Bruins Captain Patrice Bergeron Unsure About Retirement

On the heels of Saturday’s season-ending loss to the Hurricanes, Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron again addressed the possibility of retirement with his 18th campaign now in the books.

Bergeron, 36, said throughout the season he intended to discuss his future when Boston’s year officially concluded, an outcome that came to pass Saturday in the first round of the playoffs. But, as the harsh reality of falling in Game 7 continued to sink in, Bergeron told reporters after the game he is still not ready to elaborate on his plans.

“It’s too early right now,” he said when asked about his future, per NBC Sports Boston. “Not after—it’s too fresh right now. It still stings, obviously, from a hard-fought series. Came up short. Obviously, I’m going to have to think about it, but I’m not there right now.”
