The 13th annual Pro-Am Gagne-Bergeron was held in Quebec City on Thursday night and was loaded with NHLers. According to the event's website, co-chairman Patrice Bergeron, Jonathan Huberdeau, Jonathan Marchessault Alexis Lafreniere, Yanni Gourde, Brad Marchand, among others were participating.

Bergeron, who announced his retirement from the National Hockey League in July after 19 seasons with the Boston Bruins, was given an over two-minute standing ovation from the crowd at Videotron Centre in Quebec City.



The 38-year-old finished his NHL career with numerous accolades including a Stanley Cup championship in 2011, six Selke Trophies, a Mark Messier Leadership Award and a King Clancy Memorial Trophy. In 1,294 career games, Bergeron had 1,040 points. He also accomplished quite a bit on the international stage including two Olympic gold medals and a World Cup of Hockey title.


Patrice Bergeron can't be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame until 2026, but there's no doubt that the selection committee will vote him in during his first year of eligibility.
