Bruins sign gritty Bergeron to eight-year extension

(Reuters) - Patrice Bergeron, who led the Boston Bruins in post-season goals and played the Stanley Cup Finals with a punctured lung, was rewarded with an eight-year $52 million contract extension, the NHL team said on Friday.

In nine seasons, all with the Bruins, Bergeron has amassed 153 goals and 433 points.
