It appears Kris Versteeg will soon be back on the free agent market.

As per TSN, the 30-year-old veteran forward, who has played 550 NHL regular season games for six different teams, signed with SC Bern of the Swiss National League toward the end of July.

However it’s been reported that a change in his contract status is expected.

Versteeg initially underwent the operation in May of 2012 when he was a member of the Florida Panthers. He had 23 goals and 54 points that season, but he’s never been able to match that level of production since.

He split last season between the Carolina Hurricanes and L.A. Kings. He was traded to L.A. prior to the deadline, as he joined the Kings for the playoffs.
