The Atlanta Thrashers have agreed to terms on a $900,000, one-year deal with winger Niclas Bergfors, his agent, J.P. Barry of CAA Sports, confirmed to ESPN.com on Monday.

The restricted free agent signs just days before training camps open around the NHL.

The 23-year-old Swede had 21 goals and 23 assists in 81 games with New Jersey and Atlanta last season, his NHL rookie campaign. He was dealt to the Thrashers in the Ilya Kovalchuk trade last February.
