Patrice Bergeron is a center for the Boston Bruins and has played for the franchise since they drafted him back in 2003. The Canadian professional ice hockey center has served as the team’s alternate captain and is known for his two-way playing abilities that have classified him as one of today’s premier two-way forwards.
During the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Patrice Bergeron was selected by the Boston Bruins. His rookie season gave him a NHL YoungStars Game selection as part of the 2004 All-Star weekend. Finishing his rookie season with 39 points in 71 games, Bergeron made an immediate League impact before the 2004-05 NHL lock-out had him playing for Boston’s minor league affiliate the Providence Bruins, in which he improved with 61 points in 68 games. The following season, he resumed with the Bruins and scored a career-high 31 goals and 73 points. Such skill led the Bruins GM Mike O’Connell to build the team around Bergeron due to his on-ice talent as well as off-ice character. At the season’s conclusion, Bergeron was awarded the Bruins’ 7th Player Award for exceeding and surpassing expectations. In the 2006-07 season, he scored over 70 points once again, along with 22 goals and 48 assists. After suffering from injuries, Bergeron enjoyed the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, and ultimately had his first career fighting major with Montreal’s Josh Gorges. During the 2011-12 season, he scored his first hat-trick in a Bruins win over the Ottawa Senators. In 2011, Bergeron became the 26th member of the Triple Gold Club, as the Bruins won their sixth Stanley Cup. He scored the game-winning goal along with another goal in Game 7 of the series. His defensive prestige on the ice earned him the Frank J. Selke Trophy for being the League’s top defensive forward during the 2011-12 hockey season. His toughness radiated when he played in the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals with a punctured lung, separated shoulder, broken nose, and broken rib: a true fighter. During the 2013-14 season, Patrice Bergeron signed an eight-year contract extension with the team and reached the 30-goal mark for the second time in his hockey career, earning him his second Frank J. Selke Trophy, the NHL Foundation Player Award, and the cover athlete for the NHL 15 video game. His 200th career goal followed in his 2014-15 season with the Bruins and he became the 17th player in Bruins’ history to score 200 or more career goals for the franchise. Despite suffering from a sports hernia, Bergeron, in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes, scored four goals and showcased his first-ever natural hat trick in his NHL professional career with the “concluding” threesome being scored with no one in between them. In just five games after, Bergeron recorded his third career hat-trick against the New York Islanders before suffering from further injuries.
