Patrice Bergeron was last seen in the hospital recovering from among other things, a punctured and collapsed lung, after gutting through the pain in the Stanley Cup finals.

The Boston Bruins center then took to resting several weeks due to the stockpile of maladies, worrying some that me might not be fully healthy in time for the start of the NHL season.

On Sunday though, Bergeron quelled all those fears, stating that he is feeling 95 percent at this moment and expects to be there for the start of training camp on Sept. 11 and is a guarantee to be playing for the season opener against the Tampa Bay Lightning on October 3.

The Bruins assistant captain was in Calgary for Team Canada orientation camp in preparation for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Bergeron is one of the 47 members of the country's national squad.
