Coach Ken Hitchcock has liked what he's seen from Patrik Berglund despite his struggles on offense.
"I see a guy that's really starting to play a strong role on our hockey club," Hitchcock said. "The scoring is the last part of it that gets taken care of, not the first part. He's got better tempo on his game, he's got more determination, he's got the puck more because he's hanging on to it and skating. I like a lot of the things he's doing right now. I think he's got some real heavy hard play with the puck now. If he continues down this path, it's going to lead to some real good scoring opportunities every night." Berglund earned a goal and an assist on Saturday to double his season point total. He's playing alongside David Backes and T.J. Oshie. Nov 17 - 10:26 AM

He didn't play Saturday night after he received a slash the Blues' season opener last Thursday versus the New York Rangers. Coach Ken Hitchcock liked what he saw from the Berglund-Backes-Oshie combination and there likely to play together when Berglund is able to return. St. Louis doesn't play until Thursday versus Los Angeles, so he has some more time to make himself available.

Berglund didn't have a successful transition from center to the wing last season, but the Blues feel it was because he wasn't given a chance to solidify himself anywhere. Perhaps a move alongside a pair of talented players will help in that regard.

St. Louis has signed Patrik Berglund to a three-year deal worth $11.1 million.

His new contract will carry an average annual value of $3.7 million. The Blues have a lot of faith in Berglund and they will be looking for more from him next season. "I don't think Patrik was over the moon with his season," GM Doug Armstrong said recently. "Moving from centering to wing, he never really solidified his spot anywhere on our team. We need more from him and he probably needs more from us." He accounted for 14 goals and 32 points in 78 games last campaign. His name has surfaced in trade rumors of late, as St. Louis looks for a star second-line center.

"You're walking into a hornets' nest and that's why we're starting him a little bit on the lower side of the roster, to see where he's at from being able to keep up mentally," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I think the first game back for [T.J. Oshie] was really rich, walking into something like that. We expect the same for Bergy." Berglund won 5-of-8 faceoffs and finished with a minus-1 rating in the Blues' 2-0 loss to Chicago.
