Patrice Bergeron (lower body) is healthy enough to play on Thursday.

Bergeron missed Boston's first three games due to the ailment. Look for him to play on the top line with Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. David Backes, who was playing on the first line, will shift to David Krejci's unit instead.

Patrice Bergeron (lower body) is "on track" to play against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night barring any setbacks.

He was back at practice Wednesday between Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. Bergeron has missed the first three games of the season with a lower-body injury. He felt good after the session and will see how he feels Thursday morning.

Patrice Bergeron (lower body) won't play Monday versus Winnipeg.

However, coach Claude Julien believes that Bergeron is close to returning to action because he has been making progress during his skates. The Bruins top player has already missed two games and Monday's match will be the third.

Patrice Bergeron (lower body injury) is skating in Boston ahead of Monday's match with Winnipeg.

Coach Claude Julien noted that his status has yet to be determined, but this is certainly a positive sign that Bergeron is recovering well. Stay patient.
Oct 16 - 3:36 PM

Patrice Bergeron did not travel to Toronto for Saturday night's game nor will he be with the team for Monday's contest against Winnipeg.

Bergeron is still dealing with a lower-body injury and will obviously miss Monday's game against the Jets. The Bruins still list the versatile center as day-to-day, so at this point you should only be looking for a short term replacement.

Bruins coach Claude Julien noted that Patrice Bergeron is not yet ready to return to the team.

A disappointing start for the veteran, who played brilliantly in the World Cup for Team Canada. Stay patient, Bergeron will return soon.
Oct 15 - 3:53 PM

Coach Claude Julien called Patrice Bergeron's lower-body injury "minor" in nature.

He is expected to miss Thursday's season opener in Columbus, but could join the team for Saturday's match at Toronto or next Monday's contest at Winnipeg.

Patrice Bergeron is suffering from a lower-body injury.

Bergeron wasn't available to speak to the media after Tuesday's practice, which raised some concerns. It turns out he was dealing with an injury. He is being evaluated on a day-to-day basis, but will not travel with the team to Columbus for Thursday's opener.
Oct 12 - 11:17 AM

Patrice Bergeron was not available for media day because he had "to attend to something unexpected," according to a team spokesman.

It's unclear if an injury was the reason or something personal came up to cause his absence. Bergeron was on the ice for practice Tuesday, so we will keep him as active for the time being.

Patrice Bergeron may get more opportunities in the offensive zone in 2016-17.

David Backes started 41.1 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone, according to Corsica Hockey, which was the second-highest among forwards with 1,000 minutes or more. The Bruins can give him more of those responsibilities this year and deploy Bergeron on the attack after he started 34.6 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone last season. Bergeron and Brad Marchand will be key offensive players for Boston, so more time spent on offense should help the team if Backes can handle the defensive zone.

Patrice Bergeron scored in Canada's 4-2 loss to Team USA on Friday night.

The two teams were playing their first pre-tournament game of the World Cup of Hockey and it was a spirited and often times nasty affair. Bergeron's goal was assisted by linemates Sidney Crosby and Brad Marchand. Drew Doughty scored the other marker for the Canadians in the loss.
Sep 9 - 10:10 PM

After missing the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, Patrice Bergeron is hoping the Bruins get back on track in 2016-17.

"I think the last two years have been very disappointing to all of us," said Bergeron. "We definitely want to turn the tide. We are motivated to do that. It’s nice to say it, but you actually have to go on the ice and let your actions speak for themselves. I really like what I’m seeing from the guys and the way that they’re prepared and ready for this season." The 31-year-old scored 32 goals and 68 points in 80 games last season.
Sep 4 - 1:49 PM

Patrice Bergeron is looking forward to playing on the same team as David Backes.

Both players are natural centers, so they probably won't see much ice time together, but that won't stop Bergeron from being excited about the acquisition. "I’m really happy that David is joining the team," Bergeron said in a text message to the Herald. "He brings lots of intangibles that will make our team better. He also brings lots of experience and leadership. I’m looking forward to being his teammate."
