Patrice Bergeron Injuries

Patrice Bergeron, a renowned ice hockey player, displayed remarkable resilience and dedication to his sport, a testament evident following the conclusion of Game 6 in a crucial series. In a striking display of toughness and commitment, Bergeron played through severe injuries, only to be admitted to the hospital immediately after the game. His condition was serious: he had a small puncture in his lung, a cracked rib, torn rib cartilage, and a separated shoulder. 

The fact that Bergeron continued to play despite such significant injuries speaks volumes about his dedication to his team and the sport. Playing with a separated shoulder alone is a daunting challenge. Still, the addition of a punctured lung and rib injuries elevates this to a level of endurance and pain tolerance that is almost unimaginable. The punctured lung, in particular, was a critical condition that required immediate medical attention, underscoring the severity of the situation.

Bergeron’s hospitalization for these injuries was a crucial step in his recovery. It provided him with the necessary medical care and highlighted the often unseen sacrifices and risks professional athletes take. His journey through treatment and recovery is a powerful example of professional athletes’ resilience and strength, often pushing their physical limits for the love of the game and the commitment to their teams.

Patrice Bergeron Early Life

Patrice Bergeron-Cleary grew up in the small Quebec town of L’Ancienne-Lorette, just outside Quebec City. From a young age, his passion for hockey was evident as he honed his skills on the local rinks, demonstrating a natural affinity for the sport that would one day make him a household name in the NHL. Born on July 24, 1985, into a supportive family, Bergeron’s upbringing was steeped in the rich hockey culture of Quebec, where the game is more a way of life than a mere pastime. He played for the junior team Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), where his impressive play caught the attention of NHL scouts. During these formative years, Bergeron’s all-around game developed rapidly, showcasing the work ethic, leadership, and elite on-ice intelligence that would become his trademarks. His dedication and determination, cultivated in the early mornings and late nights of his youth, laid the groundwork for a career that would eventually see him rise to the top echelons of professional hockey.

Patrice Bergeron Career

Patrice Bergeron Career

Bergeron was a lifelong Quebec Nordiques supporter while growing up in his birthplace of L’Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec. Bergeron spent most of his youth hockey career playing at the A and AA levels.

He participated in the Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournaments in 1998 and 1999 as a Sainte-Foy, Quebec City, minor ice hockey team member.

In 2001, he was drafted by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) out of the AAA Bantam division by the Sainte-Foy Gouverneurs. Before reporting to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League the following year, he played A hockey for the Séminaire St-François Blizzard the previous year.

The Boston Bruins selected Bergeron with the 45th overall pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draught. As a 2004 NHL All-Star weekend member, he was chosen to play in the NHL YoungStars Game in Minnesota during his first season. In 71 games during his rookie season, he scored 39 points. On October 18, 2003, in a 4-3 Boston road win over the Los Angeles Kings, he scored his first goal in the National Hockey League. The following April 9, 2004, he would defeat the rival Montreal Canadiens in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals with the game-winning goal in overtime.

While playing for the AHL All-Stars in February 2005, Bergeron was. During the NHL lockout, the Bruins sent Bergeron to their American Hockey League affiliate.

Bergeron played 68 games for the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL), Boston’s minor league affiliate, during the 2004–05 NHL lockout, and scored 61 points.

After the next season’s NHL break, Bergeron scored 31 goals and had 73 points, both of which were career highs for the Bruins. He spent most of the season on the ice with Brad Boyes and rookie Marco Sturm, who was traded for captain Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks in November 2005. After that, in an interview given by Bruins general manager Mike O’Connell in June 2011, the organization mentioned that they had chosen Bergeron over Thornton because of his character, both on and off the ice. In 2006–07, while playing in a defensive system by new head coach Dave Lewis, he scored 22 goals and assisted on 48 others, marking his second consecutive 70-point season. Until Boyes was moved towards the end of the season, he once again played with Sturm. A persistent shoulder issue hindered Bergeron for most of the season.

The 2007–08 season ended for Bergeron on October 27, 2007, after he had scored three goals and assisted on four more in the first ten games. A brain injury ended his season prematurely. After being attacked from behind by Randy Jones of the Philadelphia Flyers, Bergeron was knocked unconscious after hitting his head on the end boards. Jones was suspended for two games by the NHL. On November 8, Bergeron made his first public statement about the injury, saying he would not pursue legal action, and Jones had attempted to apologize. He lay motionless on the ice for a few minutes before being transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital on a stretcher. There, he was diagnosed with a broken nose and a grade-three concussion.

