Patrice Bergeron will be starring in the new NHL documentary called NHL 36.
"Patrice has won a Stanley Cup, plus a gold medal at the Olympics, at the World Championship and at the World Junior Championship," said Ross Greenburg, executive producer, NHL 36. "He is one of the League's most under-rated superstars."
Listen. We love Patrice Bergeron. The guy's a beast on the ice but he's pretty much all business. First impression of this idea is that he's gonna come off looking like a stiff, especially compared to Patrick Kane. If you want a gregarious personality, Brad Marchand would've been a good pick.
Bergeron's all business. However...
We just need to booze the kid up.
This might be the closest thing to starring in 24/7 the Bruins are going to get in a while. Enjoy it.
