The blue line keeps getting deeper for the Black Bears, as they selected defenseman Seth Bergeron from the dispersal draft for the Jamestown Rebels. It has not been named public who the Black Bears selected from the Springfield Jr. Blues dispersal. The news of Bergeron’s acquisition was made known by the NAHL’s NA Now Yearly Preview they put out on Sunday.
Bergeron played three years for the Rebels and amassed seven goals and 38 points in 154 games. Prior to the NAHL, Bergeron came up through the Omaha Lancers’ AAA program and the Las Vegas Storm of the Western States League. Bergeron also appeared on Team NAHL in Sochi last year. Though his numbers may not scream offensive output, he does put up points in bunches. With his increase in points as his career went on, he should be a solid veteran addition for the Black Bears blue line.
With training camps going on, the pick-up of Bergeron came at the perfect time for him to come into the Maryland fold and be able to get the schemes he needs in order to move right into the action easily enough. While he’ll add to the blue line depth, you have to think that this will also help the competition between the rear-guards in order to get quality playing time move forward this season.