On January 19, 2008, the Boston Globe reported Bergeron had been sent on a vacation by then Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and that he would likely sit out for the remainder of the season as his recovery had regressed. In March 2008, Bergeron started preliminary on-ice practice with Bruins goaltender Manny Fernandez, who was recovering from knee surgery. He steadily progressed into full-contact practices in early April, aiming for a playoff return against the Montreal Canadiens in the opening round. However, he was held back by team doctors.

In June 2008, Bergeron was reported as being symptom-free during off-season training. He participated in the Bruins’ summer development camp (typically for Bruins prospects) with Fernandez before joining the Bruins’ main training camp. He returned to action with the Bruins for the team’s preseason-opening game on September 22, 2008, against the Montreal Canadiens, an 8–3 victory played in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Following the start of the 2008–09 season, Bergeron returned to action on October 23, 2008, scoring in a 4-2 home loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. However, he suffered a second concussion two months later, on December 20, 2008, in a collision with Carolina Hurricanes defenseman (and future Bruin) Dennis Seidenberg. He laid face down on the ice while team trainers attended to him, and he ultimately got up and left the rink on his own. Bergeron was placed on injured reserve and released from the hospital the day after the collision. He later became teammates with Seidenberg after the Bruins traded Byron Bitz to the Florida Panthers in 2010 for Seidenberg. After being sidelined for a month, Bergeron returned and finished the season with 39 points in 64 games. In the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, Bergeron had his first major fight of his career in an altercation with Montreal’s Josh Gorges.

In March 2010, Bergeron warmed up with the Boston Bruins before a game. Bergeron and winger Mark Recchi had a productive 2009–10 season, with Bergeron scoring 52 points. In 14 games played in the 2010 playoffs, he had 11 points (4 goals, seven assists). Bergeron has been in two fights in his NHL career, the first being on April 18, 2009, in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals. The following season, on January 11, 2011, he scored his first NHL hat trick in a Bruins victory over the Ottawa Senators. 

Bergeron was named the NHL’s First Star of the Month and First Star of the Week twice in January 2011. In response to Josh Gorges’s attempt to strike Bergeron in the jaw, the latter landed two punches on the former. The first occurred in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on June 1, 2013, vs the Pittsburgh Penguins. This was considered a major catalyst for the series. The second one came on June 1, 2013. In the middle of the ice, he and Evgeni Malkin started fighting. Malkin knocked off Bergeron’s helmet and took off their gloves to fight. Even when officials tried separating them, the two kept throwing punches.

After taking a hit from Claude Giroux in Game 4 of the 2011 playoffs’ second round against the Philadelphia Flyers on May 6, 2011, Bergeron suffered a slight concussion and missed the start of the third round. Allegedly, Alexandre Burrows of the Vancouver Canucks bit Bergeron’s finger on June 1, 2011, during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Bruins lost Games 1, 2, and 5 away but won Games 3, 4, and 6 at home, tying the series at three games apiece. A video of Burrows biting Bergeron’s glove while his hand was still inside it and bite marks on Bergeron’s finger were the only pieces of evidence that supported the bite, so the NHL did not fine or suspend Burrows. The Bruins won their sixth Stanley Cup on June 15, 2011, thanks in large part to two goals scored by Bergeron in Game 7 of the championship series against the Canucks. The Bruins went on to win the game 4-0 and the series. Additionally, Bergeron joined the ranks of the Triple Gold Club’s 26th member. His given name, Patrice Bergeron-Cleary, appears on the Stanley Cup.

Despite the Bruins’ first-round elimination at the hands of the Washington Capitals in the 2012 NHL playoffs, Bergeron was named the league’s best defensive forward for the 2011–12 season and presented with the Frank J. Selke Trophy.

After coming in second place in the Selke Trophy voting during the 2012–13 season—which was cut short due to the lockout—Bergeron had a sensational postseason, scoring the game-winning and tying goals in Round 1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs and the overtime winner in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bergeron gained notoriety in the hockey community for showcasing his resilience as he continued to play in the Stanley Cup Finals despite suffering injuries such as a punctured lung, dislocated shoulder, fractured rib, and broken nose, in a series that the Bruins ultimately lost in six games.

On July 12, 2013, the Bruins extended Bergeron’s contract for another eight years at $52 million ($6.5 million annually). The following season, the Bruins won the Presidents’ Trophy thanks primarily to Bergeron’s performance, as he scored 30 goals and added 32 assists, marking the second time in his career that he had done so. Bergeron received the NHL Foundation Player Award and his second Frank J. Selke Trophy for his career for his regular season play. At the same event, he was also announced as the cover athlete for the NHL 15 video game.

