Bruins re-sign Patrice Bergeron

The Boston Bruins have re-signed center Patrice Bergeron to a multi-year contract, it was announced today by Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli. Bergeron was a Group II (restricted) free agent.

"Patrice is an outstanding young player with a tremendous future," said Chiarelli. "He is an offensive threat every time he is on the ice, has great defensive instincts and he plays a physical game without taking a lot of penalties. With all that he has already accomplished, he will continue to grow as a player and we are very pleased that he will do so in a Bruins uniform.”

Bergeron, 21, enters his fourth professional season since the Bruins made him their second pick, 45th overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He made the Bruins as an 18-year-old out of his first training camp in 2003 and, as the NHL’s youngest player that season, was a strong candidate for the Calder Trophy as the league’s top rookie before a February shoulder injury sidelined him for 11 games. He played the lockout season of 2004-05 in Providence as the AHL’s youngest player that year and played for the Canadian Team in the AHL All-Star Game.

The 6’0”, 197 lb. native of Sillery, Quebec led the Bruins in goals and points in 2005-06 with career-high totals of 31 goals and 42 assists for 73 points. He became the youngest player in team history to record a 30-goal season with a two-goal effort vs. Montreal on April 13, 2006, eclipsing Barry Pederson’s 1981-82 mark.

Bergeron has played for Team Canada in three world tournaments. He played in both the 2004 and 2006 World Championships, winning a Gold Medal in the 2004 tourney and ranking second in tournament scoring with 14 points in nine games in the 2006 tournament. He also represented Canada in the 2005 World Junior Championships, becoming the first Canadian player ever to play in a World Championship before taking part in a World Junior tournament. He led the 2005 World Junior Championship in scoring, was named the Most Valuable Player and to the All-Tournament Team as Canada won the Gold medal.
