FORMER NHLER PATRICK BERGLUND ARRESTED AND FACING SERIOUS CHARGES IN SWEDEN

MAY 4, 2021  (15H42)      TIM TUCKER
Patrick Berglund's NHL career was a rocky one, and his private life has just gotten very rocky as well. According to various reports out of Sweden, the 32-year-old former first-round draft pick has been arrested on charges of assault and rape against a former girlfriend.

In early April, prosecutors in Sweden told local media outlets that a preliminary investigation was underway after reports of assault against Berglund's girlfriend. Berglund has been playing in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL) since abruptly leaving the NHL near the end of 2018.

Berglund's lawyer has confirmed he is in custody and that police are attempting to detain him for now. However, his lawyer told Arbetarbladet that Berglund denies all of the charges and he is attempting to get his client released.

"Our stance is that there are not even probable reasons for suspicion of crime," said Berglund's lawyer.

A hearing is scheduled to take place Wednesday.

Berglund missed the latter part of the SHL season after coming down with COVID-19. In the NHL, he had played for the St. Louis Blues for his entire career, but was traded to Buffalo in the deal that sent Ryan O' Rielly to St. Louis. After 32 games with Buffalo, Berglund decided he did not want to play for the team, and his contract was terminated. He left $12.5 million in the table in order to return to Sweden. Berglung played more than 700 games in the NHL, recording 170 goals and 326 points.
