Marc-Andre Bergeron will sign a PTO with AHL Cleveland.

Columbus has released Marc-Andre Bergeron from his professional tryout.

He has played the last three seasons in Switzerland with Zurich SC, so a return to Europe may not be out of the question for him.

For Marc-Andre Bergeron, a return to the NHL in 2016-17 wasn't part of his initial plan.

Bergeron is a veteran of 490 NHL games, but the undersized defenseman's body "took a beating" over his years in North America and he made the move to Switzerland for the 2013-14 campaign. He's enjoyed his three seasons with Zurich SC, but at the age of 35 he's giving an NHL comeback a shot via a professional tryout with the Columbus Blue Jackets. "It took me a couple days to consider this when my agent called," he said. "But then I was like, ‘Let’s do this!' I’m only thinking about this now. My kids are back home (in Quebec) and settled in to school. I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but I like the way things are going right now. I just want to give it my all. I’m here and feeling good."

Marc-Andre Bergeron will be with the Columbus Blue Jackets at training camp on a professional tryout.

He has played for the ZSC Lions of Switzerland's National League A for the last three seasons. Bergeron had seven goals and 25 points in 43 matches last year.

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.

Marc-Andre Bergeron will once again sit in the press box Saturday night.

A game against Montreal might have been a treat for Bergeron, but he will not get the chance to suit up. Adam Hall and Brendan Mikkelson will also be healthy scratches.

Marc-Andre Bergeron played consecutive games for the first time this season following Tuesday's contest.

He served as a healthy scratch 10 times in the first 14 games and has been the subject of trade rumors. Bergeron had an assist on the winning goal Saturday against Florida, but his ice time dropped back against Toronto on Tuesday.
Wed, Feb 20, 2013 11:11:00 AM

Marc-Andre Bergeron played for just the second time since January 25th in Saturday's contest against the Panthers.

Bergeron, who was once a pretty fair offensive rearguard on the power play no longer has any fantasy value.

It appears as if Marc-Andre Bergeron has a permanent seat in the Lightning press box this season.

He is not playing much and will not play Saturday against the Bruins. Bergeron, who was once a pretty fair offensive rearguard no longer has any fantasy value. If you drafted him, drop him immediately.

Marc-Andre Bergeron was a healthy scratch Friday night.

The veteran rearguard has only played in two games this season and seems to be regarded as the Bolts' seventh defenseman. Bergeron has long ceased to be fantasy relevant.

Marc-Andre Bergeron claims he has recovered without limitations from his troublesome back injury that required surgery to repair.

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.

Marc-Andre Bergeron will undergo season-ending back surgery.

Bergeron has been sidelined for 22 of the Lightning's past 23 games due to a bulging disk in his lower body. It has been affecting his sciatic nerve. Bergeron underwent surgery to deal with a similar injury in April 2009.
