Patrice Bergeron is one of the NHL’s best centers. He isn’t the scoring machine like some other centers, but he does excel in other areas — namely on faceoffs.
Bergeron led the league in faceoff win percentage last season, further demonstrating his skill on the dot. He seems to use a mixture of size, strength and speed to win each puck drop, which is a rare combination of skills.
NESN’s Billy Jaffe took to the ice at the TD Garden to figure out just what it is that makes Bergerson so good on the face off. Check out the video above to see Bergeron describe and demonstrate exactly how he attacks each faceoff.
