Bergeron had his share of struggles in 2016-17, but he played through a sports hernia issue. He was hurt in Boston's last practice before the start of the regular season and he sat out the first three games, but then he played in the next 79 matches and all six playoff contests against Ottawa. Bergeron underwent surgery after the Bruins were eliminated from the postseason. He got off to a sluggish start with seven goals and 12 points in his first 36 matches, but heated up after the All-Star break when he accounted for 29 points in the last 30 contests of the year. Bergeron benefited from some breaks in the second half and he concluded the campaign with 21 goals and 53 points. He collected seven goals and 17 points on the power play, while leading the Bruins with 302 shots. Bergeron also won his fourth Frank J. Selke Trophy as the league's top defensive forward, equaling Bob Gainey for the most in NHL history. He topped the league with 1,089 faceoff wins and had a 60.1 winning percentage on 1,812 total draws. Look for Bergeron to get back to the 60-point plateau in 2017-18 and challenge the 70-point mark if he can stay healthy.

Patrice Bergeron is unlikely to play in Saturday's game against Arizona.
"He’s out there skating, so that’s a good sign," said head coach Bruce Cassidy. "Obviously, without being able to participate in practice, you need one of those good practices before you play. He’ll be updated again (today). It doesn’t look like he’ll be in (tonight), but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. He could get up in the morning, come in and skate and pronounce himself ready. A guy like him would get the benefit of the doubt."
