NHL News: Boston Bruins And Center Patrice Bergeron Agree To Extension

The deal was agreed to right before the season starts for the B’s.

The Boston Bruins and Patrice Bergeron have agreed to a 3-year $15 million contract.

Bergeron suffered a serious concussion in the 2007-08 season and missed 72 games that year. The Bruins gave him all the time he needed to get healthy and now have been reward with a healthy Bergeron.

Bergeron scored 19 goals and 33 assists last year, but is expected to take on a bigger role in the offense this year with Marc Savard suffering from the lingering effects of a concussion of his own.
