Bruins sign F Patrice Bergeron to 3-year extension

      BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Bruins have signed Patrice Bergeron to
a 3-year contract extension.
      The team announced Friday that the deal will keep the
25-year-old forward in Boston through the 2013-14 season.
      A second-round draft pick in 2003, Bergeron has 99 goals and 181
assists in 376 regular-season games, as well as five goals and 15
assists in 31 playoff games.
      He had 19 goals and 33 assists last season to tie David Krejci
for the team lead with 52 points.
      Bergeron, entering his seventh NHL season, missed most of the
2007-08 season because of a severe concussion.
      The Bruins, who open their season with two games against the
Phoenix Coyotes this weekend in the Czech Republic, did not
disclose terms of the deal.
