Bergenheim will make his Wild debut Thursday against the Predators, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Somewhat surprisingly, Bergenheim is expected to to open the game as a member of the Wild's top trio, slotting in alongside Mikko Koivu and Thomas Vanek. Bergenheim didn't receive much duty in a top-six role during his time with the Panthers this season, which was reflected in his modest totals of eight goals and 10 assists in 39 games.

The Panthers traded Bergenheim and a 2016 seventh-round draft pick to the Wild on Tuesday in exchange for a 2016 third-round draft choice.

The 30-year-old's arrival in Minnesota will help restore some depth on the wing, as the team is without all of Ryan Carter, Jason Zucker, and Matt Cooke to long-term injuries. Expect Bergenheim to serve in a third- or fourth-line role with his new club, which likely won't lend itself to much fantasy appeal. He's cobbled together eight goals and 18 points in 39 points for the Panthers this season.
