The Boston Bruins reserved a beautiful ceremony for their captain, Patrice Bergeron, to mark his 1,000 points in the National Hockey League on Saturday.
Watch the tribute in the main video!
The 37-year-old Quebecer was greeted before the start of today’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at TD Garden.
The Governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, has also given number 37 a proclamation formalizing that December 17, 2022 had been declared “Patrice Bergeron Day” in this American state.
Bergeron reached this milestone by obtaining an assist on a goal by Brad Marchand, on November 21, in a duel against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The native of L’Ancienne-Lorette obtained his 1000th point just over 19 years after collecting his first. He was an accomplice to a Brian Rolston net on October 15, 2003.
He thus became the fourth player in history to have amassed 1,000 points with the Bruins. Raymond Bourque (1506), Johnny Bucyk (1339) and Phil Esposito (1012) preceded him.
