Bergeron likely next Bruins captain: report

Wednesday, 03.04.2015 / 7:53 PM / News

Patrice Bergeron is likely to be captain of the Boston Bruins someday, coach Claude Julien told CSN New England on Tuesday.

"It's probably undeniable that down the road when [current captain Zdeno Chara] is done with his career, if Bergeron is here it would be pretty hard to not make him the next captain," Julien told "So I think he feels comfortable in dealing with issues that maybe he didn't two or three years ago.

"I think that's just a player being a little more of a veteran player every year, and that we've got some young players that need some leadership. So he's kind of taken over a little bit."

Chara, a defenseman who turns 38 on March 18, has been Bruins captain since the 2006-07 season. He has three years remaining on his contract.

Wednesday, 03.04.2015 / 3:50 PM / News

Florida Panthers goalies Roberto Luongo (upper body) and Al Montoya (lower body) are each considered day-to-day after sustaining injuries Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, coach Gerard Gallant said Wednesday.

Montoya is likely out weeks, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie, and Luongo is having tests on his shoulder and will see an orthopedist.

Veteran Dan Ellis was recalled from San Antonio of the American Hockey League and will start Thursday against the Dallas Stars. The Panthers (28-23-13, 69 points) continue a season-long seven-game homestand sitting two points behind the Boston Bruins for the second Eastern Conference wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"We're extremely confident in [Ellis]," Florida defenseman Erik Gudbranson told the Panthers website. "It's going to bring that urgency into this dressing room going forward. At the end of the day, we understand our playoffs start now for the rest of the season to get in that final spot, and if not we can get up higher. Having that urgency in that dressing room is going to be really good for our organization."

NEW YORK -- Hilary Knight was one of an estimated 114 million-plus people in America watching Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1. And like many of those people, Knight was tuned in when Always aired its #LikeAGirl ad, part of its campaign to help instill confidence in young girls and tear down stereotypes.

For Knight, joining in was a logical next step.

"It was sort of a no-brainer to get involved with the campaign," Knight told "When I was growing up, 'play like a girl' or 'you shoot like a girl,' whatever it is, sort of had a negative connotation to it.

"After seeing the Super Bowl for the first Always 'Like A Girl' campaign, it really changed my view on the 'like a girl' phrase, and the tagline that they're using now."

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
