Patrice Bergeron injury: Bruins F hospitalized since conclusion of Game 6

Elsa

Patrice Bergeron sustained a multitude of injuries in the final two games of the Stanley Cup Final. He has been under hospital care since the conclusion of the series.

Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has remained under hospital observation for the last two nights, the team announced Wednesday.

The Bruins are providing their end-of-season media availability and the club's public relations department informed reporters that Bergeron would not be available because of his hospitalization. The forward sustained a broken rib and tore cartilage in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night. The combination of injuries forced him to spend the night in a Chicago-area hospital. However, he was able to leave the next morning and returned to Boston with the team.

Bergeron was able to participate in Game 6 on Monday night, which ultimately proved to be the deciding game of the NHL's championship. During the contest, he separated his shoulder, which compounded the complications of his other injuries. Despite this new development, Bergeron was on the ice as the final horn sounded on the 2013 season.

As of Wednesday morning, the extent of Bergeron's hospitalization remains unclear. From a surface level perspective, he obviously is not in prime form at the moment. What type of care he is receiving is crucial in understanding his extended stay.
