Patrice Bergeron is undeniably one of the most iconic players in Boston Bruins franchise history, and with the possibility of Zdeno Chara passing on the torch of captaincy to Bergeron, it seemed like the perfect time to recap five of Bergeron’s most iconic moments.
5. World Cup of Hockey commercial
Nothing like a little comedy to kick us off.
4. Patrice goes off
Anyone who’s seen Bergy play knows he’s an intense and dedicated guy, so it’s no surprise he got visually emotional while the Bruins were losing a big game.
3. Fourth Selke win
Bergy has snatched four Selke Trophies, the only player to do so along with Bob Gainey.
2. Game No. 7 OT winner
Is it really an article about Bergeron without some mention of this goal? Obviously not.
1. 2011 Stanley Cup Final
Similar to No. 4, it’s hard to think of Bergeron and not think of the two goals he scored during Game No. 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.
So, time will only tell if Bergeron will become the next leader of the Bruins, but looking back at these legendary moments you can’t deny that he’s definitely worthy of it.
