Arguably the most beloved player currently on the Boston Bruins roster, Patrice Bergeron has done it all in the professional hockey, and he is only 29 years old. Whether it be winning a Stanley Cup in 2011, experiencing a Stanley Cup loss in 2013, winning a gold medal at the World Junior Championships in 2005, the World Championships in 2004 — at the age of 19 years old — and the Olympics as a member of team Canada twice in 2010 and 2014, Bergeron has experienced everything.

Patrice 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 he is widely considered to be next in line to the Bruins captaincy.

Showing that he can play offense just as efficiently as defense, Patrice Bergeron has scored extremely timely goals for the Boston Bruins multiple times in his career, and he has 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).

Patrice Bergeron is still under 30 years old and has a lot of time to move up on this list and potentially become #1 one day.
