According to the defender of the Boston Bruins Zdeno Chara, forward Patrice Bergeron is one of the attackers more difficult to compete in the national hockey League (NHL).
Since they are teammates since the 2006-2007 season in Massachusetts, Chara had very little opportunity of dealing with it before. However, it has not hesitated to compare him to Pavel Datsyuk in reliance on this he lived every day to the training.
“If I had to identify a player who is very unpredictable in all aspects, it is Pavel Datsyuk, began by saying Chara to the network Sportsnet. He played hockey the right way. If the team needed it, he was very strong. If the team asked him, he went in front of the net. His arsenal of skills was broader than 99.9% of players. You can’t find so many players with so many weapons.”
“To have played in the same team for the last 15 years, I would say that Patrice is one of those players, he added. I don’t play against him, but during training sessions he competes always and all the time the good things on the ice.”
Datsyuk has accumulated 314 goals and 918 points in 953 games with the Red Wings in Detroit before leaving the NHL for the kontinental hockey League (KHL) in 2016. Bergeron, himself, has amassed 352 goals and 869 points in 1089 games with the Bruins. The first has won three trophies Selke and the second, four.
