11 of 11

#1 Patrice Bergeron – 2003

At only 29-years old, Patrice Bergeron has earned a place on the all-time great list for the Boston Bruins. Having played in 11 NHL seasons, appearing in the Stanley Cup Final twice, and winning once, Bergeron has been a fan-favorite since he first skated for the Bruins in 2003 at the age of 18. Bergeron is widely considered one of the best all-around players in the league, and his three Selke Trophy wins, combined with his consistent point totals can attest to that.

Bergeron is consistently the best face-off man in the league, and one can only assume he is the heir-apparent to the Bruins captaincy once current-captain Zdeno Chara‘s tenure with the Bruins is over. Having reached the thirty goal mark twice, and scoring over 50 points in 7 of his 11 seasons (some of which were shortened by lock-out, or concussion issues), Bergeron has consistently been a clutch player for Boston, scoring timely goals and providing energy on each and every one of his shifts. Bergeron’s contract runs until the 2021-2022 season, meaning he has the potential to continue impressing and earning his place on this list.
