Lesson For Bergfors

The New Jersey Devils needed to send a message to their rookie sensation on Friday night, as Niclas Bergfors was made a healthy scratch against the Maple Leafs. The young Swede has been having a marvelous season with the Devils, having 27 points in 52 games, but unfortunately, hasn't had a point in his last 5 games and has been a -4 in the process. I would imagine that the trip up to the press box is a short-term solution and should be back in the line-up right away.

ImplicationsIn the Draft, Bergfors was taken in the second Waiver Draft by Dale C. and he hasn't been able to collect any points since activating him allmost two weeks ago. A kick in the pants like a scratch should get him going again, which is what Dale needs to keep himself in the money spots.

On the Sheet, Bergfors was passed over every time in Box 25, where the likes of John Tavares reigns supreme. Tavares leads in selections and points this year, plus he isn't being scratched, so there shouldn't be any trades here.
