It’s most likely protected to imagine the 18-year NHL veteran can be on the roster when Canada releases it, as he continues to be one the very best two-way forwards within the league. However in case you ask Bergeron, he’s not precisely eager about that proper now.
Or if he’s, he’s at the least not alluding to it.

I’ve no management over that, however as an athlete you all the time problem your self to be at our greatest. And people issues clearly are in your radar.
“I’m very conscious that I’m Canadian and there’s lot of very gifted gamers. It’s gonna be powerful to be on that staff. I’m very conscious of that, however all I can actually management is that what we are able to do right here with the Bruins as a staff and go from there.”
