Countdown to camp: Patrice Bergeron
From now until the beginning of training camp, CSN Bruins Insider Joe Haggerty is profiling players who will be on, or have a chance to be on, the 2016-17 Bruins. Today: Patrice Bergeron.
The single most important player on the Bruins roster enters his 11th season with the team and remains one of the very best players in the NHL. The 32 goals were a career-high last season and the 25 power-play points signified a player who is hitting the very highest notes of his career while collecting yearly nominations as a Selke Trophy finalist. There’s no reason to think the 31-year-old Bergeron won’t repeat something similar this season for the Black and Gold. The Bruins are most definitely going to need it.
