Patrice Bergeron to Come Out of Retirement and Sign a New Deal? This Shocking Possibility Has Been Suggested by Bruins Captain Brad Marchand

As you know, over the past few months, even though he was still absolutely at the top of his game, Quebecer forward Patrice Bergeron announced his retirement from the NHL.

It was an extremely difficult decision for him, and many believed he could return for the end of the season and the playoffs.

Anyway, there's one who is loudly demanding it!

Brad Marchand wants Patrice Bergeron to sign and come out of retirement




This is what we learn notably in the following article.


If he comes back for the playoffs, he will indeed not be counted against Boston's salary cap. Personally, we have a lot of trouble believing it, but it would indeed be incredible for them.

«The Boston Bruins are doing very well without Patrice Bergeron, but Brad Marchand would like to see his old accomplice back on the ice.» - TVA Sports

And the new captain of the Bruins is insistent:

«Bergy [Bergeron], I think he's annoyed by how many times I push him to come back to the game. He is excited about what's coming.» - Marchand

Interesting!

One thing is certain, Marchand assures that he and Bergeron still talk a lot together, almost every day! In any case, the Bruins are doing very well again this season, ranking 4th in the league, and 1st in the East, with a record of 23-8-6 (52 points).

A file to follow and a possible "long shot" option to keep in mind.
