Patrice Bergeron will be joining HC Lugano of the Swiss League, according to Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com. He’ll team up with Ducks blueliner Luca Sbisa, who has already played a few games with the Swiss club.
Bergeron had 22 goals and 64 points in 2011-12 and captured the Selke Trophy in recognition of his defensive accomplishments.
He was poised to enter his second NHL campaign in 2004-05, but ended up with the AHL Providence Bruins because of the lockout. His time in the minors seemed to do him some good and he posted a career-high 73 points after the lockout compared to just 39 points in 2003-04.
This time around he’s entering the lockout as one of the Boston Bruins’ best and most expensive players. He’s in the middle season of his three-year, $15 million deal with the club.
