Bergeron out of the hospital, contract on his mind

BOSTON (WHDH) — Patrice Bergeron left the hospital and began focusing on the off season – but he also has a career deal on his mind.

The Bruins’ star forward had an amazing postseason – scoring nine goals and six assists.

That all came to a halt with an injured lung in the Stanley Cup final games – though he played on.

Bergeron hopes he can get that big contract from the team that drafted him when he was only 18-years-old.

"It’s my home. I feel like it is. I love the city, I love the people, and I definitely love the organization. It would mean a lot to me and hopefully we can work something out,” said Bergeron.

Bergeron also said he is very confident both sides will agree on a deal – but he does not know how long it will take to get done.
