Forward To Return For One More Season

Boston will have their captain back for one more season. 

According to Joe Mcdonald of the Worcester Telegram, forward Patrice Bergeron is returning to the Bruins for another season likely a one-year deal. 

This past season, Bergeron put up 25 goals and 40 assists for 65 points in 73 games. He also scored seven points in seven games in the playoffs..

The thirty-six year old was awarded his fifth Frank J. Selke trophy this season, given to "the forward who demonstrates the most skill in the defensive component of the game." The five trophies are the most ever won by a player in the history of the NHL.

Bergeron, the 45th overall pick by the Boston Bruins of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, has played all his games in the NHL with the Bruins and scored 400 goals, 582 assists for 982 total points in 1,216 games. He won the Stanley Cup in 2011 with the Boston Bruins. 

Bergeron played the last season on his eight-year, $55-million contract this past year. 

The Bruins will have some decisions to make after this season as core forwards Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak will be unrestricted free agents.
