BREAKING: Bruins Release Major Update Regarding Patrice Bergeron

The Boston Bruins will likely be bestowing a major honor to franchise legend Patrice Bergeron.

Bergeron Expected To Be Honored By Bruins



According to Bruins Team President Cam Neely, the team will likely be retiring Bergeron's #37 Jersey to the rafters.




If, and most likely when, Bergeron gets added to the Bruins list of retired numbers, he will be the 13th member of the team to do so, joining Neely among the likes of Bruins legends such as Bobby Orr (4), Phil Esposito (7) & Ray Bourque (77). The #99 Jersey is also retired by all 32 teams in honor of Wayne Gretzky, including the Bruins.

Bergeron, likely to be added to the rafters sooner rather than later, will likely be seeing his Jersey added soon, although other potential candidates such as Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas may be first in line.

Bergeron ranks 3rd all-time in Bruins Games Played (1294), Goals (427), and Points (1040), as well as 4th in Assists (613). Bergeron is all tied for 2nd in Bruins Playoff PTS (128).

As a 19-year veteran of the Bruins and a staple of their dominance in the 2010s. Bergeron played his entire NHL career with the Bruins, with a partial season during the 2012-13 lockout spent with Lugano of the Swiss National League. With the Bruins, Bergeron netted a 2011 Stanley Cup for Boston, and added a hefty cabinet of personal accolades as well, winning an NHL-record 6 Selke Trophies for Best Defensive Forward, along with 3 All-Star appearances, as well as 2 Gold Medals Internationally at the Olympics for Canada, with a spot in the Hall of Fame almost certain for Bergeron in the future.
