Patrice Bergeron was glad to see Acadie-Bathurst win the Memorial Cup.
Junior hockey's top prize was one trophy that Bergeron was not able to win during what has already been an impressive playing career. "I've always kept an eye on them and how they were doing," said Bergeron referring to the Titan. "They've had some tough years in the past, but they've had a really good team now the past couple of years — so I've kept a close eye on them. It brought back a lot of memories, really, seeing them win. Really, really happy for them." He played 74 games with Acadie-Bathurst over two seasons before jumping to the NHL. Bergeron has a Stanley Cup (2011), four Frank J. Selke Trophy victories, the King Clancy Memorial Trophy (2013), and the Foundational Player Award (2014). He has also enjoyed plenty of success internationally with Team Canada. Jun 10 - 9:55 AM

The groin injury Patrice Bergeron was dealing this season might lead to surgery.

Bergeron wants to see if rest will correct the problem first, but if need be he'll have an operation over the summer. "It’s a little groin issue that will go away on its own hopefully," Bergeron said. "It was in one of the last practices in camp that I pulled my groin, and then it was an issue after that for a long time. It went away [for a while] and then it came back in the playoffs. Hopefully, it’s rest and rehab, but it might be surgery if it doesn’t go away." He finished the campaign with 30 goals and 63 points in 64 contests.
