As part of their daily updates, TSN reports that the Nashville Predators have put winger Niclas Bergfors on waivers. His lone goal for the Preds came in a game at Calgary, when a shot by Jack Hillen deflected off his upper body and into the net.

Nicknamed "J.P. Svatos" here because of his offensive talents combined with an inability to crack the Preds' lineup on a regular basis, Bergfors might well be a candidate to get claimed by another team. His status as a former 1st-round draft pick (23rd overall by New Jersey in 2005) and mere $575,000 contract could prove irresistible to a desperate GM. He could prove to be an affordable gamble, for example, on a team looking to jump-start their attack such as the Islanders or Ducks.
