Patrice Bergeron is one of Boston’s most beloved athletes these days, but how many Bruins fans remember the 18-year-old kid who joined the team back in 2003 and lived with teammate Martin Lapointe and his family?
Bergie has come a long way since his rookie year, earning many individual awards, hoisting a Stanley Cup and being named the team’s alternate captain.
