Blues\' Berglund Turning Heads

TRAVERSE CITY -- Patrik Berglund is one of a handful of prospects participating in the Traverse City Prospects Tournament for the second straight September, and this time his goal is simple.

"I want to win the tournament," Berglund said. "That's the main reason we are here."

Berglund can have a narrow focus because he's already impressed in this type of setting. He led the tournament in scoring last year with 10 points in five games. Where he really needs to shine is at the Blues’ main training camp, which begins Friday.

"I want to be fair to our other players, but on our depth chart we have him pretty high," St. Louis coach Andy Murray said.

Berglund knows there is talk of him making the team and fantasy hockey players already are thinking of him as a late round pick, but he isn't consumed by the talk.

"I haven't read anything and I think that's kind of good," he said. "I want to focus on my game and practice for my goal of winning the games. I want to be a leader, but otherwise I don't think about what they're saying about me, or if I'm going to make the team or not. I just focus on myself and we'll see how far I go."

Eye-openerJake Allen didn't even get to attend the St. Louis Blues’ development camp this summer because he was in Toronto accepting his ring for winning the World Under-18 Championship with Canada.

So, like teammate and fellow 2008 draft pick Alex Pietrangelo, Allen's first on-ice experience with the Blues is ongoing right now in Traverse City, and it's been quite a learning experience for the 18-year-old.

"I said it to our goaltending coach, 'I feel small,' " Allen said. "A lot of the guys here are bigger and older, and I just turned 18. I feel small out there, but I feel big in my league (QMJHL). It's a huge step and it shows me I have a long ways to go."
