How Patrice Bergeron Could Play A Role In Charlie McAvoy's recover

Earlier today, the Boston Bruins announced that Charlie McAvoy will miss the next four weeks after suffering a sprained left knee, which puts him on track to return in time for the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy mentioned that the most difficult part for a young player returning from his injury like this is conditioning.  He then offered that a veteran like Patrice Bergeron, who is recovering from a broken foot himself can help McAvoy with this.

"Clearly, Bergy knows what to expect coming out of it," said Cassidy, per the Bruins official website. "We'll get him to talk to Charlie about what to do between now and then so that you don't drop off. It's natural when you don't play this time of year. Especially when the intensity goes up. You're going to lose a little bit of your edge.

"He has to find a way to keep up with his conditioning and keep mentally sharp during this stretch of timeWe will rely on Bergy in that area a little bit to keep him focused as best he can without actually being in the lineup."

Bergeron continues to show just how valuable he is to this team's success, both on and off the ice!
