Patrice Bergeron's retirement, following a tough elimination at the hands of the Florida Panthers last year and a record-breaking season, caught many fans off guard. His exceptional personality and skills left an indelible mark on both the franchise, the NHL, and hockey in general.

Now, a surprising development involving his former teammate and friend hints at his potential comeback, less than a year after his returement.

Once again, the Boston Bruins are showing that they're among the NHL's elite, despite losing two great leaders last summer with Krejci and Bergeron.

Who better to fill Bergeron's shoes than Bergeron himself? This is the belief held by Brad Marchand, who replaced him as captain.

Marchand has even revealed that he's pushing Bergeron to make a return this season!

According to TVA Sports:

The Boston Bruins are doing very well without Patrice Bergeron, but Brad Marchand would like to see his old accomplice back on the ice:

"Bergy [Bergeron], I think he's annoyed by how many times I push him to come back to the game. He is excited about what's coming."

The strong bond between the former teammates could play a key role in Bergeron's decision. Making one last push for a Stanley Cup, alongside friends, could be enough to bring him back.
