Having captained one of the original six NHL franchises, Patrice Bergeron is familiar with the scrutiny that comes with the job. However, the attention is particularly intense when his team is on the verge of making history by achieving the most wins in a single season.

Recently, there have been reports that Bergeron, who comes from L'Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec, expressed a desire to play in front of his father during a visit to Montreal. Bergeron's father is currently battling cancer, and it may have been his last chance to see his son play live. Despite sustaining an injury during the game, Bergeron wanted to return to the ice after initially leaving.

Bergeron has long been recognized as one of the NHL's most respected players, praised for his leadership, work ethic, and dedication to the game. His commitment to his family and willingness to play through injury only enhance his already impressive reputation. As the team strives for a historic season, fans will undoubtedly be closely monitoring Bergeron's every move, both on and off the ice.

Patrice Bergeron's father is battling cancer. He wanted to play in front of his father in Montreal for possibly the last time. Even wanted to go back out there after he went to the room. I'm told that doesn't matter. Shouldn't have played. Wow. I'm stunned and at a loss for words
