The Bruins captaincy is down to three players

JUL 27, 2023   |   BY HUNTER BOWMAN
In a moment that will resonate throughout the Boston Bruins' history, longtime star Patrice Bergeron has officially announced his retirement. At 38 years old, his remarkable career leaves an indelible legacy as one of the team's greatest players and leaders.

As the Bruins bid farewell to their iconic captain, the pressing question now arises: Who will step up to don the revered "C" on their sweater? Let's explore the leading candidates.

Brad Marchand, a true stalwart of the Bruins' roster, emerges as a prime contender for the captaincy role. The 35-year-old winger has been an integral part of the team for the entirety of his 947-game career.

Moreover, Marchand's evolution as a formidable leader over the years has been evident, making him a natural choice to assume the mantle of captaincy.


For those seeking a younger leader to guide the team, Charlie McAvoy stands out as a formidable option. As the defensive anchor for the Bruins, McAvoy has proven himself to be not only a skilled defenseman but also a rising leader on the ice.

With his contract securing his presence until the 2029-30 season, McAvoy's captaincy could potentially span a long and transformative period for the team.

Another tantalizing candidate vying for the coveted captaincy is none other than the superstar forward, David Pastrnak. As the Bruins' premier player, Pastrnak's brilliance on the ice is undeniable.

Furthermore, General Manager Don Sweeney has already alluded to Pasta's potential to embrace a significant leadership role this season. With the ink still fresh on his substantial eight-year deal, Pastrnak's captaincy would mark an exciting new chapter in his career and in the team's future.

The Bruins now face a critical decision in selecting their next captain, as they search for a worthy successor to Bergeron's distinguished reign. The chosen leader will carry the torch forward, guiding the team through the highs and lows of the hockey journey.

As the new season beckons, all eyes are on Boston to witness who will step up and embrace the honor of being the Bruins' next captain.
