Matt Bergland(17) Stockton Thunder

Matt Bergland

Undrafted, 2nd year left wing signs on for another season with ECHL Stockton Thunder.

In his rookie campaign he skated in 59 games scoring 11 goals and 18 assists with a +6 rating. He added another 6 goals and 4 helpers in 22 playoff games all the way to the 2013 Kelly Cup Finals.

The 5’11” 181 lbs. forward doesn’t look like the biggest guy on the ice but he’s starting his pro career much the same way he did in his first season with Providence College Friars. He posted his best point totals as a first year guy but they continued to decline until graduating.

He’ll definitely be looking to avoid a sophomore slump but chances are the 23-year old will continue to step up his game.
