The Boston Bruins players cleaned out their lockers for the summer on Monday and the team brass locked up two players to new contracts.
More and more, it appears that Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron will retire.
That and more in the latest BHN Wrap:
The Boston Bruins held their exit interviews Monday and met the media for the final time this season. The team brass also got some business done as they signed defenseman Jakub Zboril to two-year contract extension and center Johnny Beecher to a three-year entry level contract.
The writing appears to be very clear on the wall that Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron has played his final game in the NHL.
