BOSTON - The National Hockey League announced today, December 30, that Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has been selected to the 2020 NHL All-Star Last Man In vote. The 2020 NHL All-Star Last Man In vote allows one player from each team to join a pool of 31 players from which fans can select four (one from each division) to join their respective All-Star rosters.
Bergeron, who is in his 14th straight season serving the Bruins as an alternate captain, ranks third in scoring on the team with 17 goals and 18 assists for 35 points. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound center has seven multi-point games through 31 contests this season, capped by a four-point night against the Minnesota Wild on November 23. The Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec native became just the fifth player in Bruins history to score two goals in three consecutive games (December 21 to December 27) since Cam Neely did so in 1988-89.
Over a 16-year career, Bergeron has played in 1,059 games, collecting 338 goals and 510 assists for 848 points in that span, ranking sixth on the franchise's all-time scoring list.
Bergeron was originally selected by the Bruins in the second round (45th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
