We've been through so many — we won together, we lost together. We grew up together. Hell of a career, obviously a Hall of Famer — no question about it. I'd like to congratulate you and your wife, Steph, your kids. I'm sure they're gonna be so happy to have you around every single day. I'm very happy to call you my friend and I wish you nothing but the best. I love you, buddy.»



The farewell video also featured defenseman Charlie McAvoy, who vowed to uphold Bergeron's legacy within the organization.