Bergeron became the 17th player in franchise history to score 200 or more goals for the Bruins on February 23, 2015, as the Bruins defeated the Chicago Blackhawks, 6-2. He has played his entire NHL career with the Bruins since they drafted him in 2003. On that day, he scored his 200th goal on Corey Crawford. 

While Bergeron’s sports hernia was discovered on April 25, 2017, it hindered his play during the 2016–17 season. The hernia was operated on May 8, 2017, and he was expected to be ready for the Bruins’ training camp before the 2017–18 season started.

Near the halfway point of the 2017–18 season, on January 6, 2018, in a 7–1 home win for the Bruins over the Carolina Hurricanes, Bergeron scored four goals, including Bergeron’s first-ever natural hat trick in his NHL professional career, bringing his scoring-point total (goals/assists combined) to 702 in his NHL playing career.

 Five games later, on January 18, Bergeron recorded the third hat-trick of his career (and second of the season) in a 5–2 win over the New York Islanders. After blocking an opposition shot with his right foot on February 24 against the hosting Toronto Maple Leafs, Bergeron discovered that he had broken a bone in his foot and would remain out of action for two weeks pending further evaluation of his foot fracture. By March 19, Bergeron had been able to start practicing his skating with the team. Bergeron was cleared to play in the Bruins’s road game against the Minnesota Wild on March 25, recording assists on each goal scored in the Bruins’ 2–1 overtime win.

Bergeron reached two remarkable milestones in his NHL career during the 2018-19 season for the Bruins. On February 5, 2019, he played in his 1,000th NHL game, all with the Bruins. He scored two goals in a 3-1 home-ice win against the visiting New York Islanders. By the late-season games of the 2018-19 season, Bergeron was on track to break the 800-point milestone in his NHL career.

On March 16, 2019, he scored a goal that tied the game in the first period, leading to a 2-1 home-ice overtime Bruins victory over the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets. Additionally, on April 17, 2019, Bergeron received an NHL record-setting eighth consecutive Selke Trophy nomination. For the ninth season, Bergeron was named a Selke finalist on July 20, 2020. In the years 2020–2023, the season was cut short by a pandemic, and the captaincy

The Boston Bruins named Bergeron captain on January 7, 2021. With 917 points (375 goals and 542 assists), Bergeron ranked fourth on the Boston Bruins’s all-time scoring list at the end of the 2020-21 pandemic-shortened regular season. Zdeno Chára, the team captain since 2006-07, signed with the Washington Capitals two weeks earlier in December 2020. He was in fourth place, behind only Phil Esposito, Johnny Bucyk, and Ray Bourque. Bergeron was nominated for the Selke Trophy for the tenth consecutive season just days before the Bruins were eliminated from the 2021 playoffs by the New York Islanders. However, he would instead win the Mark Messier Leadership Award for the 2020-21 season, recognizing strong team leadership and contributions to society.

On November 4, 2021, in the eighth game of the 2021-22 regular season, Bergeron finally scored for the Bruins. Patrice scored his second and seventh natural hat trick in his NHL career on that day in a home game against the visiting Detroit Red Wings. The Bruins team captain scored four goals in the 5-1 victory. Unfortunately, the Bruins were eliminated by the Carolina Hurricanes in the first round of the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs. Given Bergeron’s age, injury history, and the fact that his contract was up for renewal this season, the club’s future was cast in doubt. He said he would resign or retire if any other club tried to recruit him.

Bergeron scored his 400th goal in the NHL on April 28, 2022, with a hat trick in a game against the Buffalo Sabres. Bergeron joined Johnny Bucyk (545), Phil Esposito (459), and Rick Middleton (402) as the only Bruins players to score 400 goals for one team. On June 5, 2022, he was announced as the record-setting winner of the Selke Trophy.

After signing a one-year deal, Bergeron returned to the Bruins for his twentieth season on August 8, 2022. On November 21, 2022, he got his 1,000th point in the NHL with an assist on a goal by Brad Marchand in a 5-3 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

On July 25, 2023, after nineteen seasons in the NHL, Bergeron announced his retirement from hockey. A member of the Canadian national team since his rookie year in the NHL, Bergeron made his international debut in 2004 at the World Championships in Prague, where he won gold for his country and scored a goal.

During the 2005 World Junior Championships in North Dakota, Bergeron was selected to represent Canada on the national junior squad. The Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL) loaned him to the club while playing during the NHL lockout. A year ago, Bergeron was also qualified to participate in the World Juniors, but he was loaned to the national squad to play in the NHL instead. Along with Corey Perry and Sidney Crosby, he played in six games throughout the tournament, scoring five goals and assisting on eight more.
