Significant hint emerges on Patrice Bergeron’s decision towards playing future...

Oh wow, this could be a game-changer indeed.



While there is a lot of work for GM Don Sweeney this summer, when it comes to the Boston Bruins, the important thing to figure out is the future of captain Patrice Bergeron.

The 37-year-old star forward is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer for the second straight year after returning to the Bruins on a one-year deal deep into last year’s off-season. Once the Bruins were eliminated from what many believe would be their best chance at the Stanley Cup, Bergeron still has yet to decide if he will be back to play in 2023-24. However, Pierre LeBrun reported a significant hint on what the Bruins’ captain’s decision might be on Insider Trading on TSN.

“I checked into that situation today,” LeBrun said. “It’s still undecided where that matter is at. Listen, the Bruins are putting zero pressure on their captain. They’ve got all the time in the world to wait for him to make a decision. Listen, Patrice Bergeron, by the way, and his wife are expecting their fourth child next month – so, there are more important things in their life than hockey. But at some point, he needs to make a decision.

“Last year he didn’t sign with the Bruins until August, although he told the team in July that [he] intended to come back. So, that might give you a bit of a timeline. But as someone close to it said to me today, there is no timeline. Everyone is waiting patiently for Patrice Bergeron to decide his future.”

In his exit interview after the Bruins were ousted by the Florida Panthers, a series in which Bergeron missed the first five games and played the last two with a herniated disc, the captain mentioned how he would take his time when deciding on his future.

“I’m going to take some time and talk with the family and go from there,” Bergeron said after his team’s Game 7 loss. “Right now, it’s hard to process anything.”

You have to imagine another child also is a game-changer for Bergeron and his family when it comes to his playing future.
This past season, Bergeron posted 27 goals and 58 points in 78 games.

Will there be more points to add to his already amazing career or will he stop playing with a record of 427 goals and 1,040 points in 1,294 career regular-season games?
