BOSTON (AP) — Bruins center Patrice Bergeron has signed an eight-year extension through the 2021-2022 season. The contract worth $52 million begins after next season, the last of Bergeron’s current three-year deal with Boston.

The signing of their alternate captain on Friday comes two days after the Bruins signed goalie Tuukka Rask to an eight-year, $56 million deal. Rask had been a restricted free agent.

Bergeron tied for the team lead with nine postseason goals. He played the last game of the Stanley Cup finals with a broken rib and separated shoulder. After that Game 6 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, he was hospitalized with a punctured lung. He was released two days later.

Bergeron says he won’t need surgery.
