Bergeron Signed to 3-year Extension
PRAGUE, CZE - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed forward Patrice Bergeron to a three-year contract extension through the 2013-14 season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

The 25-year-old Bergeron is entering his seventh NHL season, having made the Bruins NHL roster in his draft year of 2003 as an 18-year-old. He has served the club as an alternate captain since 2005-06. In 2009-10, Bergeron captured the team scoring title for the second time in his career (tied with David Krejci), with 19 goals and 33 assists for 52 points on the season. In addition, he ended the regular season fifth overall in the NHL with a 58% faceoff efficiency. In 13 postseason games, the 6’2’’, 194-pound native of Sillery, Quebec tallied four goals and seven assists for 11 points, which ranked second on the squad.

He also earned a gold medal as a member of Team Canada in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. This was his first Olympic gold and third gold medal with Team Canada overall, having won the 2004 World Championship and 2005 World Junior Championship.

Selected by the Bruins in the second round (45th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Bergeron enjoyed his best season statistically in 2005-06 when he registered career highs in games played (81), goals (31) and points (73). He also recorded 42 assists in 2005-06, which is his second highest total of his career (48 in 2006-07), and captured the team’s 7th Player Award, an annual award given to the Bruin whose performance exceeds the expectations of Bruins fans during the season.

In Bergeron’s six-year NHL career, he has played in 376 regular season games – all with the Bruins – and has registered 99 goals and 181 assists for 280 points, while adding five goals and 15 assists in 31 playoff games.

Off the ice, Bergeron has been actively involved in numerous charitable activities, but most impressive is the development of the “Patrice's Pals” program. Launched in 2006, Patrice’s Pals brings patients from local hospitals and other children's organizations to the TD Garden to experience a Bruins home game where the children are able to feel the excitement of a professional hockey game as VIP guests. Following the games, Bergeron personally meets all of the children and takes pictures and signs autographs. For more information on Patrice’s Pals, please visit www.bostonbruins.com.
