If there is one Quebecer who currently plays in the NHL who has had a career, it is Patrice Bergeron. The native of L'Ancienne-Lorette now counts 951 points in 1185 games in the Bettman circuit.

The one previously represented by former Constable Kent Hughes has obviously been linked to the Canadiens since the appointment of the new Executive Director.

In an interview at a press conference near Las Vegas in preparation for the All-Star Game, Bergeron clearly identified within which organization he would like to pursue his career.

"People often do the math that one plus one is two because it's easy to do. But my intention is to remain a Boston Bruins player.»

It must be said that the former second-round pick of the Bruins in 2003 played all 19 seasons of his career in Boston.

Now 37 years old, the Quebecer will find himself an unrestricted free agent at the end of the campaign, for the first time in his great career. However, he could not confirm that he will be back next year.

«I'll think about that after the season. That's really all I can say because I don't know if I'll keep playing.»

Although he wants to stay with the Bruins, Bergeron says he still has not discussed a contract with his organization.

"It doesn't bother my thoughts at all. And because I haven't entered into contract negotiations, people are creating scenarios that don't exist.»

Winner of four Frank Selke Trophies over the course of his career, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for one of the best defensive forwards of recent years.

A team looking for leadership may well be tempted by its services.
