Bergeron eager to reunite with fans

Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has not only missed playing NHL hockey, but also missed fans of the game.

Bergeron, 27, played for Swiss team HC Lugano during the lockout and won the Spengler Cup for Canada during the tournament on New Year's Eve.

He is now looking forward to reuniting with his home team fans, who have been incredibly patient throughout the work stoppage.

"I'm very excited," Bergeron told "I'm looking forward to coming back to Boston and seeing the guys. Obviously, being on the ice, and the fans, it's been a long wait for them as much as it's been for us and I can't wait to share that with them. Overall, I'm just really excited and looking forward to the whole thing."

In 81 games with the Bruins last season, Bergeron posted 22 goals and 42 assists for 64 points.
