Patrice Bergeron, a member of the Triple Gold Club (#25), has retired after a successful 19-season NHL career and a remarkable international journey. His accolades include being a virtual lock for induction into both the IIHF Hall of Fame and the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Drafted 45th overall in 2003 by the Boston Bruins, Bergeron made an immediate impact and later achieved the “reverse double gold” by winning gold at the IIHF Ice Hockey Men’s World Championship and the IIHF World Juniors.

Having done it all, Bergeron retires

He formed a potent partnership with Sidney Crosby during his career, with memorable moments such as winning Olympic gold in 2010 and 2014.

Bergeron was not only known for his offensive skills but also for being an exceptional two-way player. He won the Selke Trophy six times, setting a record for nominations and displaying his defensive prowess.

In his NHL career, he played in 1,294 regular-season games, surpassing the 1,000-point mark, and appeared in 170 playoff games, contributing 128 points. He captained the Bruins in his final three years.

Patrice Bergeron’s retirement leaves a void in the game, but his legacy as one of the finest players of the 21st century will endure.
