At just 18 years old, David Pastrnak made his mark on the Boston Bruins' roster following his selection in the first round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Over the course of nine years, Pastrnak has shared the ice with the legendary Patrice Bergeron, and their partnership has been nothing short of remarkable.

As Bergeron announced his retirement, the 27-year-old forward took to the Bruins' social media account to express his deep emotions and gratitude towards his captain and long-time friend.

"Bergy's not only an incredible player, but he's also an extraordinary human being... I've learned so much from him. It's not just about hockey; it's about embracing our shared humanity. He's played a significant role in shaping many of us into better individuals,"
shared Pastrnak sincerely.


The bond between the young forward and Bergeron extended far beyond the game, with Bergeron serving as a genuine mentor and confidant.

Now, with Bergeron's absence, Pastrnak faces a pivotal moment in his career. Armed with an impressive eight-year, $90 million contract extension, the Bruins will rely on him to step up as a leader both on and off the ice.
