Is Patrice Bergeron Retiring?

The long time Bruin Captain Patrice Bergeron, will have a lot to think about this offseason as this may have been his last year in the NHL.

After the unfortunate lose to the Florida Panthers in Game 7 on home ice, Bergeron hugged and had a moment with every player before leaving the ice. Any captain would do the same thing, but you could tell this meant something more then just a simple hug between teammates.

The 37 year old has played 1,294 games (all as a Bruin), and scored 1,040 points. Patrice collected a lot of hardware over his two decades of playing.

The Bruins faithful and Boston city have loved Bergeron since the day he joined the club, his loyalty and heart-ship was invent when he played his first game in 2003-04.

The moments that Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron have shared over the years, have been very special for Boston Bruins fandom. Especially the little moments as they grew a bond with each other over the many years of playing with one another. The two embraced at the end of Game 7 it was very emotional and heartfelt, as they both shared a cry and were the last two off the ice.
