Patrice Bergeron did not perform particularly well on Friday night in the NHL All-Star Skills Competition, but he is happy for his children who were on the bench and who could watch their father. It will certainly remain a great memory for them
"Obviously you'd like to do better than what I did at that particular point," said Bergeron, as quoted by NHL "When you lose your rhythm it's hard to get it back.
I came here to enjoy myself. My kids were on the bench. It was an amazing night. I had a lot of fun. The kids loved it and enjoyed it. "I think it's gonna be something that they're gonna remember, especially my oldest [Zack]," said Bergeron.
"He's at an age where he's gonna be able to remember and hopefully have some good memories out of it. I know I will. That was a blast." Bergeron was most impressed with two young players: Trevor Zegras (Anaheim) and Jack Hughes (New Jersey).
"Zegras, the move was pretty amazing," said Bergeron. "I thought Jack Hughes was well thought out. He put a lot of work in it. Everyone did…those two stood out to me."
Gary Bettman and Bill Daly on new events
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly have announced new events "It's been 12 years since we were at Fenway," said Bettman.
"A lot of money has been put into the building, it's not quite the same ballpark. Boston is obviously a great hockey town." "We've now done over 30 outdoor games, if you want to keep doing them you have to go back to some places.
"It won't look and it won't be the same, [NHL chief content officer] Steve Mayer won't allow it, as it was last time. It'll be a new experience in a venue that has been transformed and modernized in some ways." "We think it'll be a great event. You'll have to speculate on who the opponent will be."
