Patrice Bergeron Released from Hospital, ‘Doing Well’


The Blackhawks paraded through Chicago with the Stanley Cup on Friday, but Bruins fans were given reason to smile, too.

Center Patrice Bergeron, who suffered a number of significant injuries during the B’s Cup run, was released from the hospital, according to team president Cam Neely, owner Jeremy Jacobs and principal Charlie Jacobs. Bergeron had a separated shoulder, broken rib, torn cartilage and a punctured lung and was admitted to the hospital after the B’s lost Game 6 on Monday night.

“He’s recovering and doing well and will have a full recovery,” Neely said. “What he did certainly speaks volumes about Patrice as an athlete, a human being.”

Bergeron had nine goals and six assists in the 2013 postseason.
