History

2010-11: Fredrik Bergvik played for the Djurgarden U18 and U16 teams and was in net for Stockholm 2 in the TV-Pucken tournament for high school players in Sweden. He stopped 17 of 18 shots in his only action with the Djurgarden U18 team. Bergvik played four of six games for Djurgarden’s U16 team in SM play and had a 2.51 goals against and .924 save percentage. Bergvik had a 5.73 goals against and .862 save percentage in five TV-Pucken games.

2011-12: Bergvik moved from Djurgarden to Frolunda in western Sweden — playing for the club’s U18 team. Bergvik shared the goaltending for South Division champion Frolunda with Zackarias Skog. Bergvik played 13 of 22 games in Elit league play and had 3 shutouts with a 2.48 goals against and .890 save percentage. In eight divisional games he had 1 shutout with a 1.88 goals against and .919 save percentage. Frolunda won the U18 bronze medal but Bergvik did not see any action in the playoffs as the club went with Mathias Israelsson, who had played for the club’s U20 team during the regular season.

2012-13: Bergvik joined the Frolunda U20 team and was impressive in limited starts as a backup to Israelsson. He played in 10 of 27 games in regional play and was 8-1 with 2 shutouts; posting a 1.32 goals against and .948 save percentage. Frolunda was first in the 18-game Top 10 series and Bergvik was 4-0 with 2 shutouts and a 1.22 goals against and .953 save percentage. Israelsson started all six playoff games as Frolunda reached the semifinals and lost in the bronze medal game. Bergvik was not among the ten European goalies in Central Scouting’s final rankings yet was selected by San Jose in the fourth round (117th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.

2013-14: Bergvik made his first appearance in Sweden’s SHL, stopping 3 of 19 shots in 34 minutes of action in his only appearance with the Frolunda men’s team. He was 23-9 with 3 shutouts and had a 2.60 goals against and .904 save percentage in 32 SuperElit regular season games for the Frolunda U20 squad. Frolunda was first in the South Division before falling to Orebro in a preliminary round series. Bergvik was 1-2 with a 3.03 goals against and .889 save percentage in three playoff games.

2014-15: Bergvik returned to the Frolunda U20 team, sharing the goaltending duties with Hugo Fagerblom for the Super Elit silver medal-winning squad. He played four games with the Sweden U20 team but was not on the team that competed in the 2015 World Juniors. Bergvik was 17-10 with 1 shutout and had a 2.34 goals against and .912 save percentage in 27 regular season games. Frolunda reached the Super Elit championship, falling 3-1 to Djurgardens. Bergvik was 3-2 with a 3.75 goals against and .870 save percentage in five playoff games. He had a 3.67 goals against and .836 save percentage for Sweden’s U20 team.

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.

Future

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.

For a while now, the San Jose Sharks prospect pool has been deeply submerged under water. It has consisted of a lot of unknowns and was written off as one of the worst pools in the NHL. In 2013-14, the fins of the future have risen to the surface and everyone’s screaming “Sharks.”

The San Jose Sharks entered the 2013 NHL Draft with high optimism and eight picks in what many were describing as a very deep draft class, filled with players who could make a real impact. In fact, it is quite often compared to the 2003 draft, which gave rise to many of the stars of today. With an already improved prospect pool, along with four of the first 58 picks in the draft, the Sharks pipeline was looking as well stocked as it ever has and primed to become one of those pools other organizations marvel over.
