: He was unable to practice Monday, and that he was unable to get back in action after the All-Star break suggests that he may be sidelined beyond Tuesday's tilt with the Caps.

Bolts' Bergeron Remains Sidelined

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) was not on the ice for practice Monday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Presumably, he won't play Tuesday and his status for the entire week is a bit up in the air when you consider that rest around the All-Star break wasn't enough to help him get back on the ice Monday.

Lightning's Bergeron Stays Home

News: Marc-Andre Bergeron (upper body) is not traveling with the team for Friday's game at Dallas, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: While not specifying his injury, the report notes that Marc-Andre Bergeron is slated to undergo more testing, which infers that he is in the day-to-day category.
