Potential candidates for the next Boston Bruins captain if Bergeron retires

JUL 24, 2023   |   BY HUNTER BOWMAN
As the offseason unfolds, the absence of a signing from Patrice Bergeron raises questions about his potential retirement. While his departure would leave a significant void on the ice, it also affects the Bruins' locker room.

Bergeron's leadership, as both a veteran and team captain, has earned him immense respect across the league. Finding a worthy successor becomes a crucial task for the Bruins as they navigate this transitional phase.

Amid the speculation, several players on the Bruins' roster emerge as viable options for the captaincy.

Brad Marchand, his growth and composure make him a strong contender. With experience under the guidance of Zdeno Chara and Bergeron, Marchand embodies the team-first mentality that any captain should possess.


Another promising candidate is Charlie McAvoy, a standout defenseman and role model in the Boston community. As a young player locked in for the long term, McAvoy could provide stability and continuity as the team's captain.

Brandon Carlo, though not as obvious a choice, has benefited from learning alongside Chara. As a reliable defenseman, he has earned recognition, wearing the alternate captain's "A" jersey on occasions.

The talented David Pastrnak, a Hart trophy finalist, stands out as one of the best players in the NHL. His humility, kindness, and chemistry with teammates make him an influential figure on the ice, elevating the performance of those around him.

As the Bruins contemplate life without Bergeron's leadership, the qualities displayed by these potential captain candidates could make a profound impact on the team's future. The decision will undoubtedly shape the course of the Bruins' journey in the seasons to come.
