Patrice Bergeron shares bad news to Canadiens fans

Published February 5, 2022 at 10:31

In an interview with TVA Sports during the All-Star Game, he explained that he does not want to follow his agent at the end of the season. Playing for the Canadiens is not in his plans. He wants to re-sign with the Bruins, otherwise it will probably be retirement.

"People often do the math that one plus one is two because it's easy to do. But my intention is to remain a Boston Bruins player." -Patrice Bergeron

The Big Bad Bruins captain, who grew up in L'Ancienne-Lorette, would surely have said yes to signing with the Quebec Nordiques, but he'll stick with the Bruins.

"Probably! I was a Nordiques fan growing up". -Patrice Bergeron

Following the hiring of Kent Hughes as GM of the Tricolore, the Quebecer called his agent to congratulate him, but that's it, he will not follow him to Montreal. He hasn't thought about retirement yet, but the idea of not re-signing with Boston could eventually make him rethink that.

"The discussion we had was to tell me that he was leaving the agency to take the job as GM of the Habs. I was really happy for him. He's someone who has helped me tremendously, who has been my mentor."

"I'll think about that after the season. That's really all I can say because I don't know if I'll continue to play." -Patrice Bergeron
