Following their 1st round exit of the playoffs following a crushing game 7 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, Boston Bruins team captain Patrice Bergeron
has been the subject of rumours that he may leave beantown.
18 year veteran of Boston and team captain for the past season and a half Bergeron has been a fan favourite and consistent producer for the Bruins, tallying 8 seasons with more than 60 points.
When asked regarding his future in the NHL and whether this season will be his last Bergeron responded:
"I don't know, to be honest with you. I think it's just more time...I'm gonna need some time to think about a lot of things and come up with the best decision for myself and my family."
Although there has been speculation about Bergeron possibly signing with the Montreal Canadiens to finish his career in his home province of Quebec, Bergeron has responded to those rumours bluntly when asked:
With Boston's exit Bergeron will have plenty of time to make his decision while fans hold their breath.
