Breaking Statement Concerning Patrice Bergeron and the Canadiens

Quebec center Patrice Bergeron announced his retirement from professional hockey only a few days ago and already observers are wondering what he plans to do post-career. While some certainly see him taking a position with the Boston Bruins, BPM Sports broadcaster Georges Laraque would like to see another alternative come to pass.

Indeed, the former Tricolore forward wants Patrice Bergeron to join the management of the Montreal Canadiens, even adding that General Manager Kent Hughes, who knows Patrice Bergeron very well, should give him a call right now to see if he would be interested in such a scenario.

Wow! Imagine if the forward, who has played for the Bruins his entire career, decided to accept a position with the CH, the greatest rival of his former team. That would be completely crazy and we bet Montreal fans would be thrilled to hear such news!

Let's just say the connection is rather easy to make: Patrice Bergeron grew up in Quebec and has an excellent relationship with Kent Hughes since he was his agent for several seasons. Moreover, his wife, Stéphanie Bertrand, is also a Quebecer, so it would not be surprising if they decided to return to live in Canada soon with their four children.


However, let's not forget that the 2023-2024 season will mark the centennial of the Boston Bruins. Being a man of great class, we would be extremely surprised to see Patrice Bergeron join another team, especially the Montreal Canadiens, during these celebrations. Having decided to retire from the world of hockey, the 38-year-old forward will undoubtedly want to enjoy his free time with his family before making a decision about his future.

However, could we see Patrice Bergeron join the Tricolore organization in the coming years? The question is worth asking and, honestly, we would greatly like such a situation to occur. Until then, we only wish him the utmost enjoyment of his retirement. We would also like to congratulate him for his simply incredible career in the NHL.
