Fantasy Prospect Pick Up Of The Week
On a team that’s last in the western conference and hoping it’s bingo ball comes up with the number one pick this June, there is a bright spot for St. Louis Blues fans, and fantasy owners.
Despite the Blues being 4 games under .500 and the fact they’ve given up the 2nd most goals Patrick Berglund has flourished under Head Coach Andy Murray.
Berglund is tied for 3rd in rookie scoring with 30 points. His 14 goals sits him 2nd. While his amazing plus 13 on a losing team is also 3rd among first year skaters and leads the team.
The Swede has tremendous size standing 6’4”, it took him just 3 games to score his first NHL goal and will go down in history as the man who notched goal number 10,000 in Blues history. It should be just the beginning of St. Louis milestones that the 25th overall pick from 2006 will be a part of.
Patrick Berglund is my fantasy hockey prospect pick up of the week.
