With his assist in Boston's 4-0 win over Buffalo on Saturday night, Patrice Bergeron tied Adam Oates for 13th all-time on the Bruins' scoring list.
The point was the 499th of Bergeron's career. After suffering a serious neck injury a few years ago, Bergeron's career was in doubt. The 29-year-old is now one of the best two-way center's in the game, and he will continue to climb up Boston's scoring list. Bergeron has one goal and four points in seven games this season.

Patrice Bergeron had another injury scare Wednesday when he blocked a shot by Detroit's Dan DeKeyser.

He limped off the ice in the second period after the puck struck him in the foot. Bergeron was OK to play in the third and he appears to be all right. When the Bruins played the Red Wings last Thursday, Bergeron made a trip to the quiet room after a hit from Niklas Kronwall and he was elbowed by Johan Franzen. Playing Detroit early into the year has not been kind to Bergeron's health, but he's escaped unscathed so far.

Patrice Bergeron had a trip to the "quiet room" in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Detroit.

Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall crunched the Bruins center into the end boards early in the second period. He left the contest to undergo concussion testing, but knew he would be back. "It's one of those protocols that you have to respect, I guess," said Bergeron. "I had to go to the quiet room and it takes forever to go through that test. It took a little bit of time, but otherwise I was fine the whole time." He was also on the receiving end of an elbow from Detroit's Johan Franzen late in the third, but he stayed in the game and appears to be fine.

Patrice Bergeron intercepted a Jonathan Ericsson pass and then sniped home a laser over Jimmy Howard's left shoulder to put the Bruins up 1-0 in the first.

But that's all the offense Boston would produce. They tested Howard just 17 times all game. Bergeron played just 14:26 and a little over three minutes of special teams in the loss. He also only managed to win 57% of his faceoffs.

Patrice Bergeron’s hat trick accounted for all the Bruins' offense in their 4-3 shootout loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night.

Bergeron is coming off a season in which he had 30 goals and 62 points. He should be a solid contributor again in fantasy leagues, though his value, obviously, is much greater in real life due to his defensive prowess and possession-driving ability. Riley Smith, Dougie Hamilton, Zdeno Chara and Carl Soderberg picked up the assists. Tuukka Rask gave up three goals on 29 shots.

Patrice Bergeron won the EA NHL 15 cover vote.

"Being featured on the cover of 'NHL 15' is a dream come true," Bergeron said. "The fact that the cover is selected entirely by fans is an incredible feeling. The passion and support from hockey fans, especially Bruins fans, is unlike any other sport and I'm so grateful to everyone who voted for me." He earned more votes than Montreal's P.K. Subban in the final. The winner was unveiled at the NHL Awards on Tuesday. Bergeron also walked away with the Frank J. Selke Trophy and the NHL Foundation Player Award. He placed fifth in the league in Hart Trophy voting as well.

Boston center Patrice Bergeron was awarded his second career Frank J. Selke Trophy Tuesday night, given to the NHL's best defensive forward.

Bergeron is regarded as the pre-eminent two-way forward in the NHL so it's no shock to see him garner this honor for the second time in three seasons, but he did beat out some illustrious company to take home the hardware. Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Toews and David Backes followed Bergeron in the voting.

Patrice Bergeron is the favorite to win the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward.

He is competing against the Kings' Anze Kopitar and the Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews. Toews won the award last season, while Bergeron won it in 2012. The Trophy will be awarded next week in Las Vegas.
Jun 21 - 9:24 AM

Patrice Bergeron managed to finish the 2014 playoffs healthy.

"Physically I'm fine, but mentally and with my mood and everything it's definitely not there," Bergeron said after the Bruins were eliminated in Round 2 by Montreal. "It's not where you want to be." He suffered a punctured lung, separated shoulder, and torn rib cartilage last year in the postseason, so keeping his body together this time around could be viewed as a smaller victory. Bergeron finished second on the team in scoring with nine points (three goals, six assists) in 12 games.

Patrice Bergeron's seven-game playoff points streak came to an end Thursday night.

Bergeron is one of the NHL's most consistent post-season performers and will be looking to start another streak when the Bruins face the Habs in Game 5 Saturday night. Other Bruins who saw their points streak halted in Boston's 1-0 win Thursday were Torey Krug (five games), Milan Lucic (five games) and Brad Marchand (three games).
May 10 - 9:16 AM

Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli thinks Patrice Bergeron could become a 35-goal per season forward.

Bergeron reached the 30-goal mark for the second time in his career in 2013-14. He's 28 years old now, but Chiarelli believes Bergeron's "progression won't stop." If nothing else, we wouldn't be surprised if he scores 30 goals again next season.
May 7 - 6:24 PM

Patrice Bergeron netted his third goal of the playoffs Tuesday night, but it wasn't enough for the Bruins to avoid a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Canadiens.

Bergeron's second period tally cut the Montreal advantage to 3-1 when it found the back of the net and the Bruins drew even closer in the third frame after Andrej Meszaros picked up his first marker of the postseason, but that was as close as Boston would get. Lars Eller iced the game with an empty-net marker for Montreal in the game's final seconds.
May 6 - 10:10 PM

Patrice Bergeron notched a goal and an assist in Boston's 5-3 comeback win over Montreal in Game 2 Saturday afternoon.

He helped start the Bruins' third-period rally with an assist on Dougie Hamilton's second goal of the playoffs and then he tied the game about a few minutes later. Brad Marchand had a helping hand in both of those markers as well to give him four points in his last two games. Bergeron has recorded a point in six straight contests after he was held off the scoresheet in Game 1 versus Detroit.
May 3 - 3:58 PM

Patrice Bergeron is a nominee for the NHL Foundation Player Award.

Bergeron runs a charity called Patrice's Pals, which allows kids from youth organizations the opportunity to see Bruins' games from a luxury suite. After the game, they meet up with Bergeron.
