The Boston Bruins received some good news as Patrice Bergeron began working out for the first time since his latest concussion.
“I’ve met with Patrice. He’s been working out. He’s on his road to recovery, so it looks good,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told Boston radio station 98.5 The Sports Hub Wednesday.
Bergeron suffered a concussion in a game against the Ottawa Senators last week when he skated into Colin Greening’s elbow near the Bruin’s net while backchecking in the second period of a 3-2 win.
There is currently no timetable for his return to the lineup.
At the time of his injury, Bergeron led Boston in scoring with 31 points in 35 games – Bergeron has since been passed by Brad Marchand who has 32 points in 37 games.
The 27-year-old has a history of concussions, including a severe one he suffered in 2007 that put his career in jeopardy.
