In Bruins news you can use:

  • Patrice Bergeron credited his junior coaches for molding his defensive game, and seemed genuinely awe-struck to have received his trophy from the hands of Bob Gainey himself. Boston Globe
  • BTW, it would appear that congratulations are in order for more than one reason... @mkmolnar
  • Maybe more amazing that four Selke wins is what Bergeron worked through to play at this level for so very long. Bonus: the Golden Knights haul, which includes Andy Brickley’s cousin, draftee Connor Brickley, as well as Reilly Smith, acquired for a 4th round pick. South Coast Today
  • Clearly Bergy has spent all season riding the coattails of THE 2017 NHL FIRST ALL-STAR TEAM MEMBER (and Bruins linemate) Brad Marchand. You just know there’ll be chirps. WEEI
  • Colin Miller was expendable, with other youngsters in the pipeline and with nagging questions about his ceiling. WEEI
  • Aside from his ceiling, there were also unsettled questions of Miller’s effort and motivation. The Bruins did not lose as much as other teams did to Las Vegas, if that is any comfort. Boston Globe
  • Counterpoint: The Bruins frittered away a very valuable asset in today’s NHL market in order to protect the likes of Riley Nash, Ryan Spooner, and Kevan Miller. Inconceivable! CBS Boston
  • Colby Cave spoke to his hometown paper about his professional progress, and how the deep run into the postseason left some PBruins changing in overflow dressing rooms. News Optimist
  • The Bruins open the regular season against the Predators, mark your calendars for October 5th. Mass Live
  • Kirk Luedeke is a busy man. He paused yesterday to cover the upcoming draft, the merits of Anders Bjork and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, why quick thinking and hockey sense trumps other talent such as foot speed, and other off-season news. (Audio, 1:00:21) Bruins Diehards

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Here are the highlights from last night’s NHL Awards, including a teary Masterton Trophy winner, the kids who won all the marbles, and the diminutive player who won the Lady Byng. (With multiple videos) Sportsnet
  • Thirty Thoughts notes that Marian Hossa will need to sit out the upcoming season, while Jarome Iginla will decidedly be IN. And oh, the wheel of goaltending spins! Sportsnet
