Wild Patrice Bergeron Return Rumor to Bruins Sparks Debate

Despite conversation on a popular podcast about it, multiple sources are denying any possibility that Patrice Bergeron is making a comeback.

Recent discussions on the “Spittin’ Chiclets” podcast, featuring Paul Bissonnette and Ryan Whitney, have ignited speculation about the potential return of former Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron to the Boston Bruins. The rumor mill suggests a February comeback, fueled by Bergeron’s participation in Bruins’ alumni games to stay in shape.

You can see in the video below, the two hosts are talking about how they don’t necessarily buy the notion that a player as young as Bergeron and someone who is likely still in great shape would be just practicing for an alumni game he would dominate.

However, Boston Hockey Now’s Jimmy Murphy casts doubt on this possibility, citing two sources who have dismissed the notion of Bergeron making a comeback. Despite the chatter, Murphy emphasizes that Bergeron has consistently stated he’s content with his decision to retire and is a man of his word. Steve Conroy of The Boston Herald writes in a tweet that he spoke with Bergeron via text and was told, “I am NOT making a comeback.” Matt Porter of the Boston Globe said the same and shot down any return rumors.

Bergeron Is Happy Being Retired, He’s Not Making an NHL Comeback

Bergeron, whose illustrious career includes a Stanley Cup ring and numerous Selke Trophies, has solidified his legacy as a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer. With nothing left to prove on the ice, he retired to prioritize spending more time with his family. The itch to play might be there, but not enough to change his mind so quickly.
