BostonBruins.com - On Friday, General Manager Peter Chairelli announced that the Bruins Patrice Bergeron to an eight-year contract extension, that makes him a Boston Bruin until at least the 2021-22 season.
As voiced numerous times by everyone in the Bruins’ organization, from Chiarelli, to Head Coach Claude Julien, to the assistant general managers, to his teammates, Bergeron epitomizes the spoked-B on and off the ice everyday. He’s the model, the example they use, when described what they want in a Bruin.
The constant preaching came to fruition for the entire hockey world - and beyond - in the Stanley Cup Final, when Bergeron ended up playing through a broken rib and torn cartilage on his left side, along with a separated right shoulder, and a puncture in his lung.
When Bergeron and Chiarelli joined media on a conference call Friday to discuss the new extension, the alternate captain said his recovery for the aforementioned injuries is “going well.”
"It’s going the way that it should be," said Bergeron. "I’s going to be three weeks next Monday so I still have another week after that."
