Patrice Bergeron: Nears Extension With Bruins

Update: Bergeron (ribs/shoulder) is reportedly close to signing an eight-year extension with the Bruins, the Boston Herald reports.

Recommendation: The 27-year-old Bergeron has one season remaining on his contract with the Bruins and has stated his interest in staying with the team for the duration of his career. At present, Bergeron is recovering from several injuries that he sustained in the playoffs, but he expects to be healed up within a matter of weeks. Bergeron does have a concussion history, but when healthy, he is one of the league's most outstanding two-way forwards and a key cornerstone of the Bruins' franchise.
