Patrice Bergeron C BOS 5 Days

Bergeron notched an assist in 16:48 worth of ice time in Wednesday's shootout win over Detroit.

As ESPN.com notes, Bergeron endured a bit of an injury scare Wednesday after absorbing a slap shot on his left foot late in the second period of the contest. The B's outstanding two-way pivot fortunately returned for the third period and should be fine for Thursday's game against Montreal.

Bergeron was able to return to Thursday's game against the Red Wings after leaving the contest for a spell in the second period to undergo the league protocol for suspected concussions, the Boston Herald reports.

Bergeron, who the reports notes has sustained four known concussions over his career, was shaken up after absorbing a hit that saw him go awkwardly into the boards early in the second period of the contest, and headed to the dressing room to be evaluated. To the great relief of the Bruins, who were already missing centers David Krejci and Gregory Campbell, Bergeron was cleared to return. Prior to his exit from the game, the B's outstanding two-way pivot scored the Bruins' only goal in the team's 2-1 loss.

Bergeron scored Boston's only goal of the game in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Red Wings. He finished plus-1 with a pair of PIM.

He played just 14:26 due to some kind of minor injury suffered in the second period, but apparently is none the worse for wear. After Bergeron netted an assist in Wednesday's season opener, that's two points in two games for the immensely talented 29-year-old.

Bergeron's teammate, Reilly Smith, has rejoined the Bruins after signing a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the team, the Boston Herald reports.

Smith, who recorded 51 points in 82 games for the B's last season, is thus presumably on track to rejoin left winger Brad Marchand on the Bruins' capable second line, centered by Bergeron, who remains one of the league's elite two-way pivots, on the heels of a season in which he recorded 30 goals and 62 points in 80 games, to go along with a plus-38 mark.

Patrice Bergeron won the EA NHL 15 cover vote.

"Being featured on the cover of 'NHL 15' is a dream come true," Bergeron said. "The fact that the cover is selected entirely by fans is an incredible feeling. The passion and support from hockey fans, especially Bruins fans, is unlike any other sport and I'm so grateful to everyone who voted for me." He earned more votes than Montreal's P.K. Subban in the final. The winner was unveiled at the NHL Awards on Tuesday. Bergeron also walked away with the Frank J. Selke Trophy and the NHL Foundation Player Award. He placed fifth in the league in Hart Trophy voting as well.

Boston center Patrice Bergeron was awarded his second career Frank J. Selke Trophy Tuesday night, given to the NHL's best defensive forward.

Bergeron is regarded as the pre-eminent two-way forward in the NHL so it's no shock to see him garner this honor for the second time in three seasons, but he did beat out some illustrious company to take home the hardware. Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Toews and David Backes followed Bergeron in the voting.

Patrice Bergeron is the favorite to win the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward.

He is competing against the Kings' Anze Kopitar and the Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews. Toews won the award last season, while Bergeron won it in 2012. The Trophy will be awarded next week in Las Vegas.

Patrice Bergeron managed to finish the 2014 playoffs healthy.

"Physically I'm fine, but mentally and with my mood and everything it's definitely not there," Bergeron said after the Bruins were eliminated in Round 2 by Montreal. "It's not where you want to be." He suffered a punctured lung, separated shoulder, and torn rib cartilage last year in the postseason, so keeping his body together this time around could be viewed as a smaller victory. Bergeron finished second on the team in scoring with nine points (three goals, six assists) in 12 games.

Patrice Bergeron's seven-game playoff points streak came to an end Thursday night.

Bergeron is one of the NHL's most consistent post-season performers and will be looking to start another streak when the Bruins face the Habs in Game 5 Saturday night. Other Bruins who saw their points streak halted in Boston's 1-0 win Thursday were Torey Krug (five games), Milan Lucic (five games) and Brad Marchand (three games).

Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli thinks Patrice Bergeron could become a 35-goal per season forward.

Bergeron reached the 30-goal mark for the second time in his career in 2013-14. He's 28 years old now, but Chiarelli believes Bergeron's "progression won't stop." If nothing else, we wouldn't be surprised if he scores 30 goals again next season.
