Defenseman [url=http://www.eurohockey.net/transfers/transfers.html?nationality=&country=&lastname=B&days=31]Henrik Bergfors has been released from his tryout by Brynas of the Swedish Elitserien[/url] according to eurohockey.net. In the summer of 2003 the Lightning attempted to sign the mammoth 2001 9th round pick, but contract talks failed and Bergfors soon signed with Wichita of the CHL where he had a season ending shoulder injury after just one preseason game. Bergfors spent last season with Adirondack of the UHL where he had 4 assists in 62 games.
