Marc-Andre Bergeron has signed a three-year deal with the Swiss League's ZSC Lions.

Bergeron is terrific with the man advantage, but he struggled to get regular ice time at the NHL level. He still managed to score 82 goals and 235 points in 490 games with the Edmonton Oilers, New York Islanders, Anaheim Ducks, Minnesota Wild, Montreal Canadiens, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Carolina Hurricanes. Given the length of this deal, it's entirely possible that the 32-year-old blueliner has played in his last NHL game.

Marc-Andre Bergeron, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in July, may return to Carolina if his salary expectations are reasonable.

Canes GM Jim Rutherford, who acquired Bergeron from Tampa in March, would like to have him back. Bergeron had a calming influence on the Hurricane power play and as long as his contract demands are modest, his chances of playing in Carolina are pretty good. That said, it will be a late signing if he returns. Bergeron, along with fellow UFAs Dan Ellis and Joe Corvo are expected to test the free agent market, at least initially.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded Marc-Andre Bergeron to the Carolina Hurricanes for a seventh round pick and Adam Hall.

Bergeron has a goal and five points in 12 games this season. Those numbers might not be particularly impressive, but Bergeron is great with the man advantage and the Hurricanes are last in the NHL when it comes to power-play percentage. With that in mind, Bergeron might play often enough with Carolina to justify picking up in standard leagues.

The ailment forced him to miss 39 of the team's last 40 contests during the 2011-12 campaign. Bergeron had 24 points in 43 games last season. However, it should be noted that even if he gets clearance from team doctors his roster spot with the Lightning isn't a sure thing after the club added Matt Carle and Sami Salo as free agents this past summer.
