Talent Analysis

Bergvik is an average sized butterfly goaltender. While he lacks the flexibility of some of his peers, he has the composure and significant technical skills. He skates well and pushes from post-to-post with the very best. He has a strong core and lower body strength provide for swift lateral movements. Bergvik is composed in the net and a calming figure on the ice. He communicates well, and his rebound control is solid for a player his age.


Bergvik is in his first pro season in Sweden as a 20-year-old. Yet to sign an entry-level deal with San Jose, he was with Frolunda during Champions League play. With Lars Johansson back for Frolunda and Johan Gustafsson signed after spending two seasons in the Wild organization Bergvik will start the 2015-16 season on loan to Mora in Allsvenskan. He has the technique and build to develop into an NHL-caliber goaltender and his play this season will determine if he is tendered a contract offer.
