Patrice Bergeron had the "honest belief" that there will be a shortened season of the National Hockey League (NHL) from January.
This is the reason the HC Lugano has evoked to explain Sunday the official start of the Boston Bruins forward, who played with the club for part of the lockout.
The organization has confirmed the news on its website, indicating that Quebecers will head to North America. But before going home, Bergeron will represent Canada at the Spengler Cup. Additional NHL stars, including Jason Spezza, John Tavares and Tyler Seguin, will wear the Maple Leaf at the event, which will take place in Switzerland between 26 and 31 December. Having briefly participated in the "Tour players," Bergeron joined HC Lugano in early October. In 21 games, he scored 11 goals and added 18 assists for a total of 29 points.
I probably should have posted this last night when I first heard about it, but I was reading it on the Swiss sites, and while I was doing broadcast info research for World Juniors.
