Berglund registered a goal in Monday's 4-1 preseason road win over the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

Acquired in the Ryan O'Reilly deal when the free-agency signing period opened this summer, it didn't take long for Berglund to make an impact with his new club. He opened the scoring in this preseason contest and wound up with 17:51 of ice time, including 1:24 on the power play. Berglund will be hard-pressed to see man-advantage ice time during the regular season, but an injury to a top-six forward -- namely Jack Eichel or Casey Mittelstadt -- could always change those plans.

Berglund was traded alongside Tage Thompson, Vladamir Sobotka, a 2019 first-round pick, and a 2021 second-round pick to the Sabres for Ryan O'Reilly on Sunday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Blues dealt quantity for quality in this one, with a few pieces, like Berglund, heading north in exchange for a top-six forward in O'Reilly. Berglund is, admittedly, the least-interesting part of the return for the Sabres. The 30-year-old had 17 goals in 57 games last year, but he only had nine assists. Playmaking has never been the Swede's strong suit, and that's not likely to change with Buffalo. There is less talent on the Sabres, so there could be a good role for Berglund, unless they decide to go with a youth movement.

Berglund accrued 17 goals and 26 points in 57 games this season.

EDGE Analysis

Berglund missed the first 24 games since he was rehabbing from a shoulder injury, and he came out of the gates sluggishly. In the first 40 games, the 29-year-old compiled just eight goals and six helpers, which led to him becoming a healthy scratch. After being scratched, Berglund was a new player, producing nine goals and 12 points in the final 17 games

Berglund had three of his team's four goals in a 4-1 win over Chicago on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Berglund has actually come on strong as of late, scoring nine of his 17 goals in the final six weeks of the season. Still, few people could have predicted a night like this for him in a must-win situation for St. Louis. If you need a cheap play in a daily league Saturday, he's a name to remember as the Blues play for their postseason lives against Colorado.

Berglund scored one goal and fired five shots on net in Monday's 4-2 loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

When Paul Stastny was sent via trade to Winnipeg, it was assumed Berglund would center the second line. Instead, Kyle Brodziak stepped up and bumped Berglund to left wing. That bothered him none, though, as the 29-year-old winger has four goals, one assist and a plus-4 in the last six games, while averaging 17:00 of ice time per contest. Berglund should be viewed as a high-upside forward for a cheap price in daily leagues.

Berglund scored two goals during Friday's 4-1 win over Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

Injuries have limited Berglund to just 49 games this season, and his 12 goals and seven assists haven't been a huge help to fantasy owners. The 29-year-old center has consistently failed to capitalize on his annual opportunities in a scoring role, and it appears that he's bound to primarily play a defensive role now that his best offensive years are in the rearview mirror. As a result, he probably shouldn't be relied on in the majority of settings.

Berglund had zero points, two blocked shots and six hits Friday against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Berglund hasn't been up to standards of head coach Mike Yeo lately, even being a healthy scratch once and on the trade block before the deadline. The lifelong Blue signed a five-year, $19.25 million extension last season, when he scored 23 goals and 34 points in 82 games. However, the Swedish forward hasn't met expectations with the new pact, compiling just eight goals and 14 points through 42 games this campaign, while wearing a brutal minus-10 rating. Berglund has also been moved from his center role, but he's still working on the power play due to lack of better options.

Berglund compiled one assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

Berglund has just six goals and 10 points through 27 games this season -- far from the 23-goal, 34-point performance of last season. The Blues have him centering the third line, but they've given him ample opportunities to score by consistently deploying him on the power play. Still, Berglund continues to be a fearless physical presence, dishing out 51 hits and accruing 18 PIM so far.

Berglund recorded two shots through 17:47 of ice time (1:56 with the man advantage) during Thursday's 2-1 win over the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran missed the first 24 contests of the season because of a shoulder injury and has just seven points -- six goals -- through 19 games since returning. After recording 23 tallies last season, Berglund can be counted on in deep settings to move the needle in that category, but he's offered little fantasy value otherwise. Additionally, throughout his career, the 29-year-old center has proven to be best suited for more of a defensive role matching up against the opposition's top scorers.

Berglund scored a power-play goal in the Blues' 2-1 OT loss to the Wild on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He's only skated in three games this season and now has a power-play goal in his last two outings. Berglund has never become the two-way force that his rookie season foreshadowed. But he is a solid waiver play, especially if this heat stays in his game.
